Scott Naturals Giveaway: Your Fave Green Tip: 2 Winners!

According to industry surveys focusing on ‘green’ household products usage, as many as 86 percent of consumers have expressed an interest, with 41 percent saying they are very interested in using green products at home.

To help these consumers take that “green step” at home, Kimberly-Clark Corporation created Scott Naturals – a family of bath tissue, towels, napkins and flushable wipes that deliver quality, performance and environmental benefits, at a good value.

The idea behind these products is that it’s green done right, and for affordable prices. To that end New Media Strategies sent us some products to try. The toilet paper and napkins both surprised me with their quality and lack of recycled feel. I like to help out the environment and would definiately buy these at the store if the price was comparable. The paper towels I wasn’t that impressed with as they felt a little too harsh for my soft hands! All in all though I was happy with the line of products and happier yet that they’re an affordable green alternative.

The folks over at Scott have given me some to giveaway. You’ll win: Scott Naturals gift bags which includes a reusable tote filled with SCOTT Naturals product coupons, a reusable water bottle, green light bulbs, and cleaning products from Clorox Green Works. There will be TWO winners!

**So how do you win? All you’ve got to do is leave a comment below telling me your favourite green tip.
**Want more ways to win? Each of these need a separate comment to be counted!
Blog about the contest on your site or tweet or Facebook about it and lemme know. That’s THREE more entries!!!
** Want yet one more way? Subscribe to my email feeds or follow me. If you’re already a subscriber and you tell me, you get an extra entry. If you’re not, subscribe and then lemme know to get an extra entry!

Contest closes on Sunday October 11th at midnight and the winner will be picked randomly (by random.org) and announced on Monday October 12th. Don’t forget to leave a way for me to contact you!

I blog with integrity: I was not monetarily compensated to try this product but was given it for free and am offering one to my readers.

  5. I like to reuse the plastic containers food comes in for a variety of things. For example, yogurt & pudding cups are great for starting seedlings in the spring. (I gently poke a hole in the bottom of the container with a nail to prevent the delicate seedlings from being water logged.) Larger ones (such as from whipped cream) can even be "pots" for my container garden on my porch! Another favorite is to use leftover Parmesan cheese containers to store everything from little toys like my daughter's Barbie shoes & tiny accessories or my son's legos to organizing the nails, screws, nuts, & bolts in the garage. (: The great thing about the Parmesan cheese containers is that they are usually see through and you can easily see the contents and then just as easily scoop all the little things back into it! (:

  6. Instead of using my brakes a lot, I just coast!

  7. Here is my fave green tip for refrigerators: It's easy for those dials to get knocked out of whack by oversized tubs of leftovers or marauding children or houseguests, so make sure you have the temperature set optimally in your appliances.

    You should consult with your manufacturer, but in general the EPA recommends keeping refrigerators at 37 degrees F and freezers at 3 degrees. Anything colder is probably overkill, and a waste of energy.

    That's important, because refrigerators and freezers use about a sixth of home electricity.

    If you are not sure if the internal temps are actually correct? Place a weather thermometer inside to check the temperature and adjust the dials until you get the desired results.

  12. I subscribe, you can use vinegar, dish soap and water for a great all purpose cleaner, I find it cost effective and good at getting up grime.

  13. If you buy bottled pop make sure to cut apart the plastic ring holder. You don't want that to get stuck around an animals neck. Also use reusable bags each time you shop. Super easy and way cuter than plastic ones.

    I have 2 little girls that have a lot of spills and I was throwing out a ton of paper napkins. So one day I had a thought…I had an abundance of terry wash cloths so I decided to gather all of the white and cream colored ones and use them as napkins on my table. They save me $ becuase I don't buy paper napkins anymore, they are way better at cleaning up spills, and I wash them when they get all used and soiled, and no more napkins in the landfills. I keep about 10 of them in rotation, stacked on the kitchen table. The kids like them way better too.

  191. We walk where we can and take reusable bags and backpacks to the store. Backpacks make it easier to carry heavy items too!

  192. My favorite green tip is the easiest, energy efficient light bulbs–also brita water filters–no more bottled water ever!!

  198. We use pea-gravel as cat litter instead of regular cat litter. There are great how-to's on the net – but it's easy to do and saves not only money, but the landfills – can you imagine how many tons of cat litter are thrown away every day?!

  200. Use half the recommended detergent when doing your laundry. The earth will be greener AND you'll save money. Plus, your clothes will even last longer and you'll have less residual detergent left in them. Your clothes DO NOT need what is recommended on the bottle. Happy washing!

    I signed up for your email at last weeks MOPS. Thanks for speaking!

    The best "green" tip I know is just to buy less stuff! My friends and family love to read, so we trade books all the time (we usually get them at garage sales). We also use the curlicue lightbulbs, and have reusable bags for the stuff we have to buy. Thank you!

    I recycle everything I possibly can and have more items in my recycle boxes than garbage in my cans! I also give away items locally using freecycle/reuseit groups, thrift stores, and local charities. Thanks for having this great contest! angelynn99@aol.com

    My fav advice: unplug electronics when they're not in use, recycle papers, plastics and aluminum, use cloth grocery bags, CFLs and energy efficient air conditioner, freecycle and donate items, switch to eco friendly soaps and cleaning products (vinegar and baking soda!), biodegradable doggie bags, etc. Walk, big or use public transportation. Consider composting, especially worm composting or bokashi. Buy local and organic. Lord, so much you can do!

  219. Start off with less waste! Choose products that are minimally packaged!

    I use cold water when I wash most clothes. It saves on the energy to heat water. I don't use plastic water bottles and have a filter for our drinking water.

    My green tip would be recycling. I recycle my bottles and cans and I get some money back. You know the deposit money you pay at the store well you get that back. And you help the environment. It is kind of like a little savings account.

    Thanks for the giveaway… We have all our electronics i.e. TV, computers, printers, etc. hooked up to smart power strips that stop "vampire" power drain, the wasted "always on" standby electricity use of most plugged in devices, even if they are switched "off".
