Win a 20 oz Aluminum Water bottle!



I love to drink water, unfortunately I DON'T love to drink water from plastic cups that much because I swear I can taste the plastic in the water. Plus, plastic cups don't keep the water cold for very long so I am constantly getting up to get a fresh cup.

Here in Maine, we recycle plastic bottles so I do buy bottled water but it can be an expensive habit, and again we have the plastic factor come into play. I haven't drank water from the tap in quite a long time-even though it does have obvious benefits. The reason is simple, one day I went to the tap to get some water and it had a fishy odor. Phew! That was enough to turn me away-however, at my workplace we have a water cooler filtering tap water and it isn't bad at all. The Water District has been tearing up pipes in our area and the filtered water at work still tastes great. But I have realized that I need a nice water bottle-not one of those plastic ones that gets smelly after a few washes or already stinks when you first open it. So when I saw that Avon Liiv Botanicals had a 20 oz aluminum water bottle on sale, I knew I had to buy it.

And lucky for you all, I happened to get an extra. It even has a neat design on it, which is pretty darn cool. They only had the 20 oz size, but that is perfect for me. I haven't used it yet, since I just got it only yesterday-however I was a little disappointed to see the made in China label and sincerely hope that it is a great water bottle. So, if you wanna win one you need to do this:

Entry begins today July 31st and ends August 15th at 11:59 pm EST. yes, it is open to International readers! (since I am paying for the shipping I can do this!) Winner will be chosen by Random.org.

My first green tip is using vinegar to clean with. Between that, water, lemon juice and baking soda, you can keep a green, yet very clean house!:-)

Green Tip : Use the smaller concentrated bottles of for example Lenor or Persil(Small & Mighty) - less packaging used = less plastic wasted = less lorries on the road = less pollution = My Green Tip :) :) :)

Green tip - ditch the paper towels and use rags.

Try washing your windows with Old News Papers. This cuts down on cutting trees. Plus you get two uses out of one item.

Save printer ink, paper and money by setting your printer to draft mode and printing on both sides of the paper.

I have banned the use of plastic bags in my house! It took several months to gather up enough totes so I could do that ( without buying them cause you know I'm cheap!) But I finally did it and I love my totes! Without all those bags shoved under the sink I can actually find stuff down there! ;-) Thanks!

I've been trying to be green too. Every little bit helps. I try to make recycling a fun game for my daughter by letting her decorate the different bins.
