Giveaway! Sprout Wellness Award Winning All-Over Cream!

topics: Giveaway
by Kristen Suzanne

It’s giveaway time on Green Mommy Blog and I’m stoked to have the opportunity to offer you the chance to win one of my all-time favorite body creams – Sprout Wellness’ Award Winning All-Over Cream. (Thank you for sponsoring this, Sprout Wellness!) I’ll be selecting one winner (details on how to participate are below).

I wrote about my love of their products here – be sure to check it out! Ever since I first tried this product, I’ve been hooked. I have a jar in my bathroom (I share it with Kamea) and a jar on my desk. It’s divine!

And, here is some great information about the product from their website…

Ever had this experience before? “Man, my skin feels dry. I need some moisturizer.” {Apply moisturizer.} {One minute goes by.} “Man, my skin feels dry. I need some moisturizer.”

Ya, that’s not supposed to happen. Many moisturizers are made with water as a base, which evaporates quickly from the skin, leaving you as dry (or drier) than before! Sprout’s All-Over Cream isn’t, obviously. It’s designed to actually moisturize your skin, so you don’t have to keep using it every three minutes.

Our ingredients:

-wildcrafted, fair-trade shea butter
-organic extra-virgin coconut oil
-organic extra-virgin olive oil

What it does for you:

-natural SPF of 6
-anti-inflammatory
-high in anti-oxidants
-aids in skin cell regeneration
-promotes skin elasticity
-treats blemishes, skin discolorations, chapped lips, wrinkles, rashes, stretch marks, and sun spots

Want the chance to win? Simply answer the question below by commenting in this blog post’s comment section. Entries will be accepted until February 21st, 2011 at 11:59pm. I will randomly draw one name and announce the winner on Green Mommy Blog February 22nd by responding to the winner’s comment in the comment section below. *Please note: this giveaway is open to U.S. participants only.

Question: What things are you doing (or have done – or plan to do) to be a “green” mommy?

    We recycle everything we possibly can. My son loves to seperate it out into the bins he and I decorated with cut up magazines/newspapers. We also use eco friendly cleaning products for our home as well as buying as much food organic as we possibly can. And we love our local farmers market in the summer time!

    I LOVE Sprout Wellness! And I LOVE being a GREEN mommy! My son is a little older now…I just got him off his training wheels so that we can drive less and exercise more together. Getting him involved in our organic garden has really piqued his interest in food–he'll only eat beans out of our garden! He's turning into quite the (organic, healthy) foodie! I also recently switched from store-bought green cleaners to making my own from simple ingredients like baking sode and vinegar. I feel SO much better when he drops food on the floor and then picks it up to eat it…kids will be kids, but making the house healthy is our job!

  • Veronica

    Planning to get pregnant this Fall! I am preparing to be a green mommy by being vegan, using cloth diapers and I plan to make my own baby food. :)

  • vbraselton

    With having my first baby in August I really started researching and implementing ways to become more green. My husband and I purchased cloth diapers, which we air dry instead of using the dryer. I have joined a fruit/vege co-op to get organic food from local farmers and home make my baby food. We extensively recycle everything we can. We use a brita filter instead of purchasing bottled water. All of our baby's clothes (except 3 outfits) were either given to us second hand by friends or bought second hand a children's used clothes store. Last but not least we made several major improvements in our home to make our home more energy efficient to include a new air conditioner, new windows and heat blocking drapes (we live in Arizona). I know I still have a long way to go, but it feels good to get started on being green.

    We cloth diaper, try to buy organic or used clothing, eat vegetarian/mostly homecooked, shop farmers markets & get to know our farmers and their produce. We talk about where food comes from, and why we make the choices we do. We use natural cleaning products in the home and are mostly fragrance free outside of essential oils. I'm sure there are other things as well.

    When my son, Jake, was a baby I made homemade baby food and breastfed. Now that he's four, we walk to school and I carpool with another Mom to the grocery store (where we use our own bags). I'm in the market for a new car and plan to “go green” this time!

