Fight cancer by supporting a local Relay for Life team fundraiser

Back To Front Page

The Duneland community is ready to celebrate, remember, and fight back against cancer and teams are working hard to raise funds to help in the fight against cancer.

Chesterton Tribune for a Cure, a team for this year’s American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life of Duneland, will be holding a fundraiser in conjunction with Green Housewives Bath Company, a locally owned company based on the philosophy “Be green while saving green.”

From June 24 through July 8, Green Housewives Bath Company will donate 20% of all purchases made to the Relay for Life of Duneland to fight cancer.

Owners Christine Sierazy and Krystal Markwart, both Duneland natives, started their company to make natural and organic bath and body products affordable to everyone. Their products are hand made, with all natural and organic ingredients, out of their kitchens in small batches to ensure freshness and quality, and do not contain broad spectrum preservatives. The eco-friendly packaging, from truffle boxes made of grass to glass canning jars, can be composted, recycled or upcycled.

Green Housewives Bath Company sells dozens of different items from novelty bath and body to wellness products that combat eczema, as well as cloth diaper safe bottom cream. They make goods for the entire family, including lotion bars, bath bombs, shower steamers, deodorants, tooth powders, headache balm, coffee scrubs, bath salt, sunblock, healing ointment and bug spray. New products are added to their lineup regularly, the newest being hand spun wool dryer balls.

The blossoming 6-month old company has committed to giving back to the community and has already donated 5 baskets to different functions throughout Duneland and recently raised over $200 through product purchases to donate to victims of the recent tornado in Oklahoma.

To make a purchase from Green Housewives Bath Company to help fight back against cancer, please visit from June 24 through July 8. You can also make a purchase through the facebook page

Their products are also available at Chelle’s, 211 Broadway, Chesterton and The Wellness Centre, 1806 Burlington Beach Rd., Valparaiso.

The Relay For Life of Duneland will be held from noon July 13 through 6 a.m. July 14 at Chesterton Middle School, 651 W. Morgan Avenue.
