Friday Favorites- Giveaway!

I was really excited when I received this "spark" from MyBlogSpark. I've always wanted to try Seventh Generation Diapers, but they just were never in my price range at the time. I try to be quite green where I can, so I was very excited about this. Seventh Generation has redesigned their diapers and they wanted you guys to have a sneak peak at what you can expect.

Their Free & Clear diapers do not include chlorine processing, fragrances, latex and petroleum based lotions. With processed chlorine-free wood pulp in Free & Clear diapers, Seventh Generation also makes certain that no chlorine is released into the environment during the Totally Chlorine Free whitening process of the diapers and training pants.

What is equally exciting is Seventh Generation has also reduced the size of the plastic packaging, meaning less landfill waste. In fact, the packaging can now be recycled at local supermarkets where plastic bag recycling collection boxes are available. (Publix has plastic bag recycling at their stores).

These diapers feel and work like any other diaper, just without all the yucky stuff! If you would like to try them, they are offering my readers a $2/1 Seventh Generation Product that can be found here. They're also giving onne lucky reader a prize pack that contains one package of diapers (Choice of size 2, 4, or 5)!

    I love my cloth diapers and I wash them in my high efficiency machine and then dry them on a drying rack so that I use less energy by not drying them AND the sun naturally bleaches out any stains!  What a great bonus!  When we are traveling and for overnight, we still use our Seventh Generation size 4s though! :)

  10. One of my favorite green tips is: Use canvas bags when shopping! Leave the plastic behind and if you do use them - recycle them at Publix or Walmart or wherever they have plastic bag recycle bins.

  22. I thought I'd save space and put everything in one post. Then I read the instructions over and realized each one had to be posted seperately. : / Right? :)

  23. My favorite "green" tip: When you're waiting for the water to heat up, don't let the water go down the drain. We collect it and use it to water our garden. :)

  26. Green tip - We use cloth faux paper towels and napkins. Cuts on waste and we just throw them in the wash with our clothes.

  28. Not sure if this counts as a "green tip" or not, but try to save all the food you would normally throw into the garbage!  Instead, compost it and use it to feed your garden!  This not only nourishes the garden, but helps send less to the landfill!
