Envirosax Giveaway (closed)

Planet Green by Envirosax

Tomorrow is Earth Day. In our house, it’s the environmental equivalent of New Year’s Day considering how many resolutions/pledges we make to be greener.

Over the last few years, we’ve tried a few things, from buying a meat share from a nearby farm to growing many of our own vegetables to using greener cleaning products. After all, Pinterest says there’s nothing vinegar can’t do!

A couple of months ago, our garbage collector added a weekly pickup for curbside recycling. I was super excited when they dropped off our recycling bin – it was the same size as our garbage can!

And we’ve been filling it up every single week. The amount of junk mail we get in this neighborhood is borderline disturbing.

And if you’ve been around here for more than 5 seconds, you know that one of my favorite “let’s be a little greener” things is Envirosax. No more fighting for space under the kitchen sink with that plastic bag crammed full of more plastic bags, the one you keep telling yourself that you’ll recycle “next time.”

Want a chance to win a set of your very own? Simply answer this question in the comments below: What is your current “be greener” goal?

We’re (ahem, I am) going to be trying more of those cleaning tips I’ve seen on Pinterest.

Update: The winner is Meighan with comment #73. Thanks for sharing all of your goals, it has given us plenty of great ideas!

You can earn up to 4 extra entries by:
– Leaving a separate comment below that you follow us on Twitter.
– Leaving a separate comment below that you like us on Facebook.
– Leaving a separate comment below that you subscribe to our RSS feed.
– Leaving a separate comment below that you subscribe or our email newsletter.

Good luck!

The fine print:
– Maximum of five (5) entries per person.
– Giveaway ends at 11:59pm (Texas time!) on 4/27.
– Winner will be selected by one of those cold, soulless, unfeeling random number generator thingies and announced on this post after selected.
– Winners will receive a 5-piece set of Envirosax in style Planet Green (maximum retail value of prize = $30).
– Prize must be claimed within 7 days or it will be forfeited.
– If the winning comment is an “extra entry” comment, it will be subject to verification.
– Prize can only be shipped to a US address.
– All prizes are provided by Confections of a Foodie Bride, unless stated otherwise.
– Official giveaway rules can be found here.

I like that you mentioned junk mail, because my greener goal is to stop getting it in the first place. It creates so much waste, even if most of it gets recycled. I’ve started calling companies and demanding to be taken off mailing lists. I’m trying to convince my husband to do the same for the mail that comes to him. This website has also helped with the process: https://www.catalogchoice.org/

I am really conscious about what actually gets put out in our trash because we have a limited amount of landfill space where I live. My current “be greener” goal is to plan my shopping trips a little better so I am not wasting gas. We also found a place that takes plastic bottles caps for recycling so I have been saving them since the bottle people will only take the bottles.

We do our best to be green, which literally means lugging our recycling to the best friends house 1 block over since our community doesn’t recycling. Alas, we still buy mass produced 2 gallons at a time, milk from Costco. I would like to change that habit, but 1st I need to get over the sticker shock and find a way to make it just as convenient as our old habits. I mean I have no problem buying meat and vegetables at the price that market dictates so the growers and producers can make a living wage and threat their animals and land with the respect. But the milk I balk at, why or why?

I’ve been trying to cut back on meat and dairy. Trying to eat a plant based whole foods diet after growing up in cattle country (Montana) has been difficult, but even limiting my consumption has helped me feel better. Cows are little land hogs, and the residual effects on the earth due to their sheer numbers to keep fast food companies and carnivores is staggering. I love steak, roast and burgers but it’s become our primary food source as Americans and I wanted to get back to the “Farm” and enjoy fruits, vegetables, and grains.

I have a few things I am working on… one of which is switching to primarily re-usable bags (I want paper occasionally to clean out litter boxes!). Another one I’m working on is making homemade cleaning products. Not only is it better for the environment, but with a mobile child now, he’s getting in to everything, especially with his mouth, so the less chemicals around him the better!

I try to recycle, but it is not easy where I live because you have to transport your recycling to a part of town I never visit, but I do recycle at work because my job is big into sustainability initiatives.
