by Tara Kuczykowski on April 27, 2009 · 825 comments

earthmonth-giveawayEarth month is winding down now, but I've got a huge giveaway that will help you maintain your green efforts long beyond just this month. Included in this giveaway are the following items:

  • Bissell Little Green Machine
  • Clorox Greenworks Cleaners
  • White Cloud Recycled Paper Towels and Toilet Paper
  • Brita Water Filter Pitcher
  • Tide Cold Water Detergent – not pictured

I had the opportunity to try these products out myself, and I've been very pleased with all of them. I think of all of them, the Bissell Little Green Machine is my favorite because it makes cleaning up all of those little kid and pet messes so easy and convenient. The most surprising would be the White Cloud recycled paper towels and toilet paper. I was suprised by how soft they were!

Hi, I keep reusable bags in my car & always grab one even if I am just running in a convience store

5 Christine L-U April 29, 2009 at 6:05 pm

green tip: Recycle! One thing we like to do in our home with plastic grocery bag is to use them as trash bags. Containers are also fun for baby to play with.

6 Anne April 29, 2009 at 6:41 pm

Don't eat meat every day, if at all, as that's really the best thing we can do for ourselves, the animals, and our planet.

7 Nikki Courtney April 29, 2009 at 7:33 pm

Recycle! Recycle! Recycle!

Green tip: I use reusable bags when I go to the store. I also recycle at home.

10 Lissa April 29, 2009 at 8:23 pm

We use reusable water bottles instead of buying disposable ones and reuse plastic bags at home.

11 Stephanie April 29, 2009 at 8:37 pm

My family gardens and composts. We love getting food without pesticides or chemical fertilizers.

I use plastic bags for trash baskets, garage sales, customers like that. The best is to wrap a paint roller in one tight. It is ready for when there are interruptions, or just didn't the job done.

13 patricia April 29, 2009 at 9:04 pm

everyone in my family recycles EVERYTHING that can be used again! RECYCLE, RECYCLE, RECYCLE

Cloth diapers. Really, they are so easy!! And, so cheap comparatively.

17 Heidi April 29, 2009 at 9:56 pm

We use cloth napkins instead of paper. Not very exciting but it's nice to not have to buy them : ).

20 Kristi April 29, 2009 at 10:11 pm

I don't know how much the White Cloud people would like this, but to cut down on waste and expense, we use cloth napkins and towels most of the time now - and we hardly ever have to buy paper napkins - good for the environment and the pocketbook :)

21 Nicole April 29, 2009 at 10:29 pm

Green Tip---forget paper napkins & paper towels we kitchen towels as personal napkins all the time. And for spills and other messes we use rags.

23 Gayle April 29, 2009 at 11:09 pm

Whenever I buy one or two items, I tell the cashier don't put it in a bag unless it's something hard to carry by hand like meat. How many millions of bags would be saved each year if everyone did this!

24 jessica April 29, 2009 at 11:38 pm

we use vinegar to clean. it works great

My favorite green tip is using cloth napkins. We made the switch a few months ago and I love them.

I have been trying to use reusable shopping bags more. It's hard when you have a lot of purchases, but I think this will be a big help. I have also been trying to recycle more and teach my children to recycle as well.

Use old panty hose to hang onions, pototoes, garlic. Slide 1 vegetable in, tie a knot, slide another in, tie a knot. Keeps things fresh longer so no wasted food , no throwing food out because it's gone bad. And you've saved a pair of pantyhose from a trip to the landfill.

35 Donna L April 30, 2009 at 4:56 am

Recycle and reuse have become some of our favorite words.

36 minnie19944 April 30, 2009 at 6:38 am

I started to clean with vinegar more and I have 4 bags (2 in each car)

37 Kimberly April 30, 2009 at 7:15 am

Most recently we have started using dish cloths and paper napkins instead of paper towels and paper napkins.

I joined the forum with user name 'ioklady'...I have been navigating for a few days...good work ya' all! (I live in Kentucky-reason for accent!). Boy, I could sure us the Bisselln Little Green Machine for my stairs!! Although, (in the spirit of Green), water and a little elbow grease can do the job, (builds the biceps!)
Have a great day!

We have decided to use fans instead of air conditioning this summer. It's good for the environment AND saves us money!

44 Meagan Lambeth April 30, 2009 at 10:01 am

I use reusable sandwich containers for my husbands lunch everyday. It saves money on baggies, and is better for the environment. Win-win situation.

45 Kathryn L April 30, 2009 at 10:26 am

Pull weeds instead of using pesticides.
