Thank you all for entering our Earth Day contest.  We chose our winner randomly and would like to congratulate Commenter #9 (Mana) on winning this prize pack.

Mana said, “Every year in March, we put up green decorations around the house, put green food coloring in our meals and one year i even wore a goofy leprechaun hat :) Our Sunday afternoon tradition is to drive down to the local airfield where they have a large recycling station. We recycle all our recyclables, and then drive around so our kids can look at all the planes. Ideally I would like to build our own solar array to complement our household electricity usage.”

Thanks for entering and please check back each Tuesday for a brand new giveaway!

In conjunction with my role in the Walmart Eleven Moms, I was able to sample just a handful of the great products Walmart is carrying to green up our household routines. I am truly trying to do my part to be green and teach my children to love & protect our Earth so it is wonderful to get to sample of the great green products on the market today.

In addition to sampling them, in honor of Earth Day, we were offered the opportunity to giveaway the items we received  and to share the green love with our wonderful readers.

Here is just a little information about the products that are included in this fabulous prize pack that one lucky reader will win!

Brita Water Pitcher- The last time I bought one of these was in college and maybe that is why I am so impressed with some of the great design changes that have happened since my last purchase. This handy filtration system comes with a flip top so that it is easy to fill with tap water and a a little covered pour spout that keeps your water nice and fresh. Replacing your water bottles with these filtration systems are a great green alternative and are a lot friendlier on your wallet to boot.

greenworks1Clorox GreenWorks Cleaning Products- Longtime readers will know that I am a HUGE fan of the new line from GreenWorks and have yet to have met a product from this line that I do not like. These cleaners are more affordable than many of the green cleaners on the market and they offer the same great green benefits. In our house, we love the GreenWorks wipes and dish soap. I am sure you will find that these perform just as good as the harsh stuff, and they are easy on your wallet too! I encourage you to give these product a try!

Tide Coldwater- With two crazy kids, we have a lot of dirty clothes in our house and laundry detergent gets put to the test. I am a huge fan of Tide and feel it is worth that little extra bit of money to keep my clothes looking nice to splurge on a good detergent. The new Tide Coldwater can keep your clothes looking great without even turning on the hot water. This is better for the environment and will keep your clothes lasting longer.

White Cloud “Green Earth” Paper Towels- I won’t lie, one thing we do not purchase a lot of is paper products. I have learned I can whittle this expense down to just toilet paper by disposing of the disposable items. That being said, there are those occasions where a roll of paper towels comes in handy. I won’t illustrate those occasions, as I am sure you can imagine a few on your own. White Cloud makes a line of “Green Earth” paper towels made from 100% recycled fibers. If you are a family that has a paper towel addiction, this line would be a great option to explore or to keep on hand for life’s little emergencies.

bissell-grean-machineBissell Little Green Deep Cleaner- Of all of the products in the line-up, my enthusiasm for this one can’t be surpassed. My obsession with Bissell knows no bounds and their Little Green Floor Cleaner is great for any mom with messy kids or animals. You can not only spot clean your floors, but you can also tidy up the upholstery with ease. Anybody have a minivan stuck with years of  McDonald Happy Meals? This might be the ticket for getting order restored in the car or your children’s carseats. It takes up very little room and is a great gadget to keep those carpets looking beautiful in your house. What makes it earth-friendly? The parts are made from post-consumer recycled plastic and it has PVC-free tanks and hose. They also greatly reduced the packaging to help keep this green machine as green as possible!

For one of my lucky and amazing readers, I am offering this ENTIRE prize pack from Walmart, Bissell, White Cloud, Tide, Clorox Greenworks, and Brita (valued at approximately $130) to you, in honor of Earth Day! To enter, please leave a comment by Tuesday (04/28) at 8PM EST and tell me one habit you will change to green one of your household routines. The more creative, the better! Good luck to each of you and Happy Earth Day!

    I am now shopping (only when I *need* to) more often at thrift stores and garage sales. Buying used items is green because it saves the energy and raw materials that would be used in making new ones. My current Britta pitcher is also quite old and I’d like to have their new & improved version. Thanks for the contest.

    We have a garden and we composte and if I catch the kids not in their rooms with the lights on-they get one warning to shut it off and then they have to pay me a dollar.

    I drinks lots of fluids of all kinds, and i will make an honest effort to never let those bottles go un-recycled!

    I was taught to recyle while still a youth, and was shown by my grandmother how to compost trimmings from veggies and fruit that we used for meal preparation. She also taught us to turn out the lights in rooms as we leave.

    We are definitely recycling more, not using little water bottles – we bought PABA free bottles to reuse and trying to get away from all of those plastic bags with the reusable grocery sacks.

  7. 557

    We no longer use the little disposable bathroom cups, instead we each have a designated cup to use.

  8. 558

    I use the new lightbulbs, take reusable shopping bags, I love bamboo fabric, use PUR water filter and use a safe waterbottle rather than using bottled water and soda.

    We are covering our window in foil to keep the trailor cooler, we turn off the ater heat when not in use & I am going to change all the light bulbs to the new green flouresent ones.

    Not sure if this is still open to entries, but I’ll give you my thoughts nonetheless:
    I will try, with the help of my earth-conscious kinder, to plant an organic garden. My thumbs: they’re black, and there really isn’t hope for them…but perhaps I can piggy-back on my kinder’s ability to grow things.

    I am going to try to use natural products for cleaning my house as much as I can