I just recently found out I'm pregnant (and have yet to announce it to everyone) so I'm only getting started on this path, but this cream would certainly help as we grow together while keeping our health and environment green as can be :) Looking forward to reposting for more chances to win, but I must wait until it's official.

    I let my twins eat as much raw food as they want to eat, we only buy clothes second hand or organic and we are planting a lot of edible food in our garden and buy only organic.

    I am a 100% raw vegan but my kids are not. They are nearly 5 and they don't want it. I hope I am a good rolemodel. At home they are pretty much raw but with friends and kindergarten…that's not so easy at all.

    Sprout wellness looks divine…I'm going to head over & give this a try. Our WI winter has been so hard on my skin – this is just what I need!

    GREEN = hmmm…where to start, honestly we are always trying coming up with more ways to live 'more' green! Nursed for 2+ yrs, re-cycled & “up-cycled” clothes & toys. Eat & Shop locally when possible + reuseable bags & snack containers & when you ask our daughter this question she will say “you can tell we're green because we start EVERYDAY with a GREEN SMOOTHIE” (; Thanks Kristen! xo

  • rawesome goddess

    i enjoy massaging essential oils on my baby!

  • CrunchyMamaLife

    we cloth diaper, make most of our homemade babyfood and nutmilk, buy in bulk where we can, keep our our heat low in the winter (oh how I shiver) and ac high in the summer, eat out rarely, buy from Farmer's Market as much as possible, and avoid most processed foods like the plague! I'm sure there are some other things, but to this foggy mama brain, those are what I can think of now… :-)

    The cream looks so wonderful! I have nice dry, crackly skin and am always on the search for the really moisturizing, but really good for you, cream.

    I'm about to have my 2nd baby any day now. Our contribution to being green has been trying to shop locally as much as possible, reusing and reducing “trash” as much as possible, and going vegan. :) I just bought the baby bullet so that I can make homemade baby food when the time comes. We also LOOOOOVE our green smoothies everyday.

    We cloth diaper, use cloth wipes and cloth napkins instead of going through a million rolls of paper towels cleaning up stuff all day. We shop locally for produce and we're a vegetarian (almost vegan) family. We also compost our food waste and our recycling pile is always as big as our garbage pile each week!

  • Kate

    I am expecting my first baby at the end of this month, which brought with it lots of new plans to be greener. I have a nice stash of cloth diapers and reusable wipes now. I stocked up on baby clothes from second-hand stores and firends who are all done having babes. The new onesies and things I bought are organic, and instead of buying shirts with designs on them I made my own designs from old clothes that are ruined, etc. and am sewing them onto his plain tops. I have a bundle of recipes ready for my Vitamixer also for when he starts eating baby food in the summer.

  • Audrey

    I am researching my options with cloth diapering and reusable wipes. I also plan on making my own baby food this time around, which I did not do with my first two. I am also doing research on organic mattresses, bedding and clothing for baby.

    I'm not a mother yet, but I'm practicing! My roommate just had a healthy little boy three months ago and I've helped her look for all-nautral, organic, recycled (when appropriate, like some items of baby clothes) products that will help nurture him instead of slather him in toxins. I had no idea that the baby industry was so full of pressure on moms to buy all these things they don't need — and it's easy for a new mother to feel overwhelmed that she isn't making the best choices for her baby based on media frenzy. Yuck!

  • Defiant Kitty aka (Annette)

    What I've done to be a green mommy ( Is changed my hair dye to a chemical free veg one), I changed all my cleansers in the home to 7th Generation, I purchased a To Go Ware kit for my lunch for work, I've been eating raw most of the days for the past month 1/2. Last but not least I stopped buying bottled water and I bought a filtering system container for my apt.

    Just wanted to say I love your blog I don't always comment but I read what you have to say and I'm happy that I found you.

