Style Days of Christmas: SodaStream Source Giveaway

STYLEDAYS OF CHRISTMAS 5 (1)

A few months ago I got my hands on a SodaStream machine, and it changed my life. Ok, maybe it didn’t really change my life, but it certainly changed the way le bf and I consume soft drinks and host. We no longer buy sparkling water and pop – both of those are easily made at home, using less sugar, and wasting less bottles. Entertaining is now a breeze – with fun cocktail mixes at the ready, I am able to whip up a killer mojito in no time. And it sure looks damn sleek on our kitchen counter!

In June I also proclaimed that a SodaStream machine would make a perfect gift for anyone and for any occasion, and I still stand by that statement. It’s one of those things that you never knew you needed, but once you get your hands on one – you will wonder how you ever lived without it. It’s that good. So, because I love this product so much and want you to experience the SodaStream life (to hydrate, enjoy yummy cocktails, or drink guilt-free soda), I partnered up with SodaStream Canada to give away an amazing gift pack (valued at $202), which includes the following:

- SodaStream Source machine
- Ocean Spray syrups (Cranberry, Cranberry Raspberry, and Cranberry)
- Cola and Diet Cola syrups
- Orange and Grapefruit syrups

SodaStream contains 2/3 less sugar and 1/3 less calories than regular soda

SodaStream encourages kids to experiment with flavours by challenging them to mix different SodaStream syrups and make their own creations

SodaStream Source is the perfect kitchen accessory for hosting cocktail parties with friends

SodaStream allows you to get creative at home and customize drinks to suit all their friends or families’ individual tastes

H&M’s New Discounts for Recycled Clothes Initiative

h&m-discounts-recycling

Need another reason to love H&M? Here’s a big one! Starting February 2013, H&M stores worldwide will be introducing the new garment collecting initiative. Each store will be equipped with an I:Collect bin, and for each piece (or bag) of clothing recycled (no matter the condition), customers will be given $5 vouchers to spend on their next purchase of $30 or more. In turn, I:Collect will collect the garments, and reprocess them into new clothes. Easy, and good for the environment. It’s a win-win in my books.

“Every year, tons of textiles are thrown out with domestic waste and end up in landfill. As much as 95% of these clothes could be used again; re-worn, reused or recycled — depending on the state of the garment. Long-term, H&M wants to reduce the environmental impact of garments throughout the lifecycle and create a closed loop for textile fibers.”

Will you be taking advantage of this new environmentally-friendly initiative? I know I will.
