Celebrate Earth Month - A Giveaway

We all know the importance of taking care of the environment. Next month in honor of Earth month we can all celebrate by saving water, saving energy and reducing waste. Procter & Gamble and Target are making it easy for us to remember to do this by highlighting these "future friendly" products:

Tide Coldwater
This detergent offers up to 80% energy savings in every load. *

By switching from bottled water to PUR faucet filtered water, you can save up to $600 a year** and make over a thousand bottles disappear***.

Pampers Cruisers
Made with Dry Max, these disposable diapers contain 10% less average material weight****. Moms using Pampers Swaddlers and Cruisers today have generated 15 million fewer pounds of waste than in 2007*****

Target is a great place to be. Not only do they have quality, earth friendly products but it's where my son used to practice walking at eight months old:

In addition, Target is offering guests a mobile coupon for $1.00 off Tide Coldwater. You can sign up for Target mobile coupons by texting COUPON to TARGET (827438). Happy Earth month, everyone!

  1. use newspapers to clean windows instead of paper towels

  2. We use hand towels tied to the drawer pulls to dry hands, etc in the kitchen instead of constantly using new paper towels.

  3. We use vinegar/water to clean with instead of store bought cleaners. It cleans well & is safe around kids & dogs:)


  4. We like to dry our clothes on the line in nice weather. (I'm still waiting for the nice weather!!!) :-)

  7. My tip is to go in with family members to purchase seldom used products, like punch bowls and carpet cleaners and share them. This reduces the use of materials.

  8. stop buying bottled water
    thanks for entering me!

  9. I think that my best green tip is to start out making small changes. Every little bit helps. For example, if you didn't recycle newspapers before, start by doing that, and then moving on to a bigger "green" task as you get used to doing things!

  10. My best tip is to dry clothes outside instead of using the dryer.

  11. My fav green things are recycling and growing veggies at home.

  12. When we're low on water in the summer I use a bucket to collect the water in the shower that would normally go down the drain as you wait for the water to heat up, then use it to water the garden.

  13. can't believe he was walking at 8 months!

  14. I recycle most things, minimize my incoming packaging and use mass transit for almost everything.

  15. We wash our dishes once per day, laundry once per week, make multiple meals all at once, and recycle most things.

  16. I always use Coldwater and Tide !

  17. Use tote bags the grocery store and try not to buy products that really aren't necessary when you can do it your self with products you have at home like vinegar, lemon juice etc.


  18. I have started using energy saving lightbulbs, green cleaning products, and taking my own bags to the grocery store. Thanks! ard1977@gmail dot com

  19. If you have to wash a few items in the kitchen sink by hand, don't let the water run the entire time. Suds the dishes down first, then rinse them.

  20. my best tip is to use reusable sandwich bags

  21. Make sure you recycle everything you can -- papers, clothing (unusable), bottles, cans, jars, etc.

  23. Unplug your phantom appliances like microwaves and computers that you get charged for when you're not even using them

  24. We hang out our clothes/laundry to dry...we don't buy bottled water

  25. My green tip is reusing plastic ziploc bags---rinse out after use and use again!


  26. My best green tip is to bring your own shopping bag (canvas or cloth0 when you are shopping. This way you are not using any paper or plastic.

  27. Use your handtowels that you are ready to put in the washer to clean your bathroom mirrors and household mirrors. Rub hard and then throw in washer. Works great-save paper towels and spray cleaner. No lint!
