A Novel way to Give

As we come into the giving season, one of our favorite online market places, cosa verde has caught the spirit. Now through the first ten days of December you can enter to win great green handmade goods, not for yourself, but for those you deem worthy in your life.

Give it Forward this holiday enters a friend or loved one in a chance to win handcrafted gifts by cosa verde artists. A new contest with new gifts will be posted each day on the cosa verde blog. You are invited to enter to win each gift not for yourself, but for a friend or loved one who you think could use a little pick-me-up. Comment on the blog post telling them who you’d like to win the item for and why they deserve a surprise, and cosa verde will randomly select winners for each gift and mail them directly to your loved one with a note about how you had them in mind this holiday!

There are thirty different gifts—totaling over $1000—that are being given away. So check out their blog each day and Give if Forward. ‘Tis the season.

    A creative, green spin off from “pay it forward”! All the items are so beautiful. Anyone would surely be happy to receive that upcycled bicycle tire belt!
