I live on my own in the city. I usually picked my product by price. I alway try to do the best for the environment as I can. I recently adopted my cat and I am a huge clean freak. I worry about what I use for her sake and yet keeping my place clean. I would love to try these products to keep my cat and I happy!

I usually don't buy cleaning supplies. I use ordinary stuff like vinegar, baking soda, socks, old towels etc. I would love to win this basket! I try to be conscience of my environment as much as I can! Happy Earth Day!!!

the products would be great to clean with, as well as safe enough for the consumers and environment in terms of contents and packaging. coupons towards other products attached would be helpful as well. more importantly, cost would have to be reasonable to rival conventional household cleaners we're all familiar with already.

I work in a school and see how many chemical products kids are exposed too. Everything from l cleaners used to clean their desks and lockers to their lunch tables. I can't help but wonder if this is causing problems. I strive to keep my home green and my family safe from chemicals as much as possible. I would love to win these products to use in my home as well as suggest the possibility of using some safer things in the school around all those little ones.. You never know, it might happen!

I would LOVE to win the green products because I have a toddler and a new baby on the way. With my 22 month old daughter I am always cleaning and water alone and vinegar mixtures just don't cut it much of the time. I'd love to know that I'm not leaving a chemical trail behind. And with my new one due in a few weeks, I'd like my house to be clean without any harmful fumes since new lungs are very sensitive. I always talk about taking care of the earth and using these green products will help me to know that I'm being a great example for my children.

We have been inspired, or rather 'required', to become a greener family because of our son's autism. Even though it has been a struggle it has also been a blessing in disguise because through it we have learned how everything- the food we eat, the cleaning & hygiene products we use- affects our bodies and it has benefited our entire family. I agree with the comment on the higher prices- even though we realize the importance of cleaning green & buying better food it is hard because of the price difference, but we see it as an investment in our children's health.

Using Eco-friendly cleaning products is just as important as choosing organic food: that way we take care of our health and the health of our planet inside and out. I have a lot of knowledge about natural food, but would really like to learn more and start using green products to clean my house. Happy Earth Day!

I have a 10 month old baby, and I worry about him breathing the chemicals associated with regular cleaning products. I want the best for him -- better than I was willing to do for myself. Since having a baby, going "green" has become very appealing!

I am inspired to use greener products because of my 14-month old daughter. I want to keep things as checmical free for her health and her future. I want her growing up knowing that everything you chose to do has an effect on the environment as well as your health and you should aspire to be good to both :) I already try to use greener products, but would love to win!

I've always tried to switch most of my cleaning products to more Eco friendly ones after I noticed my skin and my son's were having a bad reaction to regular products but what made that transition more from a want to a need was when it was confirmed by my allergist that we are allergic to pesticides so switching became necessary.

The idea of using harsh chemicals (poison?) around my children makes me shudder!

I already use earth friendly products, but more the GREENER!!! They are great for the environment, my toddler and our cat! On the pricey side, but so worth it! We recycle, compost, donate and reuse as much as we can. I (we) do what we can in our household for a beautiful earth now and for future generations. Happy Earth Day!

Products that are safe around my family and pets are very important to me. I do not like products that carry chemicals that I cant even pronounce. I also dont like waste, products that are safe for the enviroment are very important too

We could use a green makeover. We suffer from allergies and I have 2 young children and I know using green products would help with some of our allergies. I like using green product because of my children and have some, but would like to try other green products as well. Thanks for the giveaway!

We've been using vinegar and baking soda to clean and deodorize for a while. And neem oil too. Non toxic, easy to use and leaves no residues. Good for all of us and the planet. I've been skeptical of commercial products which claim to be green. They have to be really, totally green for me to buy them!

I already use green cleaning products (including Ecover and Seventh Generation). They both have a comparable price tag. The only problem is that SOME green products don't have the same capabilities as conventional products, for example, hydrogen peroxide bleach vs chlorine bleach. Both are great disinfectants but hydrogen peroxide just isn't as good at removing stains.

I love using all natural and eco friendly products. It would be awesome to get this gift basket to try out the amazing products, and have other people that I know try them out as well.

I passionate about slowly, step by step turning my entire life more green by the end of 2011. From switching to natural cosmetics, recycling etc, I'm making changes. I am especially excited about switching over to all green cleaning products as I am expecting my first baby the end of the year and I want to keep my environment and it's as pesticide free as possible.

I am very interested in converting my cleaning products and habits to a greener version of what I currently use. I would be convinced to switch if the products were: 1) at least as effective as conventional choices, 2) easy to use, 3) moderately priced, and 4) available at my favorite store - Whole Foods! :D

hi there! I am turning over a new leaf everywhere in my life! I have learned so much about non-green products that it is scary. I plan on throwing out ALL chemical, non green products-but that is an expensive task. This would go a long way to help insert better products into our home with three young children! THank you for doing this!

We are green at heart and need to be more in our home. Our two year old son is having his one year anniversary of being on a ventilator and thriving. He is the reason to keep our house toxin free and clean. Any chemicals he could react from. The ventilator with tracheostomy. We have three kiddos and a home we have built. We Would use these products to keep our house a home of chemical free cleanliness :) with all the bills we have become self sustaining by buying chicks we will organically raise for meat and a greenhouse which is our first year! We would like to add a greenHome to it :) thank you for considering us :) Rafe,Mary,hannah,henry and lucien

I am a mother of 2 young children. Every time I clean, there bathroom especially, I feel the need to switch over to green products. Just using what I use now and smelling the fumes as I clean makes me realize the importance of how bad it is for your health and the environment. I do anything I can to help keep the earth green for the future of my children. Using green cleaning products I know will help. It is hard to know which product is good and which is not. Getting a jump start on these products will for sure help me.

We are a green family. We recycle every month and reduce as much as possible. I am inspired by my kids, we are about to have our second child that we are doing cloth diapers on. So what better way to go green for their health and the planets with cleaning products.
