My wife already spends all our extra money on organic shampoos, soaps, and cleaning products.. But hey a basket filled with cleaning products instead of colored eggs would be terrific :)

I've been using green cleaning products for years because I want to do what's right for the planet. It's also much safer for pets and people. After switching to green, you will become assaulted by the chemicals when you walk into a place that was just cleaned with traditional cleaners - no thank you! And to think we were once used to that!

I've been doing pretty good with reusable bags and cups but realized I could use some work in improving my eco-cleaning supplies. Would love to win some freebies to get my momentum rolling.

I'm inspired to give my home a greener clean by my children. I want to make sure they are not only in a clean environment, but also protected against being exposed to any toxins. I would love to try some new sponges or rags!

We have a new baby in the house, and I am committed to making our house greener! It's important to me that she's not exposed to chemicals, and it starts with cleaning products!!

I'd love to win this set of green cleaning products! We've been updating our cleaning habits at home to include more friendly products and less harsh chemicals. I have an 8 month old, and as his mobility increases it's more and more important to make sure he's scooting across baby-friendly (which usually coincides with Earth-friendly!) surfaces, free of toxic compounds that could adversely affect him.

I'd like to give my home a greener clean because I think it's time people stop using harsh chemicals to clean. these are harmful to us but also to our planet earth. We only have one planet earth, and we must take care of her like we would with our own family. Giving my home a greener clean will help me to show people around me that green cleaners are efficient and earth-friendly at the same time. GO GREEN !

I have Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. I get frequent and severe migraines from chemical fragrances. I would love to stop using all chemicals in my home, but it's often challenging to find chemical-free products that are effective (i have yet to find a glass cleaner that doesn't leave streaks). It's costly to keep experimenting with all the brands out there to find one that will actually work.

I would love to switch to green cleaners but it is baby steps and I feel guilty buying new products when I still have some old ones. Help me!

It would be easier if they were more accessible at the stores by my house. Whole Foods is a 40 minute drive for us so we rarely go unless we happen to be in the area and I haven't seen any of these products at our local stores.

My husband and I live in a very small apartment in an old building that is very dusty and difficult to keep clean. Allergies have become a major problem despite the fact that I try to use all-natural products whenever possible. My husband is disabled and I, at 58, am in college for the first time after being laid off 2 years ago, so our finances are pretty slim.

I've wanted to try more green cleaners, but I've been unsure which ones are actually green. These are some great suggestions to get me started! Thanks Whole Foods!

My husband and I love green cleaning products. It just makes sense...and with me expecting our first child in September, I'm in full "Nesting" mode and starting to stock up on products that are safe not only for us and the environment, but are also safe for baby.

I would love to get these products to use in our home..our very first home that we have ever owned!! We have 3 kids..5,2 1/2, and 6 months. I hate having to expose them to bleach and other chemicals while cleaning. I try my best not to use them to often, but sometimes it seems like others just dont get things clean. We are a very natural family in the sense of our bodies...but not in our home so far...I'm ready for the change!

In Salt Lake City, recycling is largely unavailable in apartment complexes. Each week, I must load up my Subaru and deliver the recyclables to be properly reused. I often wonder if the gas and travel are more harmful to the Earth than not recycling at all. My apartment needs the love of Earth-friendly products to make up for its lack of recycling availability. Thank you.

Recently, I've been having trouble using "conventional" cleaning products and have been trying to go to the green products. I find them easier to use and they leave my areas not only clean but smelling wonderful. The added plus is that I am not sick after using them! I would LOVE to win a basketful of items to use.

As human beings, it is our responsibility to be the caretakers of this planet we call home. Every small effort adds up. I want my children to learn that it all begins at home. By using 'green' products in our home, our children grow accustomed to the fact that there really are no other choices but the right ones. I'd love to win this gift basket as a tool to help raise earth-friendly, responsible kids into the same type of adults.

I could use a Green Makeover. My father-in-law is allergic to many detergents and also the chemicals used to clean upholstery. It would be nice to have him over without worrying about whether or not the towel(s) we use to cover wherever he chooses to sit have been thoroughly rid of chemicals. I also own 2 dogs and 3 cats (big house!). A couple of our friends are allergic to cats. It would nice to see if green products work (and smell) better than the harsh things I use to clean the house enough for these friends to come over. (And yes, the poor kitties are confined to the basement before/during when these friends are over.) Thank You.

I love your products I make my once a month trip out to whole foods just to stock up! I started really going green after my daughter was born with celebral palsy.The cleaner the air and enviorment for her the better off.My favorite thing is the green shield wipes I even take them when we travel and out to eat they are so good.The products are a little more pricer than the regular ones found in the grocery but the long term effects are so much more worth it!!!

I've been slowly working on changing things over to Earth friendly practices...I take my own bags to the store, I've learned to conserve water in small ways, etc. Recently, I went on a detoxification diet which includes ONLY natural and organic food products. I'm amazed at the difference. In a week and a half I lost 7 lbs of hard to lose weight, the ringing in my ears stopped, and my asthma/allergies have SIGNIFICANTLY decreased. The next step in eliminating toxins is environmental...removing chemicals from the home (cleaning supplies, deodorants, etc.) I honestly hadn't realized how much doing the right thing for the planet meant doing the right thing for me, too.

My best life is a natural one, and that means simplifying both the way that I eat and the way that I clean. With all of the disease that is so prevalent because of the drugs that we ingest and are exposed to, including the harsh chemicals in traditional cleaners, it only makes sense to live naturally!

I try to use green cleaners as much as possible but because they're much more expensive than the toxic ones, and because I am a poor student, I can't always afford them. Winning this would really help me out!
