To close out Earth Week and celebrate the arrival of spring, we've teamed up with five other brands on a mission to cut waste by making goods from upcycled, recycled or otherwise "saved" materials. Enter the SPRING INTO ACTION GIVEAWAY for a chance to win over $600 of Earth-friendly goods.
Hosted by our friends at Project Juice, they're celebrating the launch of their new Ugly & Awesome juice. Ugly & Awesome is pressed from 99% cosmetically imperfect organic produce. With over 20 billion pounds of "ugly" produce discarded annually, this is a cause we think is amazing, and long overdue.
25% of fresh water in the US is used to produce food that never gets eaten, simply because it isn't pretty to look at, despite being perfectly edible. Because imperfect produce isn't sellable due to purely aesthetic appearances, many farms do not attempt to sell it, and simply throw it away. Product Juice is working to change that, cut down on food waste and support ugly produce distributors.

Update: A winner has been drawn — congrats to Michelle D!
