Giveaway: Tee from Five Bamboo!

bamboo2

bamboo1


I'm really excited to bring you a giveaway from Five Bamboo, an environmentally-sustainable apparel company from Seattle. Unlike other bamboo apparel on the market, Five Bamboo produces their textiles without harmful gases, chemicals, and with virtually no waste. Along with being environmentally-sustainable, Five Bamboo is a small, local company and they've been genuinely fun and interesting to chat with.

They are offering one lucky reader the chance to win one of their v-neck tee shirts in the size and color of your choice, which would be a staple in any wardrobe. I can tell you from experience that the fabric is super-soft and sturdy. All you have to do is visit their website and leave a comment below. I'll pick a winner next Monday.

And good news: whether or not you win, you can get 20% off your first order with the code: whatwouldanerdwear, valid through the end of the month.

UPDATE: justine is the lucky winner!

Oh, bamboo stuff is so comfy! The glacial blue tee is such a pretty color. :)

Laura said...

I love that travel skirt!

I'm Caitlin and I work at Five Bamboo. Just a heads up, you need to create an online store account in order to use the coupon code. I hope you all like our products!

I'd like to enter the give away please ! I'd go for the black T : because it wouldn't change color I am sure as it seems to be great quality ( What is worse that a grey-ish-before-I was -a-black-T effect !).
They should do the dress in red pink : it would look stunning !

Oy, how is it that the Pacific NW has all the amazing clothing when we have to cover them in layers of waterproof outerwear! So sad...

Elle said...

love that tee and LOVE that it is a "green" clothing option! i think it's important to be a conscious consumer, which is one of the reasons that i like thrifting and companies like alternative apparel. even if i don't win, i'm glad you turned me on to five bamboo!

I've never heard of this company before, but I really like all of their offerings. I certainly hope to win the contest, but will probably make a purchase when my budget has recovered from my holiday travel.

I think I'd go for the raspberry red tee. :)

nfpfertilityhelp said...

I love the travel skirt! I had a similar one that I was able to wear before, during and after my pregnancy...so comfortable. Needless to say, after two kids, it should be retired and replaced.

Great giveaway!
I am very interested in trying out bamboo and seeing how it wears and feels in comparison to cotton, wool, and other fabrics I regularly wear.

Lizzy said...

love this stuff! can't believe its made of bamboo

Haley said...

The raspberry red looks like the perfect shade of slightly pink red.
The only bamboo fabrics I own are a tank top and socks but both have fared very well.
