If you are like me, you might be trying to gradually replace household items in your home with more eco-friendly options. Who wants to expose their children and family to harmful chemicals, so often found in traditional cleaning products?
I have also been trying for over a year now, to reduce the amount of plastic bags we bring home from the grocery store. Once I started paying attention to how many bags I was bringing my groceries home in, it was so excessive. No wonder I always ended up with what seemed liked hundreds of bags under my sink. Sometimes the bagger at the store, would use one bag for one small item.
It bothers me that we still use plastic Ziploc bags, but quite frankly, they are so easy to use. I use the gallon sizes for everything from marinades to storing art supplies in. I use the sandwich and snack sizes for the boys’ snacks on the go, and for Ryan’s school lunches.
But probably the biggest single factor for me in holding off replacing more household items is the cost. We only have one natural grocery store in our town, and paper products, etc. are pretty expensive there. My regular grocery store doesn’t have that big of a selection of eco-friendly paper, plastic, and cleaning supplies. I suspect I am like a lot of people, who would like to purchase more eco-friendly products, but can’t justify spending double, triple, or even more on them.
Fortunately, we don’t have to now. There is a fantastic company, Lets Go Green.biz, which now provides many eco-friendly household products that are affordable. In fact, after reviewing their site, many products cost less than what I have been paying for conventional items.
What makes it even more affordable, in addition to their already low prices, if you use the coupon code FRIEND during checkout, you receive an additional 25% off your order! How wonderful is that?
One of the best bargains they have is their new BPA-free water bottles from Camelbak. I have seen similar BPA bottles in the sporting good store for at least $15. Sigg BPA-free water bottles are great, but in my health food store, they run from $20-$40. The price of Lets Go Green’s BPA-free water bottles: $12.89. With the 25% discount, they end up being $9.67. I have yet to see them less anywhere else. Plus they come in a variety of colors.
