Easy Steps to Goin' Green and Contest



Many of today's families are taking steps to promote a more balanced and natural lifestyle. As Kermit the Frog has been quoted, "It's not easy bein' green!", but I beg to differ...

I read the daily paper, watch the local and national news, and sense the quickening pulse of the global village, and it gives me pause to wonder about the future for our children. I work hard to be a relevant role model to my kids which includes opting for more environmentally responsible choices. These are small steps to help our environment and help to protect our legacy for future generations - clean air, clean water, and clean food supplies are vital for all!

To this end, I'm embracing the ideal for a more natural approach including making some recent changes in cleaning products around the house. I'm also exploring natural cosmetics, beauty products, and food. More about those in another entry...

I have discovered the new line of natural cleaners, Clorox Greenworks. This great line of household products have been under development for over 5 years and launched this year in 2008. Clorox states that it is fully committed to continuing the development of these types of products and set standards in the natural line. I'm pleased to learn of these great products that leave no harsh chemical fumes or residue.

The sustainable products are 99% natural and contain no phosperous or bleach, but clean thoroughly with natural, biodegradable ingredients such as essential lemon oil and coconut-based cleansing agents. They do not test on animals. They smell wonderful and work comparable to the current products I had been using. They are widely available and are fairly priced. I have found promotional coupons available in the weekly newspaper flyers to help save, too!

The Clorox brand has been a favorite of mine for many years, and this line up of natural products does not disappoint:
All Purpose Cleaner Toilet Bowl Cleaner
Dilutable Cleaner Bathroom Cleaner
Glass & Surface Cleaner Glass Cleaner
Diswashing Liquids

Clorox has also collaborated in this important endeavor with the United States Environmental Protection Agency. All the Greenworks products sport a Design for Environment (DIE) Logo. The United States EPA created this identification to reduce risks to people and the environment by preventing pollution.

Further, you can visit the website: www.30daystonatural.com
Sign up for daily 30 days to natural emails and learn more about ways your family can help our environment.

Clorox is also offering a promotional 100% recycled cotton tote bag with a pretty daisy screenprint to celebrate their involvement with the Sierra Club. A portion of the proceeds from each sale will benefit the Sierra Club's important environmental work!

To celebrate our "Goin' Green" natural efforts, I am hosting a blog contest. One randomly selected winner will receive a free Clorox Greenworks Sierra Club tote bag. To enter the contest, please leave a comment post on this blog thread. Deadline for entries is Friday, October 31st at 12:01AM EST. One entry per person. US residents only please. Winner will be notified within 24 hours of contest end and must provide mailing address to receive prize.

Thank you for visiting my blog and participating in the contest.
Do your part today to help our environment!
