This month's winner is Heather Bartlett, from Littleton, Colorado. She'll receive the winter warm-up prize from our December 2008 issue, which includes a sweet, sustainable yak wool hat, scarf, and mitten set from top eco-designer Stewart+Brown. Plus an eight-pack of organic tea from Teatulia, and a stainless-steel Sigg hot and cold bottle.
I start feeling the urge to spring clean as soon as the snow begins to melt. One tradition we've started with our two little girls is the "giving box" we keep by our front door. Every time we bring a new item (such as clothing or a toy) into the house, we put an old item in the box. Once every couple of months, we donate the box of treasures to a local charity. This makes less clutter to clean out in the spring, while keeping us all connected to those around us.