    Hugs and blessings,

    What I have done to be a green mommy—my last baby has been breastfed for 13 months and still going strong! Also, I have made most of his baby food at home, saving waste from entering the landfills. I use organic fruits and veggies for his (and for my older two children) food. And I didn't have to buy a lot of baby gear and supplies this time around. I've used the same crib, carseat, stroller, pack and play, and clothes for all three children.

    My kids are all grown and out of the house now, but we made our own baby food with a grinder & froze it in large cube ice cube trays. I'd pop out what was needed and never had to worry about what went into my childrens food and had less waste going into the landfills (those little glass jars).

  • Melissa

    I breastfeed my little girl. I use cloth diapers and soon will start with cloth wipes. I use glass containers in lieu of plastic. I plan on making my own baby food at home when she begins solids. I eat organic at all chances possible. I bought an organic mattress and bedding set for my little girl. I wear my baby.

    As natural and down to earth as being green seems, sometimes it's not easy ;) . When you live out on a farm, washing and drying your clothes on a line fits in the natural rhythm of life. But when you live in a city, you have to save the dirty cloth diapers in a diaper bag, and haul them from daycare to home to wash them for the next day. I managed to keep the kids in cloth diapers for about a year before I folded for the convenience factor.
    I used to take the bus to work, but after #2 was born, I had to get a car because the bus didn't pass by the daycare house. Such a shame that as I want to get closer to the earth, I'm pulled in the opposite direction by practicality and exhaustion. It ain't easy being green when you are stretched so thin. We still live in a society where it does take a level of prep and planning. There are some things I've managed to keep it real on: like buying all local foods from a coop op and cooking all our meals from scratch. We use reusable containers, straws, and snack baggies. Our cars are super efficient. Any time I plan on making a purchase I always check craigslist to see if the item might be available used. You'll be surprised the odd things people offer.

  • Njnear1

    When my first daughter was born almost four years ago, I started realizing the importance of converting to a more “green” lifestyle. We use Lunchskins for snack bags, I only use vinegar with essential oils and castile soap for cleaning, we use natural shampoos and conditioners and soaps for bathing and I purchase as much as I can secondhand. We also try to eat as much organic as possible and have big plans for our own garden this summer.

    I'm a crunchy California mom – living in CA really helps, as I can grow my own organic food year round & there are organic farmer's markets year round, as well. Lately, our family has learned how to wildcraft edible mushrooms ethically & safely – it's a fun way to get some exercise & appreciate mother nature. I'm also a rep for Miessence certified organics, educating others on the importance of living without harmful chemicals and unsustainable synthetic ingredients.

  • Lalamurphy

    I plan to make all my own baby food from scratch and feed my child fresh juices. For example, if I want them to have apple juice, i'll make a green juice + apple juice blend so they don't get use to things overly sweet. (plus I want them to get a lot of greens even at a young age!)

  • Stephanie Moram

    We use hemp diapers, and I make my own wipes with hemp cloths which after washing I alway air dry and fluff in the dryer for 5 minutes.I use an organic baby wearing wrap, have an organic nursing pillow, organic changing pad, organic baby clothing and second hand clothing, breastfeed my little one, organic baby bedding,keep chemicals out of the house (clean with vinegar and water only), don't use plastics for storing food (glass), eat a 100% organic/or local diet unless out and about and its not available, walk as much as I can, have a countertop filter for water, turn my lights off when not using them, unplug appliances when not using them as well, buy things that have the least amount of packaging and try to buy USA made as much as possible, and I only put things on my body that I would feel safe to eat and the list continues….:) Have a “GREEN” day everyone!

    I breast fed my two girls for no less than 48 months, I made all their baby food and continue to cook from scratch. My eldest is in school and I make all her “treats” from scratch so that she continues to have a taste for real foods. I clean with vinegar, phosphate free dish soap and oil of oregano: my foods, counter tops, bathrooms, etc. I buy and accept used clothing, toys and talk with my girls about buying plastic. We talk openly to our girls about Mother Nature and how we need to protect her by making going back to the basics and keeping things simple. Best of health to All!
