If you’ve caught onto our giveaway schedule around here, we usually post a giveaway every other Monday morning. While today wouldn’t ordinarily be “a giveaway day”, we’re throwing in an extra one to prolong Ashley’s birthday weekend! In the spirit of her birthday, we’re including two of her favorite things: cleaning supplies (yes, she’s that kind of crazy) and Real Simple magazine.
Last month, in collaboration with Real Simple and 350.org, Seventh Generation launched their Cleanhouse Challenge, an interactive experience designed to educate people like you and me about keeping a clean, green, and healthy house. Take the Cleanhouse Challenge to unlock coupons, Facebook badges, and useful eco-friendly cleaning tips. Once you tour the whole “house”, you earn a $10 donation to 350.org from Seventh Generation. Pretty cool!
Ash and I have been using Seventh Generation cleaning products for about a year. We really love the idea of cleaning with natural ingredients. Admittedly, before we started using them, we were skeptical that they’d actually get things clean clean, since they are natural. But, they do! In reality, things cleaned with natural cleaning products are actually cleaner in some ways, since the products are environmentally friendly and free of toxins.
Here’s one of the interesting tips we’ve learned while clicking around the Cleanhouse Challenge… Most conventional dish soaps are made of 75% petroleum-based ingredients, while Seventh Generation dish soaps are 95% plant-based. Think about it this way… (as mentioned in this video) if everyone in the US would replace one 25 oz. bottle of conventional dish soap with one 25 oz. bottle of Seventh Generation dish soap, that would save 125,000 barrels of oil, which could heat 7,200 homes for an entire YEAR. That’s pretty crazy!
Today, the folks behind the Cleanhouse Challenge are giving THREE readers Seventh Generation Prize Packs. Each Prize Pack includes three specialty surface cleaners, dish cleaning soap and laundry detergent packs. We’re also throwing in a 1-Year subscription to Real Simple magazine (for you or a friend, if you already have a subscription). Here’s how to enter…
