Welcome to my first Eco-Friendly Wednesday. Every week come here and see what I am trying to do to make the world a little more "green" you will find useful advice, some reviews and some giveaways. I do hope that find my tips useful, I am sure none of them we be new ground breaking ideas but my goal is to help you become a little more "green".
We hear A LOT about Eco-Friendly cleaning products and to be honest I love having the option as I do not always buy "green". I know what you are thinking but I am also a very avid coupon clipper and sometimes I get cleaning items for FREE~that I cannot pass up. But for the most part I try to stick to the Eco-Friendly products as much as I can!
A few weeks ago I was approached by Ecostore USA asking if I would be interested in trying some of their products, of course I said yes! I had heard of Ecostore as over a year ago I won a bottle of their Baby shampoo on a blog giveaway. I can tell you that bottle lasted FOREVER, I have to say well over 6 months. We jokingly called it "the never ending bottle".
Here is little information on Ecostore, taken from their web site:
Our eco friendly, plant-based household cleaning products are as effective as the leading supermarket brands, and our body and baby care ranges are gentle on your skin and are simply beautiful to use.
All of our products are made from plant- and mineral-based ingredients, free of toxic chemicals that bring people closer to nature with non-toxic, environmentally safe solutions that also help to reduce our carbon footprint. Our products also help to ensure value for the dollar for our customers. We know it can be expensive to buy natural or organic products but we’ve found a way to safely super-concentrate our formulations. Our super-concentrates means that a little really does go a long way - saving you money by cutting down significantly on cost per use.
"No Nasty Chemicals" is the foundation of the entire product line and philosophy of Ecostore. CLICK HERE to watch a video for more information. You will not regret it I promise!
The Auto Dish Powder worked great! I have tried several other Eco-Friendly dish detergents and have been less then impressed with SOME of them, just a reminder that not all things are created equal. This dish powder did the trick, I even left some food on a few of the plates just to see if it would blast off the yucky bits, and it did!
The Laundry powder was the best! I am in love with this stuff! My biggest test was my Kindergartner's white uniform shirts. I only own 2 of them as white tends to not stay white for very long when worn by ANY member of my family especially my 6 year old. I was quite impressed with how bright white they were and most of the stains were gone. I say most as there were a few already that were very set in, those are NEVER coming out. So my whites were white and my colors bright, this is going to be a permanent fixture in my Laundry Room. It is uniform approved.
Right now Ecostore is offering 50% off everything in their baby line PLUS when you spend $25.00 you get FREE shipping! Now that is a great deal.
