Holiday Giveaway #6: Truly-Life Eco-Friendly Gifts
Today we’re featuring Truly-Life for our Eight Days of Del Ray Holiday Giveaway. We’ve partnered with several members of the Del Ray Business Association to offer giveaways to our readers throughout the month of December. Keep reading to find out how to enter!
Truly-Life is a sustainable business, based out of Mellenie Runion and her partner Andy’s Del Ray home. Together they produce eco-friendly soaps and gifts, many with ingredients grown in their backyard garden.
We first met Mellenie a couple of years ago when she gave us an early Spring tour of her garden. One of the most interesting things we learned is that the sponge-like cleaning tool loofah doesn’t come from the sea, it’s actually a dried out fruit, similar to a cucumber.
Mellenie grows loofah in her garden — they are quite incredible by late summer.
Mellenie and Andy also grow a variety of vegetables, flowers and herbs. Trees line the perimeter of the yard, producing delicious fruit in season. Their yard supports their business, so they constantly strive to improve the soil and respect the environment through sustainable gardening.
The herbs and flowers give back — they are part of what makes her homemade soap and lotions smell so amazing.
For today’s giveaway, Mellenie is offering a spa gift set which includes a bar soap, soap-infused loofah, perfume, loofah with twine, massage lotion, lip balm and an herb sachet.
