Earth to Alice - Giveaway Closed.

Top: Vince; Jeans: JBrand "Kiki"; Infiniti Scarf: UO; Hat: H&M; Shoes: Stuart Weitzman; Bag: Earth to Alice
My Mom and I spent Saturday morning at the local farmer's market, Singh Farms, which is nestled between fertile earth and a canopy of shade trees.  I brought along this organic Earth to Alice tote, made out of a recycled coffee burlap bag.  I love the idea of taking items and keeping them relevant through re-purposing them.  What once held heaps of coffee beans, now holds my iPhone, DSLR camera, a favorite lipstick, a good book, and a couple of purchases from Singh Farms.  My favorite?  Giant english muffins.  Anyways, I think it's great that we have eco-friendly companies out there, like Earth to Alice.  Not only do they care about our foot print, they also support the fight behind ending childhood hunger, donating part of their profit to St. Mary's Food BankEarth to Alice is definitely doing positive things on this spinning planet.
So, want to get green and snatch up one of these sustainable totes yourself? Simply visit Earth to Alice's website, and tell me what you like or like about the company, below!  Winner will be announced next week.

And the winner of the $100 to Swell giveaway, randomly chosen by me, is:
 Congratulations to both of you!!

Love farmer's markets and you look beautiful, as always! Glad you and your mother had a lovely time! Oh and I'm a carb-a-holic too...it's a must in life! :)

Visited Earth to Alice and what a great cause indeed! Loving the Everyday Emily tote with the Bebe print, like the one you are sporting!

Thanks for such a great opportunity and good luck to everyone entering!

i'm in love with their jewelry boards, but i really love how easy their site is to naviate! you look so beautiful ALWAYS! you have inspired me to rethink my makeup application and take more time!

I love how you can customize your own bag or jewelry board (it makes it crafty and personal!) I would pick the Paula Revere so I could wear it cross body and have enough room to carry all that I would need on a day at a festival.

Great site. Thanks for sharing.

I love this company, thanks for sharing! I need one of their bags for school. Everyone at FIT has totes like this (not nearly as cute), my current one is a whole foods canvas bad so this would be a total upgrade that I would us everyday! I love the bags that have Brasil on it cause that is where my hubby served his mission :) I am a fan!! Also love how easy their website is. Would love a bag from them!

Rissy said...

farmer's markets are the best... and I'd like to such a large english muffin... ok fine, I'd like to eat one.

That bag is cute, but you styled it awesomely to make it look even better : )

Sounds like a fabulous weekend to me!! I love the Everyday Emily tote bag. Love even more that they donate 1% of all their proceeds to the Earth in our Alice to Earth program. What an awesome company!

And I was totally going to order one of those coffee burlap tote bags if I didn't win... but then I saw the price. Maybe someday... but my husband is out of work right now.
SO I'm hoping I WIN!!

You look very cute, do you read your comments? I would love it if you responded to your sometimes and answered questions--that way I wouldn't feel like I was just talking to myself when I comment.

Jessica Gitler said...

your photos are always so very stunning and full of great color!! I just am so in love with these bags, thinking of maybe trying to make my own, we are going to costa rica for a month and I am sure I could pick up so old coffee burlap bags there for sure!! what a great idea!!

I love that the site includes U.S. Hunger statistics to promote awareness. The stats were pretty shocking to me. Their products also look really well made and are super fun.
