EDIT_IMG_5346 I've teamed up with the sustainable marketplace EcoHabitude for a sponsored giveaway! Support EcoCult and get a little something something for yourself.  One of the reasons why I started EcoCult was because I love discovering and sharing stuff. I'm always recommending restaurants to my friends, haranguing them to check out a brand, or come to a party I love. The process of discovery is one of life's great pleasures, at least for me, and running a blog gives me license to do it every day as a job. EcoHabitude feeds that need for new in me. It's a marketplace for sustainable fashion, beauty, food, and home objects, all of them emerging brands. I'll often go there when I'm seeking something specific and want to look at a lot of options: bathing suits, say, or nail polish remover. And I'll always find a few cool things to covet. EcoHabitude wants to let you in on that sense of discovery, by giving away a box of non-toxic goodies from two small but cute  brands that are both vegan and handmade: Herbs + Oils Bath and Zandra. The gift set comes with sea salt hair mist, a minty artisan soap bar, a gentle hydration mask, exfoliating sugar scrub, citrus-y lip balm, and a small, pretty bowl perfect for putting your rings and earrings in, just for good measure.
