Full Circle Giveaway for Earth Day

Happy Earth Day!

Do you have any plans to celebrate?

We’re supposed to have some iffy weather today, but I’m hoping to spend some time outside searching for strawberries, working with Nick to find a place to plant our new flowers, and sitting on the porch with a book.

If you can’t do anything else, just take a break outside.

Turn off the computer.

Leave your cell phone inside.

Flip the lights off, open your windows and give the AC or heater a break.

To help celebrate Earth Day, I’ve had the chance to try out these awesome Full Circle home products – and I am addicted already.

First – they’re gorgeous. Sleek, fun, and much prettier than what I had before.

Second – these are made from sustainable and renewable resources like bamboo and cellulose. Some of their sponges are totally biodegradable, which is crazy awesome!

Third – I get to give this set away to one of you, too!

Share the Earth-helping, house-cleaning love.

One winner will get:

Laid Back dish brush (with removable, dishwasher safe head)

Crystal Clear glass brush

Tater mate potato brush with eye remover – seriously!

Walnut sponges

To Enter: Tell more your favorite to save energy, money, time, whatever! What do you do to help make a difference?

    to help conserve energy I always turn off the lights/fan after I leave a room, we have implemented gray water lines in my house to have bath water hydrate the grass, as well as always recycling!

    I’m a stickler for turning off any lights I’m not using and I unplug a lot of things when I leave the house (especially if I’m leaving for a day or two straight)–every little bit helps!

    Great giveaway! If I’m going out, I always keep my trash in my bag if I don’t see a garbage can anywhere near by. I also reuse paper since I think it’s such a waste to not utilize both sides!

    This is a great giveaway! I’ve been slowly working to “green” all my cleaning supplies but I hadn’t even considered things like sponges and brushes. Some things I do are to recycle everything I can, use reusable or paper shopping bags, and always carry my own water bottle instead of buying bottled water.

    I always recycle. I always hang our cloths out to dry – NEVER use the dryer. I use cornstarch and water to wash our windows. I use organic ways to garden and to keep pests away from the garden like bugs, etc. to save the environment and bee population. Use the curly light bulbs. Turn lights off when not in use. Use air condition only when really, really needed. Put on extra sweater. Make a compost outside (we are lucky enough to live in the country.

    Thank you

    I save gas and money by walking to the gym! I have a desk job so the extra two mile walk (a mile each way to the gym from my house) every day is benefiting me and the environment.

    I like to refer to myself as the “light nazi”, a trait I thankfully inherited from my dad. I continually follow people around, flipping light switches to “off” if no one is in the room.

    Jessica S — April 22, 2012 at 9:16 pm

    I do all the usual things like making sure all unnecessary lights are turned off and all unused appliances are unplugged. But I also upcycle all the time! Since I am a stay-at-home mom, we reuse all sorts of containers to grow seeds to plant outside, crafts for fun and gifts, and my newest favorite item is we made a watering can for my young son using a milk carton with holes poked in the cap. It has a perfect handle, and he helps out watering our garden!

    Veronica Lambert — April 23, 2012 at 1:01 am

    I always try to have the windows open versus using the AC. I clip coupons to save money and rarely ever pay full price for things. I try to recycle as much as possible and also try to reuse things. I am conscious of water usage as well as lights. I try to little things that add up in the long run!

    jacquie — April 23, 2012 at 1:02 am

    i’m a stickler about the lights also – even at work when possible (why leave the lights on in the printer room when no one is there >95% of the time and there is natural light????). also recyle, try to combine trips using the car, keep the heat set low in the winter and high in the winter and cook predominately at the house and minimize “processed” foods for multiple reasons including thinking all that processing must use/waste lots of water.

    To help save energy, I turn off the lights when I leave a room, and I never drive anywhere if I can easily walk or bike it instead. I always recycle and do what I can to minimize my carbon footprint. The biggest thing I am doing to make a difference this year is planning the most eco-friendly and sustainable wedding I can. We’re getting hitched and going green in 6 months!

    On way I conserve energy is to keep my thermostat down a few degrees in the winter (I can always put on socks or through on my bathrobe) and up a little bit in the summer (No need for socks or a bathrobe then!) It saves energy and saves me money. i call that a win-win!

    I try to do a little of it all here and there (because a little goes a long way). I turn off lights, avoid AC as much as possible, hand wash and dry 1/4 of my clothes (saves a load a month), turn the water off during brushings, time my showers, buy in bulk…the list goes on and on!
