Earth Month '09- Little Green Giveaway

***WINNER PICKED 4/23 WITH RANDOM.ORG***


***CONGRATULATIONS, #422 As They Grow Up!!!***

her comment...
I learned that CFL bulbs are better for the environment





Walmart is celebrating Earth Month by helping shoppers "save & live green" with a special eco-focused section of their website. Consumers can educate themselves with informative articles and tips, share advice with the Walmart community and, of course, shop smarter AND greener! There is also an accompanying Walmart Earth Month YouTube Channel, where you can view money and earth-saving strategies from the Elevenmoms.

As a member of the ever-growing More Than Elevenmoms splinter group, I received several products from Walmart's Earth-Friendly Housewares and Earth-Friendly Appliances selection to review. I've written about the Clorox Greenworks line before so I knew that I would love the Green Works Natural Dishwashing Liquid and Green Works All Purpose Cleaner Spray. These products work just as well as traditional cleansers but they are 99% natural and biodegradable, with no fumes or chemical residues. This Earth Month factoid really strikes a chord with me: If every Walmart shopper bought one canister of Green Works™ natural biodegradable cleaning wipes, we could keep 12 million pounds of petroleum-based plastic from being produced*. Plus, I love the fact that they're compostable so keeping the counters tidy doesn't mean throwing endless paper towels into the landfills.



I also received a jug of Tide Coldwater. I already prefer washing my laundry in cold water and I do use Tide so this is a great product for me. It's been specially formulated to wash better in cold water, which saves energy and potentially a little money on your heating bills: If every Walmart customer switched to washing in cold water with Tide® Coldwater for 50 loads, we could save nearly $4 billion and 39 billion kilowatt-hours of energy*.



The Brita Riviera Digital Pitcher is an updated version of the filter pitcher I came to know and love in college. It has an electronic filter change indicator that reminds you when to change the filter so you have clean, odor-free drinking water. This is really a great thing in a town like Wichita that tends to have stinky tap water! And if you pair it with a reusable cup or container, you save the waste from buying bottled water: If all 200 million Walmart customers used filtered water, we could keep billions of plastic bottles out of our landfills*.



The last thing I reviewed was a Bissell Little Green Floor Cleaner. With six cats, a five year old and a particularly messy 20 month old, having access to a spot cleaner was very nice indeed. We don't have carpeting but we do have area rugs and Jasper is fond of smooshing berries into them. I was impressed with the Little Green's performance, even on old stains. Better still, it features a sustainable design and packaging, PVC-free tanks and hose. Even the formula is clean and green! Best of all is the fact that the Little Green is made from recycled plastics: If every Walmart customer bought a Little Green machine, it would be like recycling two million bags of trash*.



*Here's the data to back up the earth-friendly claims of these products!




To enter and win your own Bissell Little Green Floor Cleaner, please comment on this post with something you learned from the Walmart Earth Month YouTube Channel.

  1. I learned that they have a hugely comprehensive listing of available videos that instruct how to "go Green" in your daily activities and cleaning routine. It is an excellent source of "real" tips from real people. Youtube is also hip, which draws in the younger people, encouraging them to be eco-conscious too.

  4. I watched a video with Shelley who discussed Green Works surface cleaner. She was happy to take this to her daughter's pre-k and I know why.
    When I think back to when my son was in Pre-K, I am horrified. They thought nothing of it then to use bleach to clean the work surfaces and then there was a woman that insisted on making them sparkle by using ammonia on top of that. I really wish GreenWorks had been around then.
    Those are some pretty eye-opening statistics you've mentioned in your post. Think how much we can change things just by making small changes.
    Thanks for the wonderful review!

    WOW - I just learned a LOT of extra ways to go green and help the environment than what I was aware of. For example, extra weight in the trunk of your vehicle actually increases fuel consumption (I am going to go right out and get those card tables out of my trunk and put them in the garage where they belong!!!), I learned also that if you do not have a low flow toilet you may use a 2-ltr bottle instead to reduce water usage. And, ALSO, this weekend I am going to replace some of my standard light bulbs around the house _ I didn't realize what a huge difference CFL bulbs can make, especially if enough people would start using them... which I am going to do! Loved all the information and am going to have my daughter check it out as well :)

  23. Classy Mommy shared with us that if we use a PowerStrip we can help save a lot of energy - especially in places like the living room where the t.v., vcr, dvd player & game systems are hooked up. With a simple push of the button we can turn all of these off at the same time with the PowerStrip.

  24. I learned that not only are CFL bulbs better but they are recyclable!

  74. Wow..there were a lot of good tips on the videos I liked. One was to make recycling more convenient...if your recycling bins are outside, you are a lot less likely to recycle than if you, for example have two wastebaskets in the kitchen area--one for garbage and one for recycling. In the same video is the plea to use washable towels or clean rags for clean up rather than paper towels. I am doing well on the recycling; I haven't quite given up all paper towel use yet.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I learned that putting a full water bottle in the back of the toilet will reduce the amount of water for each flush - and if you pay for your water and have four toilets, that's a savings of $25 a month!

    Thanks!

  76. I learned I really need to start buying CFL light bulbs! I had no idea they conserved so much. I have a bulb out in the hallway, I'm going to make it a point to buy a CFL to replace it.

The one I think I can do now that will make a big impact, though it is going to be a big habit to break, is to stop using my trunk as a storage area... I had no idea it could make a big difference in my fuel economy. It makes sense, but I just never thought about it. Sigh, I have to clean it out...

  114. How entertaining and useful the You Tub Videos are! I like being taught ways to live a greener life via products and everyday tips. Things like rechargeable batteries, real towels instead of paper towels,

  134. I watched Mercedes from Common Sense with Money's tips for a greener kitchen.
    She recommends using cloth towels instead of paper towels in the kitchen. Also stop prewashing dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. You can also reuse plastic ziploc bags that were only used for things like cookies or crackers...my grandmother has been doing that for years, she always rinses them out, dries them and reuses them.

  143. I watched a Classy Mommy video showing how to conserve energy by hooking up tv/dvd player/game systems to a power strip with a power button. Flip the switch on the strip when not in use.

    Thanks!

  146. We have crappy tap water too, but it's not so bad now that we have a whole-house filter. It's really gross when you boil the water, because it leaves all this white residue (calcium, not cocaine) on the pot.

    I liked listening to Classy Mommy talk about rechargable batteries, which are really easy to use. I like her little intro and music. I'd like some of the hyper-drug that she's on.
