Green Giveaway – Bissell, Brita, Tide and Green Works

If you’re like me, you’re taking baby steps towards a greener lifestyle.  Every little bit helps right?  I have a long ways to go and I’m sure many of you do too so to help, As one of the Eleven Moms of Walmart, I have brought a nice little green package to the table for you!

Four products that one winner will receive are:

  • 1) Bissell Little Mean (Green Machine) Floor Cleaner – Less packaging, PVC free tanks & hoses, and is great for cleaning spills & stains.
  • 2) Brita Water Pitcher – Love ours! Great way to reduce using bottled water.
  • 3) Green Works Cleaners – Great cleaners that do work, are eco-friendly and even include some biodegradable wipes.
  • 4) Tide Coldwater – Huge fan of Tide here. Using Tide coldwater will help save  energy & money.  Just like it says, you’ll use it with cold water instead of hot and clothes come out very clean with the added cost to your bill!

    the best part of the world today
    at least from what I’ve seen,
    is that so many people really care
    about living life more green.

  2. Dezi says

    I commented on your amazing photos of your little cowboy outside. I love them! Wish I could get some like that of my boys…

  3. Dezi says

    I subscribed via Reader, but it was a while ago and I don’t know if it only counts if I subscribe at this time… but either way… love your site. :)

  4. Nadine L says

  5. McKim says

    My kids think I’m mean
    when I make them clean
    but would think it real keen
    if I were the prize winning queen!

  6. Alicia Webster says

  7. Dianne F says

    “The hurrier I go, the behinder I get”
    That’s an old saying I live by each day.
    My little place on this good earth
    Is in a constant state of disarray
    Amid the turmoil, though, honestly..I clean
    With 3 little grandkids, 2 dogs & 2 cats
    I use products that are pure & “green”
    With “gardening” tots, this past weekend
    With muddy clothes & dirt on my floors
    All these great products would be my “friends”

  8. Gary Collister says

    The only regret that I have for all of us is that the “Green” revolution should have begun a long time ago, but better late than never.

  9. Estelle says

    The Bissell Little Mean Machine
    Is a great choice if you’re wanting to go green
    Tide Coldwater detergent is the best
    To give your hot water heater a rest..

    Okay, that’s all I’ve got. I’m for sure not a poet but I love all the prizes and you know it! Geesh, that’s corny, too.

  10. says

    I commented on “Developing a Photography Workflow, the Basics.” That post really helped me get motivated to do something with all my pics!

  12. Mellisa W. says

  13. Melissa says

    I’m “green with envy” over these green products.
    I need to win so I my house can be “green clean”.

    Okay, I’m terrible with rhymes. That didn’t even come close to being a rhyme!

  14. Margaret Smith says

    I love my house to be nice and clean,
    I’m diving right in and going green.
    I’m thinking of my kids futures and dreams,
    So I really don’t mind, making the present green.

  15. says

    Household chores are plenty of work
    I slave all day trying to keep the place clean-
    hubby relaxes and says with a smirk,
    “There must be an easier way, that has yet to be seen.”

    As he watches TV, I shoot him an angry glare
    and keep on spraying, wiping, dusting and sweeping
    with the smell of chemicals hanging in the air
    soon enough he starts to choke, his eyes begin weeping-

    “Big changes are ahead.” he says as he takes my hand
    “But honey, whatever do you mean?”
    “A new revolution is taking over the land-
    we need to protect our environment by going green.”

    Eager for his help, we head to the store.
    Wonderful healthy alternatives, with a reasonable price.
    I can now clean my walls, counters, bathroom and floor-
    and DREAM of hubby helping me out-now wouldn’t THAT be nice?!

  16. AmandaK says

    I know I’m part of a team because I’m trying to go green. There’s nothing you can do, there’s nothing you can say to make me change my way. Green is the way to go. That’s the way the river flows.


  17. Valerie says

    Going green
    Can be hard
    But being clean
    Is worth your guard

    Eh, does that even make sense? Haha I tried

  18. Erica C. says

    I’m lean, I’m mean, and I’m trying to be more green!
    thanks! I’d love to try the filter especially!

  19. Jill e says

    going green is easier than it seems.
    Start with water and light bulbs
    and soon your house will gleem.

    That was lame..but worth a try!

  20. susan varney says

  21. True says

    Jean, Jean, you’re looking very green.
    Was it something in the ice cream,
    or that vat of Brylcreme?
    Jean Jean you’re making a make a scene.
    We all can’t be lean, come off of that beam.
    Have the frat boys call in the Dean
    The splat that she’ll make is going to be obscene.
    God help us all with a drama queen.
    Jean, Jean…

  22. Lauralee Hensley says

    I like beans that are green,
    but my husband does not like to eat green beans,
    and thinks I pretend that I’m a green bean feign,
    but really they don’t have many calories for American or Sabean
    and can help anyone dieting become lean.

    Orange and green don’t rhyme.

  28. Jaque says

    I believe that green is definitely the color of pristine….I know it’s awful. :-(

    Thank you for reading my feeble attempt at poetry…or rhyming. :-)

  29. Beverly West says

    After a winters sleep, beneath the sullen cold ground, green grasses again sway, flowers glistening with morning dew,
    The children play, the horses neigh, shades of green, petal blossoms drifting softly past me, echos of past songs of old, whisper their memories.

  30. shelley says

  34. chris says

  35. April says

    There’s alot of green to be seen
    The trees, bushes, grass…everything is so green
    I look into the mirror, and what do I see?
    Green eyes staring back at me
    looking like the depths of the sea
    I look down at the scar on my knee
    and remember that tree I climbed when I was only three
    I turn to the window next to me
    and watch as the sun’s rays stream through the leaves
    The birds hop and climb through the trees
    and they look like they are all admiring the green!
    Oh how wonderful green can be?!
    Don’t you agreed with me?

  36. Teresa C says

    Larens last blog post..what would you do?

  41. Linda says

    You’r in the groove if you walk and move

    Of going lean and keen as a Green Machine.

  42. Mary Marlatt says

  54. Jennifer Short says

    There once was a Bissell that is green,
    the spiffiest, niftiest vacuum I’ve ever seen,
    In a jiffy it swept up all the dust
    I love it, not I’m in lust.
    And it’s just a cleaning machine!

  55. says

    I love green and hope I’m still alive to see when the bennefits of our green efforts pay off. I know that even if I don’t, I’ve made a conscience effort to help our planet and future children lives.

  56. BRIAN E. says

    If more people would just go GREEN !!!
