Going Green and A Giveaway!!!!

I've been trying to do my part to help out the Earth.

I bought about 10 of those reusable bags for shopping. I really like using them because they don't rip open like the plactic ones always do. Now I just need to remember them every time I go to the store.

We recycle. At least we do try to recycle. We have separate trash cans and as long as the kids don't get confused about which is which we do pretty well. I also use the plastic grocery bags that I wind up with as trash bags for the bathrooms.

We carpool. Why drive 2 cars to go to the same place of work?

Recently I was contacted by someone from Ecostore USA about doing a review and a giveaway. I feel terrible that it has taken me this long to get it up. Life has been really crazy lately, with a side of writers block.

They sent me a set of their Vanilla shampoo and conditioner to try. I love it! It has no nasty chemicals, and it leaves my hair just as soft as my normal shampoo.

They have all kinds of green products on their website, and if you live near a Meijer store you can get it there as well. April is Earth Month and as a special treat all orders on their website over $25 qualify for free shipping!

You can enter to win a set of Vanilla shampoo and conditioner! Just check out the Ecostore USA website and tell me which product(s) you think you'd like to try. Then leave me a comment and make sure I have a way to contact you.

You can get also get 1 additional entry for each of the following things, leave an additional comment for each.

That simple.

Entries close at 5:00 pm pacific time on Sunday April 19th and I'll draw the winner by 9:00 pm. Good Luck!

***4/24- Clearly I cannot handle the extra work that is a giveaway. I finally got around to picking the winner, it was Cynthia. I used, haha, for the whole 5 entries that I had. Thank you for you guys who entered. I've been so bad about not doing ANYTHING lately.***


  1. I follow and I'd love to win!! And I will tweet about it!

  2. That sounds like an interesting product. I'm all for anything that DOESN'T have any of the Sodium Laureth Sulfates (or derivations). I make my own soap just to avoid a lot of chemicals but I don't always have time to make my own stuff. Good to know that there are now commercial products available that can do that for me.

  3. I would get the Baby Nappy Balm. We've got some nasty diaper rash here right now!

  4. This sounds like so much fun!

    Count me in!! :)
