And the winner is…

Thanks to everyone who entered in my Blogiversary Giveaway – Part 1. Be sure to tune in on Sunday for the announcement of Part 2. I was encouraged to read all of the ways we lead green lives and even got a couple new ideas from readers.

I know you’re all anxious to find out who the two winners are, but first I’d like to share some of the ways readers are living green lives in case you didn’t have time to read through all the comments.

– Many of us are using the reusable grocery bags when shopping. I know at the grocery stores here in Boston, you get a discount (5 cents per bag) off your bill to which is nice. At Trader Joes, you get to enter your name into a drawing for a $25 gift card, so watch out for that too.

– Most people are also using reusable water bottle instead of buying bottled water.


– Most of us are recycling with some readers going to great lengths to be sure their recycleables are properly recycled. Nice work guys!


– A few of the readers mentioned compost piles. If you’d like to learn about worm composting, check out this post from Scott


– Cleaning products are another way readers have gone green. I haven’t done much in that regard. I did find this post about it, but if anyone has tips, let me know.

And now, on to the results. I used to generate two numbers between 1 and 84. And the winners are…

YogaGracie and jesstyler (who took advantage of getting a second entry by making the chickpea salad from my blog, which is the entry that won for her!). I’ll contact you asking for your shipping information and to confirm your selection from Bright and Bold.

If you didn’t win, don’t give up just yet. I’ll be announcing another giveaway on Sunday AND lovely people at Bright and Bold found out about my giveaway and have offered you, my readers,

15% off anything in the store until August 28th !!

Use code BEANTOWN when checking out. And they have free ground shipping with NO minimum! So go buy that cute lunch bag you were hoping to win.

    You know, I finally saw the cookie episode you keep mentioning last night. I caught it on right before bed! 🙂 It made me think of you.

    Congratulations to Rachel!! And I would be sad that I didn’t win, but the day after I read your post I found the book at Costco and bought it! Couldn’t help myself. I had even told my husband about it knowing he would get it for Christmas or my birthday…but couldn’t wait.

    And it is even more wonderful than I thought it would be! Thank you for the heads up. I don’t know what rock I had been living under, but I hadn’t even HEARD about this book until you posted about it!

    And I am already anticipating volume two and three!

    hehe – I just sent you an email! So excited to win something!!!
    And yes Julie – I taped the cookie episode yesterday too. I always use the “Mrs. Fields/ Nieman Marcus $250 cookie recipe” but I will have to try Alton’s now that I have his book. =)

    Thank you!!!!!!!

    Yes, My DVR caught the chocolate chip cookie episode too. I can’t wait to watch it again.

    I’m planning on reading this cookbook like a novel, front to back. There’s so much good info in it.
