CoolCanucks Blog Contest – pure | simple LIVING Wine bag Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Friday, May 28th, 2010


What can you do to live green? What can you do to help the envi­ron­ment and reduce your car­bon foot­print? There are so many choices and options avail­able that the aver­age per­son can do. These things don’t have to cost a for­tune and are easy to incor­po­rate into daily living.

I was happy to come across this web­site called pure | sim­ple LIVING! They cer­tainly do their part to help fam­i­lies try to live a greener and more sus­tain­able lifestyle by offer­ing earth-friendly prod­ucts for every­day use.

“Liv­ing green does not have to mean mak­ing big sac­ri­fices. Every small change we make in the right direc­tion counts in our col­lec­tive effort to min­i­mize our impact on the envi­ron­ment. And we believe that we can all make small changes, one change at a time. While we advo­cate reduc­ing con­sump­tion (of every­thing) and reusing what we already own, when we do need to buy some­thing new, we can choose an earth-friendly option which, most often, tends to be the human-friendly option as well.

We are proud to be Cana­dian so we make a con­scious effort to buy local and to sup­port Cana­dian busi­nesses; we believe that local is always best, not only for the envi­ron­ment but for the econ­omy. When we can’t find a Made in Canada solu­tion, we strive to be socially respon­si­ble and ensure that our sup­pli­ers fol­low eth­i­cal (sweatshop-free, fair trade) busi­ness prac­tices, par­tic­u­larly when it comes to over­seas manufacturing.

We only select the best eco­log­i­cally minded prod­ucts we can find, prod­ucts that are safe for us, our fam­i­lies and the earth. Think of us as the first stop on your jour­ney to reduc­ing the size of your foot­print on our planet.

Be kind to your envi­ron­ment and it will be kind to you!”

pure | sim­ple LIVING sells many green prod­ucts and shop­ping online with them is a com­plete snap as every­thing is so neatly cat­e­go­rized on the left!

Choose from many prod­ucts such as Babies & Kids, Kitchen & Din­ing, Liv­ing & Clean­ing, Bed & Bath, Bags, and Apparel!

pure | sim­ple LIVING sent me a won­der­ful Wine Bag to review and I love it!

“The ulti­mate gift (or re-gift)!

This is an original-design from pure | sim­ple LIVING. These bags are made locally in Toronto from GOTS-certified heavy-weight organic cot­ton can­vas with styl­ish metal grom­met detail. Gen­er­ous siz­ing makes it ideal for more than just pre­sent­ing a typ­i­cal 750ml bot­tle of wine — larger or more uniquely-shaped bot­tles can be accommodated.

Add this sturdy and well-constructed bag to your list of host­ess gifts, ensur­ing that it will be gifted and re-gifted for years to come!”

Our fam­ily and friends cer­tainly do enjoy our wine, so this defi­nately made a wel­come addi­tion to our home! I can hardly wait to load it with a nice big bot­tle of wine, tie it with a huge bow, and give it as a gift to some­one close! Perfect!!
