Eco Friendly Products & Giveaway!!

Several weeks ago I was contacted by Ecostore USA to try some of their products. Of course I was completely thrilled with the opportunity and very excited to try some new products that were also eco friendly.

Curious about the company I browsed the website and was impressed to learn that the EcoStore was founded 15 years ago by a couple in New Zealand. Since then they have created a business that offers green products with "no nasty chemicals." "The team at ecostore USA loves making a difference in people’s lives. ecostore USA does not compromise on performance, so customers can be assured of the efficacy of the products - they truly work. We offer more than 100 products, each one meeting the most stringent environmental and sustainability standards. The guiding principle of every formulation is and will always be that the end product must not only be good for the user, but good for the planet."

I first tried the Pure Oxygen Whitener. No sooner did the products arrive and we had our first soiled shirt. Lilly accidently spilled red juice on Gage's onies (a Janie & Jack one, go figure!!) and I thought for sure it wasn't coming out. So I made a little paste and rubbed it on the spots and then let it soak. It started to take the color out immediately and after a couple hours, it was gone completely. I was totally amazed and happy!!

I also tried the Citrus Spray Cleaner. I was curious to see how well it cleaned and how it smelled (I don't know about you, but I hate the toxic smells of most household cleaners). After spraying the cleaner, I was pleasantly surprised by the very light smell and how well it cleaned my sink. I liked it so much that I cleaned the whole kitchen and even the kids bathroom!!

Here's the exciting news!!!
The Ecostore wanted me to offer my readers an opportunity to try their products as well. So, they are allowing one winner the chance to try two products for FREE! The contest will start today (Monday, July 20th) and go until next Monday. To enter, simply visit their site The EcoStore USA and then leave me a comment stating which two items you would choose (please be sure to include your email). If you'd like a second opportunity to win, you can also post about this giveaway on your blog, facebook, twitter, etc. and post the link under another comment. The winner will be chosen randomly on Tuesday, July 28th and will be notified by email.

Also, you can sign up for the Ecostore's No Nasty Chemicals Newsletter by visiting their blog. And of course you can follow them on Twitter at Ecostoreusa or on facebook!!
