Welcome to the Relish Reusable Giveaway Hop hosted by Measuring Flower and Eco Crazy Mom! I have teamed up with a group of other green bloggers to bring you a bunch of fun, eco-friendly, and reusable giveaways worth a minimum of $25 each. So, after you've entered our awesome giveaway below, be sure to "hop" on to the next blog to enter their giveaway as well. You can find a list linking to all the other blogs towards the bottom of this post. Don't forget to enter the event's big grand grand prizes, including $200 of reusable products donated by Reuseit.com!

Restaurant packaging used for take-out and left over food is a waste problem.  According to Californians Against Waste, only about 5% of California communities require restaurant packaging to be recyclable, which translates into a lot of waste that enters our landfills.  

A few simple ways you can make less waste is provide your own packaging:
  • Bring your own coffee cup to your favorite coffee spot.  The way I got into the habit for doing this, was that if I forgot my cup, I didn't stop for coffee!  Since I love coffee, this was a habit I learned very quickly. 
  • Plan ahead for taking food home.  Before I found our giveaway,  We pack our own containers to take our food home.  An inventive woman, has made it easy for you, with her  Go Green Doggie Bag. 

Talking (a little less) Trash is giving away a Go Green Doggie Bag. This is the perfect reusable 'take it home' doggy bag to help eliminate Styrofoam containers.  Now, when you are headed out to a restaurant, grab this reusable shopping bag.  It includes four reusable storage plates, two soup bowls and lids.  

This picture shows 5 plates.  Our version has 4 plates and two soup bowls.

The divided storage plates have snap-on lids to let you easily and conveniently store and/or freeze your 'take home.'   They work well in the freezer, microwave and dishwasher.   The sturdy plastic plates come in different translucent colors, letting you see what's inside.  Lids feature closeable vent holes and easy-lift tabs.   These containers are BPA free!

Our prize is valued at over $28.00.  We will randomly draw a winner from the comments posted below.  We will close the contest to entries at midnight on April 15th, 2013.  You must be at least 18 years old to enter.   Be sure to give us a way to contact of you if you win!  Extra entry for posting one way you pledge to make less trash in the future.

Be sure to check back throughout the month.  We have other giveaways to celebrate Earth Day, and encourage reuse, including a gorgeous Glass Dharma straw pack, and yummy body products in compostable packaging from Organic Essence.  We will also be offering up creative ways to reuse/upcycle common materials to make art!   Please take a minute and follow our blog.
