The International Princess Project doesn’t just make great loungewear. The California-based nonprofit also helps rebuild lives torn apart by sexual slavery. Handmade in an after-care facility in India, its “Punjammies” offer formerly trafficked women and girls a fresh start, a place to heal, and a new trade. Each woman receives a higher-than-fair wage, housing options, medical care, and where applicable, education for her children. Even better: 100 percent of the company’s proceeds are reinvested in the program, allowing more women and girls a chance at a new life. Want to be part of this narrative of hope? We’ve partnered with the International Princess Project to give away a full set of Punjammies—that is, a top and bottom of your choosing—to not one, but two lucky readers. Enter now to win!


1. SIGN UP FOR THE ECOUTERRE NEWSLETTER. (This is important because we’ll be announcing our winners there.)

2. LEAVE A COMMENT BY APRIL 28 and tell us how you’re ringing in spring. Although it doesn’t hurt to get fancy, we’ll be picking two winners at random.

Note: This contest is open only to residents of the United States and Canada.

Punjammies are loungewear made with hope by women in India who have escaped human trafficking. Whenever you purchase Punjammies, you invest in the freedom and dignity of these women and girls who are working to forge a new life for themselves and their children.
