CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Miss Malaprop Review & $50 Gift Certificate Giveaway!!CLOSED

Wednesday, August 11th, 2010

Miss Mala­prop owner and founder Mal­lory Whit­field is a proud res­i­dent of New Orleans, Louisiana. Miss Mala­prop fea­tures many gifts inspired by New Orleans and made by New Orleans based artists. Miss Mala­prop is cur­rently donat­ing a per­cent­age of all sales (both online & in per­son events) to help with cleanup efforts related to the recent Gulf of Mex­ico BP oil spill dis­as­ter which makes me so proud!!

Miss Mala­prop is where mod­ern hand­made meets sus­tain­able design. On my web­site, I spot­light the best in inde­pen­dent design­ers & artists, eco-friendly and sus­tain­able prod­ucts, New Orleans & Gulf Coast based busi­nesses and issues, and peo­ple & orga­ni­za­tions who are work­ing to make the world a bet­ter place.

“My own cre­ations reflect those same prin­ci­pals. I began sell­ing my cre­ations under the name “dis­man­tled designs” in 2004, after arriv­ing home from a study abroad pro­gram in Lon­don where I saw the amaz­ing artists at Por­to­bello Mar­ket and where I was inspired to begin sell­ing my own recon­structed cloth­ing & accessories.

My designs are all one-of-a-kind, hand­made and orig­i­nal. Most are made from used or vin­tage cloth­ing, or rem­nant fab­rics and trims. Each piece is meant to have a slightly unfin­ished, rough-hewn, well-loved look about it. I hope you enjoy!”

Shop­ping at Miss Mala­prop is a com­plete snap, as every­thing is so neatly cat­e­go­rized on the left all at extremely low, unbeat­able prices!!

The exten­sive lineup of prod­ucts include:

  • Gifts
  • Acces­sories
  • Bath & Beauty
  • Cloth­ing
  • Home & Decor
  • Jew­elry
  • Make It
  • Paper
  • Fair Trade
  • Hand­made
  • Organic
  • Recy­cled
  • Miss Mala­prop is defi­nately your one-stop shop for all of your eco-friendly and eco-chic prod­ucts! I was sent some of her mag­ni­fi­cient Pra­lines and Cream Soap — Milk Soap with Pointe Coupee Pecans and it is BEYOND heav­enly! The smell is divine and sen­sual — smell the won­der­ful relax­ing aroma and just let your senses guide you!

    CoolCanucks Blog Contest – tazzyTotes™ Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

    Saturday, May 29th, 2010

    tazzy

     

    Because reusable bags only reduce waste when you use them, they made it light weight, so it’s easy to keep with you for an unex­pected errand!

    tazzy­Totes™ bags rock!!

    tazzy­Totes™ was born from a desire to do the right thing while at the same time, get­ting rid of all the plas­tic bags! These eco friendly gro­cery pro­duce tote bags are made of com­pact poly­ester mesh and are 100% recyclable!

    I love these lit­tle pro­duce bags! No more need to use all of those plas­tic bags from the gro­cery store that are hor­ri­ble for our environment!

    There is one sim­ple action we can all take that will have an enor­mous impact on the health of our planet and its inhab­i­tants. The next time you shop, don’t leave the store car­ry­ing a plas­tic bag. If every­one did this, one of the most lethal pol­luters cre­ated by man would be removed from circulation.

    Con­sider the Fol­low­ing Shock­ing Facts About Plas­tic Shop­ping Bags:

    • Plas­tic bags are made of polyethylene
    • Poly­eth­yl­ene is a petro­leum product
    • Pro­duc­tion con­tributes to air pol­lu­tion and energy consumption
    • Four to five tril­lion plas­tic bags are man­u­fac­tured each year
    • Amer­i­cans use over 380 bil­lion poly­eth­yl­ene bags per year
    • Amer­i­cans throw away approx­i­mately 100 bil­lion poly­eth­yl­ene bags per year
    • Of those 100 tril­lion plas­tic bags, 1% are recycled
    • It takes 1000 years for poly­eth­yl­ene bags to break down
    • As poly­eth­yl­ene breaks down, toxic sub­stances leach into the soil and enter the food chain
    • Approx­i­mately 1 bil­lion seabirds and mam­mals die per year by ingest­ing plas­tic bags
    • Plas­tic bags are often mis­taken as food by marine mam­mals. 100,000 marine mam­mals die yearly by eat­ing plas­tic bags.
    • These ani­mals suf­fer a painful death, the plas­tic wraps around their intestines or they choke to death
    • Plas­tic bag choke landfills
    • Plas­tic bags are car­ried by the wind into forests, ponds, rivers, and lakes

     

    tazzy­Totes™ are not only eco-friendly, they are eco-chic to boot! What more could one ask for?

     

    You can win a set of pro­duce bags thanks to the very kind and gen­er­ous folks over at tazzy­Totes™! One very lucky Cool­Canucks reader will win a set of these phe­nom­e­nal pro­duce bags which includes 3 large pro­duce bags, 1 small pro­duce bag, and one Go-Green Marker! SWEET!!
