1)I get my kids involved by giving their old toys to other children who could make use of them. Here the kids learn 2 lessons: one is about giving to others and the second is about reusing and recycling instead of throwing things away. 2)I can hold a clothing swap where relatives, friends, co-workers and neighbors can have a fun, free way to find new wardrobe.

I am getting more and more involved in living greener. I try to buy organic products/foods/fruits & veggies but I will be planting organic herbs and tomatoes for our use this season.

I will avoid buying products packaged in plastic (or plastic lined)of any kind. Will not use produce bags - just put the produce in my reusable grocery bag.

I will make sure I always use reusable shopping bags if possible, stop wasting water while brushing mt teeth and research what types of vegetables I can grow in pots on my patio or balcony. Thanks again for reminding us how important it is that we do our part and spread the word!

I'm making a commitment to recycle more diligently and to start to re-use/re-purpose as many items as possible. I plan on this being a lot of fun and being very creative with my 9 yr. old.

I have made a lot of changes in my world since having my son in 2008... organic and non-toxic are HUGE in our home. This year we are planting a garden of veggies for the first time together! We have a composter and are purchasing a rain barrel (so excited!!!) I LOVE to use green cleaners or make my own if I need to because then my son can help me :o) So, I thank you for your products and a chance to win some. We are starting to use less power and work with the sun more in our home and yard so that we dont waste anymore. Also purchased organic sponges and are not purchasing any more 'paper' towels. Should make a big dent with a 4 year old :o)

I use vinegar in the washing machine instead of fabric softener and vinegar in the dishwasher instead of rinse aid. Better for the environment, your wallet and you!

I have planted herbs in containers that I can go out my kitchen door and snip these fresh instead of going to the grocery store 8 miles one way.

I have recently tried to make my own cleaners. Most of them work pretty good, I just cant seem to get a good dish soap, so being able to use an environmentally safe brand that works would be fantastic.

I have been using environmentally safe cleaners in my home and love the results. I have yet to find a cleaner for my bath tub which works well with the soap scum. Any suggestions? I love assisting the environment with healthier alternatives as it is our one and only home we have.

I finally found my kind of natural sponges. Instead of using paper towels for all those cleanups around the house, I will from now on use these greener sponges made out of plants.

I try to be green in many ways. I shop resale most times. Am growing my own vegetables this summer, use my food scrapes for composting, use re-useable bags most times, make my own lunch and coffee ect. Am still wanting to learn more ways to be green not only to save our planet and be healthy but also to be wise with our money. I would like to try the environmentally friendly soap for cleaning my home.

I've been doing as much as possible to help mother "Earth". I eat only local organic foods, I am vegetarian, I recycle the trash, it's hard when related to transportation. I like bike riding and my resolution is to avoid my car.....
