Give Away and Review of Ecostore USA brand eco-friendly cleaners!


Meijer is carrying a new line of eco-friendly, plant-based household cleaning products and they want you to try them!

They are as effective as the leading supermarket brands. I got to try the all purpose cleaner and the laundry detergent. The all purpose cleaner works great on kitchen and bathroom counters. I didn't like it as well on mirrors. It doesn't have a harsh smell - nor any harsh cleaners. All of the ingredients are plant-based, like coconut and lemon. I like that I can use it around my new baby and not have to worry about him breathing in the toxic fumes.

They also have dish washing liquid and automatic dishwasher detergent. I love that they have a non-toxic toilet bowl cleaner! I haven't been able to find one.

Ecostore USA also carries natural body and baby care products. They also carry pet care products that let you spoil your pets with our nourishing, rich blends of ingredients and show them how much you care by reducing their exposure to unhealthy chemicals.

All of their products are made from plant and mineral-based ingredients, free of toxic chemicals that bring people closer to nature with non-toxic, environmentally safe solutions that also help to reduce their carbon footprint. Their products also help to ensure value for the dollar for you the customers.

It can be expensive to buy natural or organic products but they’ve found a way to safely super-concentrate their formulations. The super-concentrates means that a little really does go a long way - saving you money by cutting down significantly on cost per use.

Want to purchase some?

As mentioned, Meijer launched this product in their stores back in February - so you should be able to find it excusively at your local Meijer.

If you want to try these new products, now is the time. There is a $1 printable coupon for any one Ecostore product here. Also, in the month of March, if you buy an EcoStore product you will receive a Catalina coupon for $2 off your next purchase, making this a fabulous bargain.

Don't have a Meijer near you? You can also purchase all of Ecostore's products online HERE.

while it may not sound overly green, we make our own soda. it cuts down on the plastic bottle we use and the amount of greenhouse gas emitted to get the soda to us.

We keep extra cloth towels and small laundry basket under the sink to use instead of paper towels. Also use cloth napkins with personalized napkin rings so we can reuse our own cloth napkin if it isn't soiled. MKW

My hubby composts and is hoping to make a rain barrel this weekend to reduce urban runoff.

Sheri said...

We do our laundry in cold water
whenever possible to cut down on the energy used to heat the water. We also let our dishes air dry in the dishwasher instead of using the "hot dry" option. I have just started making my own cleaners, so I would love to try this green product :)

I just filled an old water bottle with rocks and some water and put it in the toilet tank so we save water when flushing.

At our house we recycle anything and everything. And I make my own household cleaner.

I sewed my own cloth napkins so that we won't use paper ones anymore!

Jena said...

So far, my greenness has started in the laundry room using perfume free detergent. I've also scrubbed my house with vinegar and baking soda and plan on ridding my house of all chemical cleaners next month!

MrsAdams06 said...

We use microfiber cloths in our swiffer sweeper instead of the throwaway cloths. It reduces waste- and its cheaper.

Jenny S. said...

We have a garden in our backyard and just planted squash, green beans, spinach, and okra. Can't wait to have fresh veges again!

Tiffany said...

We use the resuable bags at the grocery store/commissary and just about anwhere else I go. I keep them in my car so I always have a few.

I also added you on facebook!

Teresa said...

In order to see if I have any craft ability I have started working with using old magazines and I make bowls out of them by folding and arranging the pages of the magazine and then apply a varnish to the finished "bowl". I guess this is a bit of recycling.

Nanci said...

Let's see. We do alot, but the two main things we do are have a compost pile and grow our own garden.

We use cloth diapers and cloth wipes. We usually hang them to dry instead of using the dryer too!

Sarah said...

I've eliminated paper towel! I never thought I could do it, but we quite painlessly replaced it with a couple of dishtowels per day, and since I'm doing laundry anyway there's no additional waste.

We re-use garbage bags, grocery bags, etc. Our outdoor trash smells like raw sewage when we open it beause of this, but hey- it's all for the environment!

We recycle everything and anything we can. I think we have more recycleables out at the curb on pickup day than anyone on our street. Thanks for the review and giveaway!

I wash left over aluminum foil and then toss it in the dryer. It removes all the static cling from my clothes and I am not just tossing out the aluminum foil! No need for dryer sheets!

Beth C said...

We recycle and reuse just about everything. Plastic water bottles are refilled with water or another drink for a "to-go" beverage, cloth towels instead of paper towels, plastic grocery bags are also reused.

One of the green things I'm trying to do is save my food scraps for composting. If I can remember to turn the compost barrel I should have some great fertilizer.

I'm still not as "green" as I'd like to be. But we are recycling almost anything we can at my house. I'm using my own reusable bags at the grocery instead of taking their plastic ones. And I'm trying to use more green cleaners here!

I blog every week on Thursday about Going Green. We reuse just about everything at our house. My favorite is our compost bin in the backyard. We recycle our household wastes like vegetable peels, coffee grounds and even dryer lint into the best fertilizer made - all natural!

I recycle all my plastic and want to start using "green" cleaning products.
