I received free products from prAna and Avocado Green Mattress to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own.
I never know what to ask for as a Christmas gift. I usually just shrug and daydream about having a quiet day off somewhere. But there are things that I could use and enjoy getting. If you’re shopping for someone on your list who likes to go green, the two brands I’m going to share with you today would be a great fit. (And actually, both have items for dads, too). Plus, I’ll have discount codes for you to help with your holiday shopping.
First up is prAna. prAna clothing is great for any sort of adventure you may go on (or just hanging out, no judgement here). Though when they make their clothing, it is mindfully made in order to support fair trade and sustainable practices. When shopping on the prAna site, you’ll find sustainable, recycled, fair trade certified and hemp items.
The Rockaway Jacket is made with 50% recycled materials. It’s super soft and I really like the flattering cut which seems to create a slimmer waistline. It was surprisingly warm given that it’s not very thick. I wore it to my sons’ cross country meet this weekend and had brought an additional jacket thinking I might need something warmer, but this did the job with temps in the 50s.
I wear a lot of leggings, so I thought I’d branch out slightly and try the Juniper Pant, which are still a performance style of pants, but with a flared leg instead of fitted all the way down. They are made of 53% Hemp, 42% Organic Cotton, and 5% Spandex. Again, vey comfortable. I wear a size medium in both of these items, in case you’re wondering about fit.
prAna offers a variety of clothing: dresses, sweaters, jackets, pants, and even mens wear, in addition to the more athletic looks that I tend to gravitate towards. You can use code APF17TS to get 15% off your prAna order.
Next up is something my husband and I always want, holidays or not. And that is a good pillow. We’ve often bought pillows for each other as presents, constantly trying to find ones we like.
We spend about a third of our lives in bed, so it’s important to be comfortable. Avocado Green Mattress makes non-toxic, eco-friendly mattresses and pillows that are better for your health and the planet. They are made from natural and organic materials including 100% natural Dunlop latex (tree-tapped, similar to maple syrup), natural wool, and organic cotton.
With Avocado Green, there are no petroleum-based polyurethane foams to break down, no memory foams to off-gas, no chemical adhesives between the comfort layers to emit chemical odors, and no chemical flame retardants to endanger your health.
All great when you’re trying to detoxify your air and home. Though, bottomline: these are some quality pillows, some of the best that I’ve tried. I like them so much that I didn’t tell my husband that I got two new pillows because I don’t want to have to share one of these. Maybe I’ll get him his own for Christmas…
You can get 20% off Avocado Green pillows with code ThingsICantSay20 now through 12/31/17.
