ecojot Giveaway

This giveaway has ended. Thanks to all that entered!
The benefit of being a stay at home mom is getting to take off whenever you'd like. My freelance writing lets me work where ever there is an internet connection. But, the sad part is that for the past 2 years I've had no money to travel. I still don't have any money to travel, but opportunities keep coming up and I'm loving every minute of it! Especially since I know I will be traveling every month for the next 3 months. :)


I don't have a GPS and I doubt I'll ever invest in one. And I really hate printing out directions when I know I'll lose them and need them again later. So I've been writing them down in a 5x7 ecojot journal and keeping it in my car! This has been great because they will be in a safe place for when I go back. I am a ditz when it comes to remembering how to get places. I love that I'm cutting back on paper waste and taking it to the next level by using recycled paper which I will eventually get recycled again.

If you've been with me a while, you might remember my ecojot review in October. If you weren't around, ecojot sells Eco-friendly agendas, cards, calendars, folders, journals, notebooks, sketchbooks, scrapbooks, workbooks and wrapping paper. They are all made with 100% post-consumer recycled paper that is acid and chlorine free. All of the inks and glues are vegetable based and bio-degradable. And their new Spring line is awesome!

Another AWESOME thing about ecojot is their new Buy 1, We Give 1 Campaign. With every Jumbo Journal, 5x7 Journal, Eco Studio Sketchbook, or Eco Kids Sketchbook purchase, ecojot will donate a workbook to a child in need! ecojot has partnered with 3 organizations to ensure the shipment of the workbooks to developing countries. I've heard parents in the US complain about not having money for school supplies, but think about the impoverished countries where they can't even afford books. ecojot understands the importance of children's arts and literacy and are helping these children get the supplies they need.

Being a writer, I love having notebooks in my bag in case I get an idea or Ella says something adorable that I want to remember. They also come in handy if we are waiting somewhere and Ella needs a distraction. But, I always felt guilty wasting paper for just scribbles. Granted, it could be recycled. But trees were being cut down just for our wasteful behaviors. In college I did switch over to writing everything on the computer. But I don't carry my computer to the aquarium or beach. ecojot sent me a Jumbo 6x9 journal and a 5x7 journal to review. The 5x7 has stayed in my car as my directions book.
And my favorite 6x9 journal has stayed in my bag as my note journal. It has 150 pages which will be more than enough to get me through the next year or so. And have I said how much I love the quality and artwork! ecojot is sold in stores internationally and can be purchased online.
