Review and Giveaway: Green Ostrich: TerraCycle Skittles Upcycled Portable MP3 Speakers- 1 Winner- US Only- Ends 2/10

For my review from Green Ostrich I received the most awesome speakers! I absolutely love them!
Green Ostrich offers the best Green Gifts around. They have a huge selection of Green Gifts for men, women, children and for the holidays!

For my review from Green Ostrich I received these awesome TerraCycle Skittles Upcycled Portable MP3 Speakers. These speakers are so unique! When I first recieved my package I was like, "How did those speakers fit in this package?" I was confused because the box was so small! When I opened it I found out though, the speakers actually fold down, and you can simply fold them up to make the speakers! So cool, right?!

The main reason I chose these speakers was because, I love Skittles! What a great way to show my love of Skittles! I really cannot get over how amazing these little speakers are! They have a spot where my Ipod can fit right into, and let me tell you, the sound is so loud! Well, if you make it loud. I used to have a pair of speakers, and the quality was not that great. The  speakers I had before just had no power to them at all.  Well thats not the case here; My music comes out in a great quality, and it gets loud enough so I can hear, and sing in the shower :)

About the speakers and TerraCycle straight from the Green Ostrich Website:
"TerraCycle has created upcycled, battery-free, portable eco-speakers out of excess, unwanted Skittles packaging. The speakers come with a 3.5mm Universal Plug for your iPod, iPhone, MP3 player, CD Player, laptop computer, etc. The speakers are made with up to 80% recycled materials and packaged with sustainability and conservation in mind.
TerraCycle is in the business of Upcycling, making affordable, eco-friendly products from a wide range of different non-recyclable waste materials. The process of upcycling converts useless products or disposed-of waste into new products of better quality or or higher environmental value. TerraCycle takes previously utilized printed circuit boards, juice pouches, candy wrappers, vinyl records and more and turns them into clocks, MP3 speakers, backpacks and picture frames."

Overall these speakers are amazing! Especially if you consider that they are made with the simpleist materials. If you are looking for high quality speakers that you can really jam out to, then I really recommend the TerraCycle Skittles Upcycled Portable MP3 Speakers.

Not a Skittle lover like me? Don't worry! They have M&M Speakers too!


Green Ostrich has so much more then speakers too! They have the ultimate Green Gifts Selection! If your trying to do your small part for the world then I would really consider one of the Green Gifts from Green Ostrich!

Here are a couple of my absolute favorites!
The 9-Piece Preserve Recycled Plastic Baking Set

and the Eco Stapler (Available for less then $5.00, and uses NO STAPLES! Whoa!

Those are just a couple of the amazing Green Gifts available from the Green Ostrich.

I really recommend checking out Green Ostrich for all of your Green Gift needs!
