Coolmax EcoMade giveaway!

I have some good, good, goodies for you today! Well, not all of you. Just one, actually. One lucky winner!

What are the goodies, you ask? Socks! And what runner or otherwise active person doesn't need more socks? Exactly. Well, thanks to Coolmax EcoMade, I have seven days of socks to give to one winner.



Coolmax EcoMade socks are -- ahem -- pretty cool. They are made from 97% recycled resources such as plastic bottles, which keeps a lot of plastic out of the landfills. Here's some information on the "bottle-to-sock" process:
The process for making COOLMAX® EcoMade socks begins with post-consumer bottles made of polyethylene terephthalate, or PET, being cleaned and converted into polymer flakes. The flakes are then converted into chips, melted and extruded into fiber designed to provide high-performance, permanent wicking benefits. This fiber is then spun into yarn for legwear.


Made with a 4-channel cross section for outstanding moisture movement, COOLMAX® EcoMade socks dry quickly, help keep the wearer cool and comfortable, maintain a natural feel that’s soft, lightweight and breathable, and are permanent and effective.
It's quite interesting, if you ask me. Light-weight wicking socks made from waste. What's more, Coolmax EcoMade has expanded into several well-known performance sock brands: DeFeet, Injinji, Dansko, Fox River and Sports Tuff.

Have a look at some of the socks:





Fun, right? Yup. Personally, I'd like to try out those Injinji socks but I any of the socks would be great because they seem like they would be good for me as a runner while also being good for the environment.

So, what about this giveaway, huh? OK, check it out:
