Green Gift Monday Giveaway: Cangles Fashionably Green Bracelet

Thanks to everyone who entered.  Congratulations to our winner, Kandace B!  More giveaways are coming throughout the holidays!

This month’s EcoMonday giveaway falls on Green Gift Monday – a day where we channel our holiday spending dollars into sustainable gifts made by companies who are making a difference in the world.

We look for gifts that are made from recycled components or organic materials.  Even better – we look for gifts that aren’t “things” at all, like experience gifts or gifts of service.

This week, we’re celebrating Green Gift Monday with a fun, eco-friendly Cangles woven bracelet giveaway.

Meet Cangles Fashionably Green Jewelry

The inspiration for Cangles struck during a family drive through the neighborhood the owners’ family had lived for three generations.  They described it as heart breaking, seeing a once thriving community now drowning in poverty and trash.  Even things as easily recycled as aluminum cans littered the area.  They were determined to do something to help, AND make a statement along the way.

They instantly thought up jewelry made from the old cans.  From the words “can” and “bangle” bracelet, Cangles were born.  Along the way, they’ve created a successful business that now makes much more than just bracelets and that also gives back to organizations like The Wounded Warrior Project and Ronald McDonald House.  All of their items are made in the USA.

A Unique, Recycled Bracelet

I didn’t expect the bracelet to look so high-end, but it does.  If I still worked in the corporate world, this is the kind of thing all the gals would have passed around oohing and aahing.  The magnet closure is strong, so you can put it on in no time.  And I really care about the way a product is shipped… this one came in a small box (no bigger than necessary) with what looked like shredded office paper that had already been used.  Super eco-friendly!

I’m excited for you to have the chance to win this.  If you’re not into jewelry, it makes a great green stocking stuffer for women of any age (little girls too!)

The contest goes from now until Monday, Dec. 5th.  One step to win involves checking out Cangles.com and telling us which piece of jewelry you like best.  They have everything from earrings to necklaces to hair accessories.
