Giveaway alert: spending money from terra20, Ottawa’s eco store
I’m very excited to be posting this giveaway from Fishbowl patron, terra20!
I’ve written about terra20 before, it’s an eco-friendly retailer here in Ottawa. They have two locations in Ottawa – Pinecrest near the Ikea and Wellington West – and have an online store as well. Have you been? If not, there is no better time to check it out because (a) you could win $$ and (b) Earth Day is coming up and terra20 has planned all kinds of things to help celebrate.
On Saturday, April 19, terra20 will host a family-oriented pre-Earth Day event from noon-4:00 p.m. at the Pinecrest store. Everyone is invited to come and take part in the festivities.
Kids will love the fun activities that will teach them a few small ways that we can all make a difference. Special activity stations include colouring on locally produced plantable seed paper (plant it later and watch it grow!), composting demos, non-toxic mini manicures, healthy snack preparation demos and snacks, and an upcycling education station where guests will learn the stories behind some of terra20′s most innovative and waste-reducing brands and products.
And here’s something really cool: terra20 is also collecting previously loved sweaters throughout the month of April, and sending them to Toronto company Cate + Levi to make adorable upcycled puppets. Anyone who brings in a sweater will receive a coupon to redeem on the special batch of puppets that will be created from the terra20-collected sweaters. (And if they’re anything like the ones they have in the store now I can tell you THEY WILL BE ADORABLE.)
To help YOU try something new and become better acquainted with all the great products terra20 has on the shelf, they’ve given me one $100 gift card to give to one lucky recipient.
