"5 Tips on Easy Ways To Go Green at Home, Work and Play" and WIN Eco Prizes From Scott Naturals

Yesterday my youngest asked me when is Earth day which was a great reminder to me that it is officially Earth Month and time we as a family think about additional ways we can go GREEN.  So, I have joined forces with Scott Naturals Brand for the next four weeks to share with you more ideas on Going Green as a family and offering TWO Eco friendly Giveaways.(see below).
This week we have “5 Tips on Easy Ways To Go Green at Home, Work and Play”

1. Eco-friendly Shopping

Plastic takes 1,000 years to decompose and paper bags use 14 million trees a year. Instead, an easy eco-friendly tip is to use cloth grocery bags.

Buy Products In Bulk

Purchasing your everyday products in bulk saves in multiple ways. You spend less time driving back and forth to the store, using less fuel to get there. Plus, it cuts down on packaging significantly.  
3.  Lunches on the GO

Use lunch boxes instead of paper bags and plastic containers for sandwiches that can be reused instead of plastic bags.

Go Cloth 

Give up one paper napkin a day, and you’ll save a billion pounds of paper waste in landfills a year. Use cloth napkins instead

Buy reusable bottles

to take with you on the go, now you can refill it from a tap and avoid buying bottled water. Stainless steel is a good choice, because you don’t have to worry about the potentially toxic chemicals from the plastic bottles.

This month 24/7 MOMS has also joined together with Scott Naturals with TWO giveaways:
