There are just 2 more days until our Instagram Giveaway closes, so if you haven’t already entered, it’s not too late!
As a business starting fresh, we wanted to shed some light on why we chose these brands as a part of the ultimate prize.
#1 – Bringing you Outdoors
In all honesty, being environmentally aware has been at the forefront of our lives for years. We are not perfect, but we strive to be better, and part of this means through our business as well.
For the both of us, the passion for the outdoors started back in high school. We were both a part of our respective high school outdoor clubs, which taught us how to be respectful to nature.
MEC, ever since, has been our go-to place for fuelling our thirst for adventure.
While the giveaway is not sponsored by MEC, we wanted to include this as a prize to pay it forward.
We hope that the winner will have the opportunity to purchase something that makes their 2020 adventure extra special and fun!
#2 – A Vacation inside your Home
Along with a prize that sparks adventure, we also wanted to include something that brings the winner closer to a vacation, at the comfort of their own home! What better way to accomplish this than a tropical scented candle?
We first heard about Mala the Brand when they started out, and we not only love the scents, but also the high-quality and environmentally friendly ingredients they use.
Their candles are made with soy wax, wood wicks, and phthalate-free fragrance oils and essential oils. All that goodness, lovingly poured into these reusable tin containers.
But that’s not the best part! For every candle purchased, a tree is planted.
Can you guess how many trees have been planted since?
Now that is truly impressive!
#3 – Preserve your Memories
The beautiful thing about photography is that, at the core, it is a means for preservation.
Preservation of fleeting moments, milestones, and our ever-changing identities.
Have you ever discovered an old photograph, whether in an old shoe box, or when social media sends reminders?
Looking at photographs is comforting, nostalgic, and exciting, all in one. It allows us to relive moments and brings it back in vivid detail.
Without sounding biased (this will be hard), photography is a perfect gift to yourself or to others.
We hope it is a gift for the winner as well!
