2013 Earth Day Giveaway

Spring is such an exciting time of year with plenty of reasons to celebrate. Here at SariBlue we like to celebrate the change of the season, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and of course Earth Day. Earth Day is a great occasion to focus on the health of our planet.

Earth Day is an annual day on which events are held worldwide to demonstrate support for environmental protection. Earth Day is observed on April 22 each year. The April 22 date was designated as International Mother Earth Day by a consensus resolution adopted by the United Nations in 2009. Earth Day is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network, and celebrated in more than 192 countries every year. You can learn more about Earth day on the wiki page (where this info came from) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth_Day .

There is great information about ways in which Earth Day has impacted all of us globally and how you can support the efforts on The Earth Day Network. They coordinate amazing events and ways to participate in the grassroots effort of A Billion Acts of Green .

This year we celebrate Earth Day with a few of our friends by sharing an eco-friendly giveaway. SariBlue and the shops that are participating in this giveaway are all eco-friendly artisans. We hope you enjoy learning a little bit about these amazing women owned and run small shops and enter the giveaway for a chance to win some truly beautiful items. The rafflecopter has all the info on how to enter and we all appreciate your support. Please feel free to share this with your friends!

1.     Jody Edwards Fine Art and Illustration  Coupon Code: EarthDay2013 for 25% Off

Jody says “I think I was born an artist. With loving, supportive parents, I grew up in an idyllic small country town. Perfect creative combination of naive optimism surrounded by rolling farmland, forests and lakes. It was inevitable, I would paint what I loved.”

I can speak from personal experience that Jody’s work is first rate; I purchased a number of her pieces for myself and for my father this past winter. We all love the focus on nature and it happens that my father’s favorite TV show is CSI: Jody’s work can been seen on the hit show in almost every episode.

Jody donates half of the proceeds of her Raptor inspired prints to the Mountsberg Raptor Centre to support their efforts in caring for rehabilitated Birds of Prey and educating the public on the birds’ plight and importance in our environment.

2.     Faith Marcus Designs Coupon Code: EarthDay for 15% Off

Faith says “I always loved gemstones. Drawing from my design and aesthetic background, I decided one day to create a necklace for myself. I wanted something that I hadn’t seen before, anywhere. I immediately sensed that the gemstones had healing attributes beyond their intrinsic beauty. It was as if they spoke to me.”

Faith combines gemstones, charms and elements of design that are classic and unique. Her work emanates spirituality which may come from her studies of Feng Shui, meditation and several spiritual disciplines.

Focusing all of her experience, wisdom and vision into her fine jewelry collectibles, Faith delivers beauty, elegance and empowerment to the wearer of her original creations the world over.

3.     Esscentual Alchemy Coupon Code: EarthDay2013 for 15% Off

Amanda says “When I create a perfume I do so intentionally. Being mindful of putting myself in a positive and loving, and uplifting emotional place. So that the perfume is positive, loving and uplifting emotionally as well. Each one blessed with good thoughts and wishes for the wearer.”

Amanda Feely is the designer and owner of Essecentual Alchemy. She is also a classically trained opera singer, a lyric coloratura. Her mantra of “I compose music for your nose” makes a lot of sense. One of the things I love most about Amanda’s shop are the expressively, rich and eloquent descriptions of her perfumes.
