An Eco-Friendly Giveaway with Belle Terre

The giveaway is now closed! Check out the winner here and if you are not the lucky one, you can get a discount when shopping at the Belle Terre etsy shop!

Last Monday I presented to you the sustainable family behind Belle Terre's amazing eco-conscious hygiene products. As they put it: "We want to prove that a small business can operate profitably while having no negative impact on the environment. Our commitment to our customers, our community, and the world at large is that we will provide great, all natural products while improving the environment and the community around us." 

Julia and Wayne were so excited by the positive feedback their interview received that today they are donating an amazing prize pack!

 


All of Belle Terre's items are handmade by them. They use only 100% natural ingredients and select organic and/or sustainably harvested ingredients when possible. They also use minimal packaging and  post-consumer recycled materials whenever they use packaging.

Belle Terre's commitment to their customers, their community, and the world at large is that they will provide great, all natural products while improving the environment and the community.

And YES! One lucky Kanelstrand Organic Living reader will receive a beautiful eco friendly gift box containing all natural soap, lotion and lip balm worth $20!

But this is not all! The winner gets to choose the ingredients from the Belle Terre's list! So, all of you who loved the Avocado Lavender Natural Lotion now have the chance to own it!
