When it comes to those hot summer days there isn’t anything better than packing up the family and heading to the beach! Especially now that we’re in snowy Colorado and completely landlocked, the beach is even MORE enticing than normal!
This is why we decided to do an Eco-Friendly Beach Giveaway! Being able to give a family eco-friendly goodies to take to the beach is key to creating a sustainable future for future generations. PLUS it helps save the earth by having products that can be used over and over again instead of being thrown away after one use!
Each of these companies is committed to helping create a world that reduces, reuses and recycles to rid the world of single use products. Each item has been chosen specifically for the positive impact of using materials that create a healthier more sustainable way of living and co-existing in the world.
These products are both healthy for you AND the planet! And of course- perfect for the beach!
Our greatest hope is that whoever wins this HUGE prize will gain years of enjoyment out of these top notch products that are made with love and care from companies doing big things in the world.

Summer is the founder of Butterbean, a mama-owned business located in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. She started making sunscreen for her 5 children when she learned about the harmful chemicals contained in many of the sunscreens available today.
She believes as parents, we are our children’s advocates. Helping them to be the best they can starts with what goes into and in this case on their bodies. Since the skin is the largest organ, she wanted a product that would be safe for her 10 year old down to her baby. The ingredients chosen are grown and processed with respect for people and the planet.
Butterbean is dedicated to providing chemical-free and effective products in a way that compliment both the people that use them and the environment that they are used in.

U-Konserve is the result of two mothers’ struggle to be environmentally conscious as their families grew. As they packed school lunches, they knew the plastic baggies, drink cartons and single-use containers leaving their homes were destined for landfill.
With this in mind, they created a waste-free lunch kit, and in 2008 U-Konserve was born. The desire was to have an impact beyond just creating durable, long-lasting products. The goal was to offer reusable and innovative solutions to change behavior and help the planet. That is the same goal that drives our mission today.
