(Aren’t these Coyuchi towels so pretty in my gold and white and black bathroom? I love layering towels at home—it feels so luxurious. Here I paired the Coyuchi with my black washcloth and a Turkish Pastemental striped towel.)

It’s giveaway time! And this is a GREAT one. You can win one of Coyuchi‘s new organic cotton Air Weight towels. The “air-weight” means they dry faster on the rack, and faster in the dryer—or on your line. These towels are the first certified Fair Trade towels and they’re also GOTS certified. Fair Trade certification for Apparel & Home Goods is the first social, economic and environmental standard that directly benefits the workers who sew the items. For every Fair Trade Certified product sold, a percentage is paid directly to a special workers’ fund.

Coyuchi was the first company to bring organic cotton bedding to the US, and now they’ve added to their home goods. These towels are soft and come in a huge variety of (nontoxically dyed, natch) colors, and are free of other toxic bleaches and finishes too. A rolled self-hem helps them hold their shape wash after wash.

That’s just the FIRST HALF of the giveaway. The second part is these truly awesome cleaning implements by Zabada.


The Bathroom Handy looks like a weird giant sponge you clean with—but here’s the deal: You clean with only the Handy and water. No soaps, chemicals, sprays or….anything. I KNOW it sounds crazy. But I just cleaned my bathroom with this thing, and it works. It got soap scum out of my shower, toothpaste and other ickies off my sink, and even mold from shower-corners. It’s legit for cleaning, and you need nothing but water to do the job. And, according to Zabada, it removes bacteria too (see video below), eliminating 99.9% of it.

After you’ve cleaned with the Handy, you dry surfaces off with the Zabada Bathroom Marvel (bacteria can’t thrive in a dry environment). It dries and shines surfaces and fittings (mine are seriously shinier than they have been since I moved into my current apartment), and leaves a streak-free and lint-free finish. I’ll never need paper towels again.

This giveaway includes one each (a $60 value) of the Zabada Bathroom Handy and the Marvel.


Giveaway Rules and Directions: 

One lucky winner will receive: 1 organic cotton Coyuchi bath towel in white ($48.00 value), and 1 Bathroom Handy and 1 Bathroom Marvel from Zabada ($60.00 value).

Giveaway is open to US residents only.

Giveaway is open from 3/6/15 at midnight EST to 3/13/15 at midnight EST. To enter, comment about what your fave type of tub is (mine is the classic clawfoot!). Be sure to use your best email address (so we can contact you if you win) on the comment sign-up. No, we won’t be sharing or selling your email address, so don’t worry!

Good luck!
