Also, don't forget to check out the event's grand prize! It's an incredible $300 gift card to MightyNest! MightyNest is a great go-to source for eco-friendly, healthful products for your home and garden. One neat thing about MightyNest is how they're giving back by doing a fundraiser known as MightyNest for Schools. The MightyNest for Schools program generously supports the school of your choice when you buy any of their high-quality, eco-friendly, healthy gear, by donating 15% of your purchase. MightyNest further engages your school community in healthy living with great tips, challenges, and pledges. For more info, visit MightyNest for Schools.

You know, part of green living is making the most of what you have and/or purchasing reusable products to replace the countless disposables our society has become accustomed to. Things like facial tissue, paper towels, paper plates, paper napkins. Now, according to the commercials, we're even supposed to ditch the hand towels in our bathrooms and replace them with disposable hand towels which are thrown away after each use. I don't know about you, but I easily wash my hands 0-15 times a day. Can you imagine how much waste it would produce if I threw away my towel each time. No thank you. I'm a hanky, rag, cloth napkin kind of grandma (old fashioned, I know) whose stomach turns every time I see commercials promoting waste.



To help you in your quest for sustainability, I have a prize package for you that includes:

  • A HankyBook -- Made in the USA from 100% certified organic cotton, the HankyBook is machine washable and dryer safe. No more toting tissues in your purse or diaper bag. Just toss a durable HankyBook in and you're ready for anything from runny noses to sloppy sweet potatoes.
  • A cloth reusable bag -- Since the bag "advertises" my book, VINEGAR FRIDAYS, I thought it only proper to include two signed copies of the book as well (one for you and one to give away). In it are ways to continue your quest for sustainability and toxin-free living.
  • A reusable water bottle and foldable water bag. Both are made of BPA-free plastic.

Enter to win this prize package with a purpose on the rafflecopter below. Easy entries. Winner must be in continental US and be 18 or over. Entries will be verified.


100% certified organic cotton
Machine washable, dryer safe
Made in U.S.A

  6. When I pack lunches and snacks we usually use Bentgo boxes which are great and have reusable silverware that snap in it. If not, we use reusable lunch bags with water bottles and sandwich bags that are reusable as well. I felt this was a great change for us to make because packing lunches can create a lot of waste!

  14. I reuse items like plastic containers and baggies, I use reusable supplies for that time of the month, I try to buy in bulk to reduce packaging, I try to walk or carpool instead of driving the car, I buy as much organic food as possible to reduce pesticide and herbicide use, I try to buy local products to reduce fuel costs, and lots of other stuff - sometimes it's just little things but it all adds up!
