OrganiLuxe Giveaway

This giveaway has ended. Thanks to all that entered!!
Picnics are awesome in the Fall! There's nothing better than packing a lunch to head to the park, mountains, festivals, produce picking and so forth. I try to keep Ella outside as much as possible in the Fall and Spring since the temps are bearable. When we went apple picking a couple of weeks ago, we enjoyed our picnic lunch while watching the roosters run around. With over 3.8 billion pounds of garbage generated every year, it's important to cut back on using plastic bags, napkins, juice boxes, and aluminum foil. Lunch sets aren't just for the kiddos anymore. Adults should be enjoying the benefits as well! If I had an office job, I know I'd pack my lunch- so why not do it in style?

OrganiLuxe sent me a beautiful Handmade Organic Lunch Bag Set to review and it's stellar! It is a 4 piece set with a lunch bag, sandwich bag, snack bag and napkin all made with 100% certified organic cotton. Each bag is lined with undyed, unbleached organic fabric, so you have no BPA to worry about or harmful chemicals coming into contact with your food. I've seen tons of reusable lunch kits, but none came complete with a napkin! Think about how much waste you will cut back on by using a cloth napkin with your lunch instead of paper towels or paper napkins. The whole kit is machine washable, so if your napkin gets dirty it's easy to clean. I love the colors of the lunch kit. I normally go with pink, but am really glad I got the aqua. Pictures can't do this bag the justice it deserves! The sandwich bag is large enough for a big sandwich and the lunch bag can hold fruit or other food as well.
OrganiLuxe is a mother and daughter team that started when Leah's daughter was diagnosed with food allergies. They did a bunch of research on child allergies and found out that chemicals and toxins in our environment have contributed to the rise of allergies, autism and asthma. Janis and Leah decided they wanted to team up and help others live a more green lifestyle by selling safe Eco-friendly products that are truly unique. Janis is the master sewer of the beautiful lunch set above.

OrganiLuxe carries handmade lunch kits, bedding, bibs, diaper bags, nursing covers and pillows, shopping cart covers, purses, shopping bags and more! I love that each item is handmade and 100% organic cotton. They also take custom orders for items that you like but need in a different color or size.
