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. *

PUR
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!

  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.

  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!

  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.
