This may be your last chance to win a slew of “green” household cleaning products, but it’s never too late to make the switch from conventional to “green” cleaning. As for the giveaway, you’ve got until May 10th to enter a comment on our giveaway blog post (not this post) letting us know what inspired you to make the switch to a greener clean. This giveaway will include everything from paper towels and bath tissue to sponges, trash bags, laundry detergent and spray cleaner. Who couldn’t use a care package like that? Here’s the rundown on some of the products that will be featured in each gift package: 365 EVERYDAY VALUE® Our 365 Everyday Value products will clean your clothes, your dishes and your home – all without emptying your pocketbook. Plus, we’ve made some recent improvements in our line of paper products, like using 100% recycled paper and whitening without chlorine. Our household cleaning products have your home, and the environment, in mind. GREENSHIELD ORGANIC Greenshield is currently the only USDA Organic line of household cleaning and laundry products. Their product line is made with palm oil sourced from environmentally responsible farms in South America, and their primary materials supplier is a small, woman-owned and -operated business. BETTER LIFE Better Life makes a unique line of 100% plant-derived formulas that clean surfaces with more power in less time. Plus, their hypoallergenic ingredients are a safer alternative for people, pets and the planet. Better Life makes household cleaning products without solvents, silicones, VOCs, ethoxylates, petroleum-based ingredients or harsh surfactants. TWIST Twist makes a complete collection of naturally spongy, plant-based, scrubby cleaning marvels. From handmade sponges made from dye-free cellulose sourced from certified-sustainable tree farms to loofahs grown on vines and a commitment to environmentally conscious production.  Twist products clean well, respect the planet and look good doing it. ECOVER Ecover products, made with powerful plant-based and mineral ingredients, are for anyone wanting to make a shift in their cleaning habits. It takes a lot to lure you away from your tried and true conventional brand, we know, and you don’t have time for cleaners that don’t clean. Think of Ecover as a fantastic line of cleaning products that also happens to be a safer alternative to bring into your home! Winners will be chosen at random, so everyone has an equal chance. Tell us, what inspires you to switch to “greener” cleaning products? Make sure you comment on our giveaway blog post and not on this post (which is why comments are turned off for this one) by May 10th.
