I am big on reusing items and recycling, and I also try to use natural products in my home. They are safer for my family, and for Mother Earth. I am moving into a new place soon, and would love to only be using green-friendly cleaning products from day 1!

I have worked really hard to makeover my family and our household this year. We are now 95%-100% Organic Food in which we purchase at Whole Foods each week:) I have now been working to replace the household cleaners with Green Products. The switch from food was easy, it tastes better and we feel better. I am having a harder time with the cleaning products... it seems to be a trial and error process, not all green cleaners are equal, which means that I have wasted some money in the process of "testing" which ones really work. But soon enough I will have my list of go to green cleaners accomplished.

I already try to use green cleaners when I can, and make my own sometimes, too. One thing I would like to find is something to replace chlorine bleach. It does seem the best for killing germs and whitening.

I would love to make a change to environmentally safe cleaning products. Not only will it help me contribute to a better place to live, but they are safer for my family's allergy problems as well. Wish I had a Whole Foods store near me.

I want to do everything possible to leave the world a better place for my children and grandchildren. Would love to try some green cleaning products.

This is great a company that cares! I would love to win these products and be another standing individual that cares about all of us! I also have switched from reg. cleaning prod. to vinegar and I love it, somehow it leaves a fresh scent better than chemicals

I'm trying to keep cleaning greener due to the environment and my own auto-immune health issues. I have Lupus and am extra sensitive to whats near me.

It would take a better cost, but even more importantly for me, a store closer to me. The closest is Pittsburgh, I am about 50min from the store, we need one closer. There are plenty of new construction malls in Irwin, Greensburg area, we would love one here, and your income with your store will increase. Hope to win, and more importantly hope a store comes in around here SOON.

I usually use green cleaning products because they don't test on animals and they're better for the environment; and they're better for me and my cats.

I remember the first Earth Day back in 1971, as I was junior in high school. We had a speaker who presented info that made us sit up and take notice of our environment. Slowly, I worked on making my life greener...recycling, using a push mower, choosing glass containers over plastic...and relying on natural products to make my home safe. 41 years ago is when I made the switch!!!!

I have breathing issues, and I know that the chemicals in cleansers don't help the medical condition. But yet, I keep buying them b/c I don't know the other brands. If I were to win these great products, it would encourage me to stop buying the brands I grew up with, just because it's what's always been in the house.

I would love to try these products. We are trying to be more Green! I love my garden, recycling, and trying to conserve energy.

I have done alot of "internal" work to rid myself of toxic, destructive beliefs from trauma in my childhood. I am equally committed to making the physical cleaning of my home the same way - organic and healthy, free of toxins and chemicals.

I try to go green whenever and whereever possible. We recycle paper, cans, and what ever we can. I have switched from paper towels to sponges (i just run them through the dishwasher or clothes washer when doing a load). I have replaced all lightbulbs in the house with the spiral bulbs and make a huge effort to turn off lights when not in that room. I have a pet that likes to "eat" dryer sheets. I now use a dryer bar. Cleaning products without all the chemicals is benefical to the environment and pets and people.

Lower prices and a product that can cut through dirt, counter stains, bathroom messes, tub scumb, and any mess a 5 and 7 year old can make!

I'm inspired to have a green home so my three boys grow up in a healthy environment. I also want them to know and understand it's important to take care of our Earth and environment!!

We are always looking or ways to do better for the environment in our daily living. By adding greener products into the mix, our home would not only be better for the environment, but also better for our family. Actually using the products and seeing that they do a good job is all I would need to go green.

Next week I am moving in with my girlfriend after being together for 3 years! (The best part is that we will be two blocks from Whole Foods!) One of the qualities I admire most about her is her sense of responsibility for the earth and its future. She has gotten me into composting, recycling our #5 plastics (at Whole Foods of course) and bringing old clothing to a textile recycling drop-off. One thing that I have not done yet though is go green with my cleaning products. As we create our new household, I think starting fresh with a gift basket of eco-friendly cleaning products will be a perfect symbol of caring for our future together. And I may even offer to clean the bathroom!

"Green," "recycled/recyclable," and "organic" are everyday words in my vocabulary... I've got a young child, pets and the environment they grow up in to think about! As I continue the transition to green cleaning, I'm always looking for new, effective products to use.

I try to make our home as green as possible. Not only is it for my family's health, but I'm trying to teach my son at a young age that we need to protect the planet because it's our home. If being green is something he can grow up doing then someday when he's out on his own he can influence other people and his own family to do the same. I'm trying to encourage future green-ness one little person at a time!

I have 2 kids and a few pets. I know that green is best but as a single mom on a tight budget sometimes I have to hit the dollar tree for products. I would love to win this to make a toxic free home for my kids and pets :) Thanks

I would love to be able to win this basket because I try to buy as much as I can but their cost is too high for my budget. I am the only money-earner in my household and it makes it difficult.
