I have switched over to greener choices wherever possibly could. Last May my 14 year old son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. I re-evaluated our whole lifestyle and made drastic changes in it.

I am working to transition my house to a non-processed,chemical-free. It is happening gradually; but I'm getting there. This gift basket would help a lot. Thanks

I am a college student and it is very hard to go green because of the cost of the products. It is harder to buy the "greener" products when you are on a tight budget. I do what i can though by recycling and not using paper or plastic silverware, plate, etc. Winning this gift basket would help me take the next step in my "greener" living and get a taste of what I will be able to afford once I graduate. Going green is such a great movement. We have a great Earth, that God has blessed us with, and all we have to do is take care of it.

I would love to be able to use products that were safe for my pets, family, and the environment. I am a life long sufferer of asthma and find that conventional cleaners have fumes that tend to aggravate my asthma, and I believe using natural products would stop it.

Always trying to reduce the chemicals in the home.

After having children, it just felt wrong to use conventional cleaning products in my home. I seek out healthier alternatives, committing to a safer home.

My husband and I are all for green cleaners when we can afford them and if they do a good job. We'd love to try some new products that we haven't experimented with before. Anything that will help the quality of the world I'm passing on to my children and grandchildren interests me.

I'd need eco-friendly products to be a little more affordable. It's hard to do the right thing when regular cleaning products can be bought at most dollar stores. Maybe Whole Foods could try selling trial sizes? That way I could see if I even liked them without buying a huge carton.

I'm inspired to be greener around my home to keep my family and pets happy, healthy, and clean! I would never want to damage my family or pets with harsh chemicals so I try to use all natural cleaners, but they are so expensive. I'm also being green by growing my own herbs and vegetables and composting in the back yard!

As someone who is highly allergic to a great deal of environmental things -- going green has saved my life. I cannot use anti-bacterial soaps, body washes. I clean greenly by using as much natural (no crap added) stuff. Vinegar, water, baking soda and hydrogen peroxide are some of the items I use. I am also allergic to aloe vera, so that is also removed from my ingredient list.

Even though they are higher priced, I think it is important to lend a helping hand to having a cleaner environment. I think one person CAN make a difference, and what better place to start than in the home. Our families become healthier without all the added chemicals in regular products.

I have already made the switch, in my home but just this week, I have talked my boss into dropping our toxic office cleaners & letting me do it. Their smelly & Toxic products would drive me out of the office early. So I would love to win the gift basket and take it to the office. :) Thank you!

I'm all for greening my products and doing my part to save this planet. I only use sulfate free shampoo. I recycle more than I throw away. I think using products that are biodegradeable is only smart. It's expensive to change out all of your products at once though. My husband has beennout of work for a year so I have to use up what I have brides I can buy more. And unfortunately, greener products are more expensive. But I do use baking soda and vinegar for lots of cleaning as well.

I have three cat's and want to have it better for them, as well down here I have acquired allergies. So I feel that this may work better for me to clean. There is alot of dust for whatever reason.

I have two small boys and hope that I can leave this world a little better than when I found it. We use cloth diapers and Rockin' Green Soap (which only a few WFM carry) which is AMAZINGLY green. I hang dry the diapers when the weather permits to cut down on energy use. I want my house to be clean, but don't want dangerous chemicals around my babies. I use Ecover, Biocleen, and a few of the 365 products, around the house, but am always looking for the ones that work the best for my hard earned dollar! I'd love to try what you have! Thanks so much for being a green champion! Jamie

I am highly allergic to many cleaners, and consequently use very little of what is currently available. I am excited to see that there are so many options. I generally do not go down that aisle at any store, as the smells immediately bother me. I will check that aisle out next time I am at Whole Foods - and I would love to win the gift basket to get me started!

I've been trying to be completely green since I got pregnant a 3 years ago but unfortunately being green doesn't come cheap. I would love to be able to afford to buy green all the time, but usually I have to opt for the generic labels, which aren't green at all. Winning this basket would be awesome!

We would love to switch to greener choices for our house; we've implemented some changes, but are always looking for new and safer products for our household. We have to dogs we love dearly, so we do our best to look for products that will not only be non-toxic for us, but for them too. I deal with an autoimmune thyroid issue, so not having common household chemicals in use that have a negative affect on my immune & endocrine system is really important!

I'd love to have the basket of Green Cleaner Products! In the last several years, I have tried to change our living style and do as much natural cleaning and living as I can! It is great to see how healthy my kids are when only natural products and foods are used around them! It is more expensive to choose the green and natural way, but aren't our families and children especially worth it!? Thanks Whole Foods!

I have already started on working toward switching to all-natural and green cleaners, as well as personal products. It is a slow process, but I already feel better and healthier for it; not just for myself, but for the environment as well. I use a water and vinegar solution for most cleaning, and a microfiber cloth for dusting. It saves money and saves on excess packaging as well. I dont like having any toxic chemicals in my home, and have done pretty good at getting them removed. It all adds up!

Because 1) I prefer having a clean GREEN home - and 2) I need to offest all the noxious pipe cigar and cigarette smoke wafting over into my apartment, from the next door neighbors' balcony!!!

I could use a green makeover because I am a 48 year old disabled person raising my three granddaughters. We all have serious health issues, some of which are allergies and asthma. We could really use green products for our health and the earth.

We have allergies, therefore I am looking for natural items to clean the house with to decrease our allergy flare ups. Winning this basket would be perfect just to help one family, it could be the beginning of a more eco friendly household.

I am inspired to give my home a greener clean because I like using natural products. Chemicals are bad, mmmkay? We already use as much natural stuff as we can, and winning this would be a great help to advance our efforts at a greener lifestyle. :-)
