I love green products but can't normally afford them. We use low VOC paint, we recycle what ever we can, and I would like to make a compost pile eventually. We also have energy saver appliances and some day I will put a clothes line. My husband would love to plant a garden out back to further save costs, but we have not had the time yet. I would love to use green products because they are not only safe for the environment, but also for my kids and pets.

I can't stand conventional cleaners, they aggravate my asthma. Kinder cleaners are better for YOU and better for the environment!

My live-in Girlfriend of 4 years just found out she has skin and food allergies to over 600 things! She is now only allowed to used certain soaps, detergents, and cleaners, as well as a huge change in her diet. So we need to start using safer items in our home so her skin will not flair up and risk a trip to the ER. Having a stocked cupboard with safe items, so we can get rid of all the old dangerous stuff will definately put us on the right track, for the health and well being for the woman I love and the planet we all share.

Cleaner air, cleaner living. It really gives me a boost to use a green product; I feel like I'm contributing to our environment and my home in the best way possible! And it's great NOT to be coughing and feeling side effects from all those chemicals. I do it for my family, and I do it for me.

When I was a kid and would help my mom clean the house at home, I would always end up with a tight chest and that whistling sound. Obviously we didn't know that it was due to the fumes of the chemicals used in cleaning products. Well we know better now, and since I take care of my family today by cooking everything from scratch, organic and healthy. By exercising regularly and staying away from smokers, I also want to keep a safe environment at home using green,safe cleaning products. BUT I don't like to use vinegar so I am always looking for better solutions.

In our home, we have three young children. It is not just our Earth that we are trying to preserve, but theirs. We are also trying to teach them respect and love for this planet and all of it's inhabitants (people, animals, and plants). "Actions speak louder than words." In using green products, in our home, we help to maintain cleanliness without destroying habitats and health. Lastly, in trying to balance our budget with green products...we have to consider the cost of the damage we do with many regular products. Not easy, but worthwhile.

We switched to "green" products after our son was diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. Noone knows why this happens to children, but I feel it's due to many of the chemicals we cook and clean with. No only is it better for the environment to use these products, it is healthier to use and they work just as great as the "not so green" products!

It wouldn't take much at all.I'm doing everything else possible to make my body and home greener.I'm vegetarian(almost vegan),don't eat GMO foods,recycle,reuse and conserve,yet cleaning products have seemed to have fallen to the wayside.This would be an awesome opportunity to treat mother earth a little more kindly:) Every day is Earth day!!!

I shop at Whole Foods atleast 3x/week, take my own eco-friendly bags & would love to try the cleaners. I want my family & pets to be as safe of toxins & as healthy as possible! Living w/a house full of males (4)it is hard for them to understand what I am trying to do for them! Slowly converting them w/o them even knowing..lol Happy Earth Day!

As a teacher and a mother I want to leave the planet better than I found it. This is one simple step in that direction as I continue the quest to go completely green. I will teach it to my family & students and they will pass it on!

I LOVE the new eco cleaning products! I use Method cleaning products. I have kitties and now I don't worry about them 'discovering' while I'm cleaning. I've also switched to using old worn out t-shirts for rags for dusting and wiping. It's good to be green!

As a person who has had a lifetime of allergies and skin problems, I have tried to keep my home as chemical free as possible. Whole Foods has become my store of choice to find products that will help me reach my goal and will provide healthy options for my family. I know Whole Foods buyers seek out products to not only give me those options, but will also keep the planet clean for future generations.

I have a new grandson and I think it is important to use green products around him. I have started slowly changing over.

I used green products because I want to protect my family's health.

I think it would be if they worked as well as the other products. I'd like to try them but am afraid I would pay a lot of money and they don't work. I would like to win so that I can try them and then continue to use them if I like the way the products work.

I have slowly been converting my conventional cleaning products to the green version but it can be expensive. I'd love to have a cleaning caddy makeover so I can go green all the way and provide a safer home for my family and pets (and save the environment at the same time). Thanks for your consideration!

I'm learning more about living green and not only its good for the enviroment but its also a way to explore options in a smart eco way. Recycle, Reuse.. I always love this slogan! And above all, OUR planet is gonna thank us!

I cannot use those chlorox wipes anymore, they stink! Good to know there are options out there.

Right now, it pretty much all the cleaning products in my house are not green. I want to switch over because I don't believe the chemicals in generic cleaning products can be good for anybody or anything.

I don't mind paying just a little more (maybe $2 max) if they would do the same great job as the toxic cleaners. A lot of times, you have to try several products before you find one that works. That's money down the drain!

I chose to use green clean products to help ensure a better future for my baby girl. I don't want her exposed to toxic chemicals!

In my house I have found that we all seen to be dealing with an issue of how to get started being greener and I have tried to do a few things, reusable grocery bags and using less electricity and we only have one car, but I find I am afraid to switch my cleaners, what if they don't work as well as what I have, I would not want to have to start all over again. Winner a basket of this would give me the opportunity to try them without the damage to my household budget, and then I would know where to start when replacing all my chemical cleaners. I believe it would be better for my household and me with my lupus, to use natural stuff I am just afraid to switch!

My baby has grown into a toddler and now that she's touching everything, I want to make sure that everything she gets her hands on is clean AND safe!

I use them because I have realized that 'home' doesn't end with one's house or apartment and that there are no 'others', we are all connected. :)
