Summer’s drawing to a close and so is the Lifehack Great Big Summer Giveaway. The entries are all in, the tips are all blogged, posted, tweeted, and FriendFeeded, and I’m working my way through the drawings.
Here, then, are the winners of the contests from Week One of the Great Big Summer Giveaway. Remember, all winners were chosen by random drawing, not according to the quality of their entries.
Winner: Bon Temps
The aromahand aromatherapy pillow combines the power of human touch with the soothing properties of aromatherapy. Shaped like a hand, the aromahand is filled with lavender, sage, and other organic scents to fill you with calmness and serenity. Flaxseed stuffing gives it firmness and moldability, so you can place it where is most comfortable for you.
Made of tough but flexible plastic, the Banana Bunker can be easily shaped to protect any banana, keeping its precious banana-y goodness from being squished, squashed, or even smashed. Perfect for school lunchboxes as well as briefcases and purses, a Banana Bunker gives you piece of mind and perfect bananas, every time.
The Cool People Care Eco-Friendly Travel Mug is made of renewable corn plastic, not petroleum-based plastic, and comes with a bag of Higher Ground Fair Trade coffee. Not only does Fair Trade mean the people who grew and harvested the coffee beans were paid a decent, livable wage for their work (exploitation and even slavery are rampant in the coffee industry), but the makers of Higher Ground dedicate a portion of their proceeds to preserving the Appalachian Trail — and it tastes great.
dbclay produces wallets that even Picasso would be proud to carry — gorgeous, colorful, creative images printed onto practical wallets with 2 large money-sized pockets and 4 ID/credit card slots. And they’re made of “Tope”, a durable, heat- and cold-resistant, waterproof, nontoxic, PVC-free synthetic fabric, and printed with environmentally-friendly inks.
Each of the winners should already have received an email from me notifying them and putting them in touch with the sponsor for their prize(s). If your name appears above and you haven’t received an email from me yet, be sure to let me know at dustin at lifehack.org
Special thanks go to all our sponsors, who have been generous to a fault. This contest – and all the great tips it provoked – couldn’t have been possible without their support.
Winners from Week Two are forthcoming. Stay tuned!
