Happy Monday! Today, Triple B announces another happy giveaway winner. Jacqueline Royall of New York City is the recipient of those two awesome beauty products in the TAY skincare giveaway first mentioned a couple weeks back. Royall, who favors a diet full of organic fruits and veggies and void of meat is delighted with her Clean Orange Soap and Youthful Eye Treatment because she avoids products with sulfates and/or parabens. And just what was her winning response to the giveaway question about incorporating something green/eco-friendly into a wedding day you’re wondering? Check it out:
“I think an excellent way for someone to make their wedding day eco-friendly is by donating leftover reception food to City Harvest or a similar organization for the hungry and homeless. Or, a couple could ask their reception venue to compost as much trash from the event as possible,” shares Royall.
Sharing is indeed caring. I loved that her response suggested paying it forward. Join Triple B in congratulating Jacqueline Royall and stay tuned for more exciting giveaways on BlackBridalBliss.com in the near future.
