Green Products We Love (and a Chance to Win!)10:19 AM
Earth month isn't the only time to think about buying earth-friendly. It is, however, a perfect time to share what we love (and how you can score some awesome green products for your home and family!) See what the Walmart 11 Moms were able to learn about in celebration of Earth Month -- and see how you can win all of the fabulous products featured below!
Brita Water Pitcher - I had one of these when I first got married. At the time, it was "the" perfect wedding gift, and my husband and I drank much more water when we could conveniently filter tap water and pour it from the durable pitcher. The newest Brita Pitcher is just as easy to use, a bit more modern in design, and every bit as practical as the original. The built-in digital indicator lets me know at a glance if it's time to change the filter, and even my daughter can refill it (making it impossible for anyone to get by with using the last of the water and putting an empty pitcher back in the fridge.) The retail value of the Brita Pitcher starts around $29.99.Bissell Little Green Floor Cleaner - This is another product that we were not unfamiliar with. The original version of the cleaner wasn't nearly as eco-friendly, but it was still really great way to clean carpets and upholstery. What I love about this newer model is that it comes with considerably less packaging. It also features PVC-free tanks and hoses! With just a few minutes and some of the Bissell branded cleaner, you can easily remove stains and grime from your couch or those icky floor mats in the minivan. The retail value of the Bissell Little Green Floor Cleaner is $74.88
White Cloud "Green Earth" Paper Towels - I've used White Cloud products on a number of occasions, but have been shying away from using any kind of paper towel lately. I have been thinking about the impact that they have on the environment (and how much they cost.) The "green" variety of White Cloud Paper Towels, however, has me learning to love paper towels again. Made from 100% recycled fibers, they are just as strong and thick as the regular variety, but they have the earth in mind. I can feel better during those times when "pass the cloth napkin" just doesn't cut it -- like spaghetti dinners! (They also make Green Earth toilet paper!)
Clorox Green Works Cleaners - We've already shared our opinion of the GreenWorks wipes (yippee!), but did you know that there was an entire line of the stuff? Yepper... we love the sprays, too!
Tide Coldwater - Already love Tide? Thinking of using less hot water in your loads (to save energy and money?) You can get the same great clean you've loved from Tide, with less impact on the environment! We've used Tide Coldwater to get grimy stuff really clean, and my washing machine can sit on the "cold" cycle all day long!
