March - Go Green. Giveaway.

Monthly “Clean Up” Giveaway!!!!

I’ve decided to make this a monthly giveaway to do my part in helping the environment! Have you thought about "going green" but you didn't know where to start? Which products do I use? Are they more expensive in concentrate form? Which company to purchase products from, grocery store or a direct selling company? And last but not least, do green cleaners really work? Those were my exact questions as well.

Here's a great example of what you may not know about household cleaners. Take a look at this video called Toxic Brew. It was done by a Toronto news crew: http://www.theglobalsuccessteam.net/resources/wmv/toxic_Brew.html.

In my search for a non-toxic cleaning line, I found a wonderful company to purchase products from. I was introduced to this awesome line called Get Clean by Kristin Grayner, a Shaklee Independent Distributor. She decided to become a Shaklee Distributor because of this non-toxic line of cleaners. She wanted to make a difference for families and for the environment. Her mission, and one that I agree with, is to speak with families about the toxins they are innocently bringing into their homes through household cleaners. Not only has she helped the environment within homes, but she has affected the outside environment as well.

Every time someone purchases a Get Clean Starter Kit to convert their entire home in one shot, they are eliminating 108 pounds of packaging waste from landfills, eliminating 248 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions and it's the equivalent of planting 10 trees. One of the nice things about using these products is once you get rid of all those undesirable cleaners you may have in your home, you won't have to replace them with 27 more. You'd have to spend more than $3,400 in store bought cleaners, to get the same amount of clean that you do with the Starter Kit!

These products were featured on America’s favorite day time talk show 5 times last year and are considered a “favorite thing!”

If you'd like to enter into a national drawing for $250.00 worth of free products, you can do so at www.goshaklee.info, password XE88705. You need to watch the videos to be entered into the drawing. Shaklee will then choose someone each month! GOOD LUCK! Please disregard the automated e-mail you receive from the system, Kristin will thank you personally for your entry.

If you'd like a free sample of Basic H2, you can send a message directly to Kristin Grayner at graynerfamily@gmail.com. You can visit her website at www.PowerfulClean.com.
Through this blog, you can enter the win a bottle of Basic H2 (windows/mirrors and all-purpose cleaning), a 3-pack of spray bottles and a box of the vegetable based Dryer Sheets, which are recyclable! - Just leave me a comment with: your name, email, and why you MUST win. Two winners will be picked!

Be sure to check back March 24th, 2008 to see if you were the lucky winner!

I'd love to win this, because I need to go more organic with the cleaners, especially since I have a 2 year old in the house. Thanks for the giveaway. :)

Lilith Silvermane said...

Why must I win?

6 kids, two doves and a dog.

I need cleaning supplies all the time, and we deep clean once a week. I'd love that option to be healthier.

Also, I need it safe and something I don't have to worry about if I don't fully clean off the residue on the high chair!!

Great giveaway!

Karin said...

I need to win because there is so much dust and dirt in the corners and everywhere! - that needs to be removed and it's almost spring cleaning time!

Momo Fali said...

My son's occupational therapist sells Shaklee products and I think I'm going to be hooked real soon.

What a wonderful giveaway! We would love to win because we have one toddler and one preschooler and lots of guests coming thru all the time (we live in FL!)! :) With the kids around, we have been trying to get all safe cleaners - this would be great to try! Thanks!

What an amazing giveaway! Fab!
I must win because I live in a household with 4 dirty, dirty boys!!! ;)

Lori said...

I can't believe that I have resorted to wanting cleaning stuff but when you live on a ranch in desert country, with 3 boys, and a cowboy that comes in with blood stained pants from cutting bulls...you NEED a good cleaning product!

Please pick me:)

I need to win because we are on a very squeaky budget. I'd love to keep the air in my house free of chemicals as well. Great giveaway! Count me in. bebemiqui82(at)yahoo(dot)com

Andrea said...

Hmmm...well, there are 2 reasons why I would love to win - #1 because we are on a tight budget (trying to pay off our house!) so I probably wouldn't "splurge" to buy this...and 2ndly because I want my home to be a safe, chemical free place for both me and my hubby...and especially our son and the baby on the way!!

windycindy said...

Hi, I would enjoy winning because I love to try new products! Also, because I am trying very hard to be more eco-conscious! My youngest son has allergy/sinus problems and many cleaning items that I use make him sneeze and cough. Please enter me in your wonderful drawing. I appreciate it.....Thanks,Cindi

Lucy said...

I have heard so many great things about these cleaning products and am dying to try them out. Our first baby is due in June and I am trying to get as many of the bad chemicals out of our house before then. Thanks.

I have heard great things about Shaklee but I have never tried it. I would love to give this product a try especially since we are trying to use natural cleaners in the house to be safer for the girls. Thank you for this wonderful chance.

First off, minimizing the toxic overload is priority number one with a little guy running around! Secondly, if Oprah MUST have this I MUST have this...I must, must, I must decrease the DUST!!!!
Great giveaway, thanks!
