Birthday Bash!

** Update:  this competition is now closed. Winners announced here. **

Unbelievably, it’s two years since Mother City Living came into being and started me down the road to good green living

Since that very first post, way back in August 2006, I have become ever more passionate about things organic, products made-by-hand, festivals packed with good food and wine – and what was a hobby is swiftly becoming an obsession (the healthy kind, thankfully… I think!).

In celebration of this milestone, I’m having a big birthday giveaway!

Thanks to my generous sponsors Faithful to Nature, Shared Earth Magazine and The Hot Box Co, I was able to put together some very nice prizes indeed:

1st Prize

Faithful to NatureA hamper from Faithful to Nature containing natural and organic products worth R1,000!

This heavenly hamper includes Trevarno’s Rose & Jojoba CleanserRosewater & Camomile Skin Toner, Day CreamOrganic Lavender & Geranium Soap,  and Rosehip & Cocoa-Butter Soap (mmmm…).

Faithful to Nature is my favourite source of natural and organic beauty products (seriously – that’s not just because of their generous prize!).  All of the products offered on their website are natural and earth-, people- and animal-friendly and don’t contain anything freaky like the ever-unpronounceable ‘Methylchlorpisothiazolinone‘.

2nd Prize

Shared Earth magazineThree 12-month subscriptions to Shared Earth Magazine worth R360 each.

Shared Earth Magazine hits the shelves for the first time on the 1st of November this year, and will offer readers monthly doses of practical ideas for self-sufficiency and sustainable living (I can’t wait to get my first copy!)

Shared Earth is all about sharing the latest information on alternative energy solutions, green building options, news on green transportation, tips and tricks for organic gardening and ever so much more.

3rd Prize

Hot BoxAn energy-saving Hot Box, the power-free cooker from The Hot Box Co, worth R250.

I raved about it not so long ago, and now I get to give one away!

The HOTBOX uses the principle of insulated cooking.  If you can keep the heat that is used to cook food, no replacement heat is necessary to complete the cooking process.

This kind of cooking is healthier, tastier, frees up your time, saves you money AND it allows you, as an individual, to make a significant contribution to the ensuing global effort to halt and reverse the rapid depletion of our resources.

Right, so if you wouldn’t mind getting your green paws on one of these fantabulous prizes, all you need to do is answer one easy question:

  • At which old mill is the weekly Neighbour Goods Market held?  (here’s a hint).

Submit your answer here.

And feel free to spread the word…

The competition closes on Tuesday the 16th of September 2008, and winners will be drawn from a hat (or similarly shaped containment unit) shortly thereafter.

Good luck y’all!

Oh, and here’s the fine print (‘cos everyone needs some of that): One entry per person, please. Competition closes at midday on Tuesday 16 September 2008;  the draw will take place the following day and winners will be notified via email (if you’re worried you won’t get the mail, include a cellphone number in your entry – I won’t use it for any evil purposes, I promise).  Prizes may not be exchanged for cash. No correspondence will be entered into (I’ve always wanted to write that!).  Prizes will be delivered to winners by my lovely sponsors.  Anyone can enter (except my family!) but prizes will only be delivered to addresses within South Africa.
