NOW, it’s time for the GIVEAWAY!

In honor of Earth Day and making the earth cleaner, I’m hosting this giveaway brought to you by Kelly, a Shaklee Independent Distributor.

To be honest, I am not a huge eco-friendly gal, I use paper towels, I didn’t cloth diaper (but hope to one day… check out special at the end of this post), we don’t recycle but what is important to us is using natural products and minimizing toxins. 

In our wellness office one of the essentials we teach is minimizing toxins, there is just no way to remove all of them, they’re environmental, they’re in our household cleaning products, skincare products, food and more. The best thing you can do is reduce your risks by minimizing them. That being said, I’m excited for one of you to win a Shaklee Mini-Kit.

  1. it’s very important to reduce the toxin we are exposed too. There are way too many in our environment.

  2. I think it is VERY important to pay attention to using less toxic products, especially around our children and pets! Thank you for this great giveaway! Kathleen on the RC

  3. Yes–non toxic is very important to me.

  4. It’s very important for us since our entire family has severe MCS! It’s taken us a little while but I would say our household is about as non-toxic as you can get. 🙂 Unfortunately, most of the people we are around and other places we have to go don’t understand the importance of it. But at least we have our “safe place” to come back to at home!


  5. I love that the Shaklee products are non toxic. As a mom that is very important for the safety of my kids.

  6. Yes, I think it’s important to reduce the toxins we take in.

  7. I want to reduce toxins to try to alleviate eczema.

  9. It’s definitely important for the health of my family to use fewer toxins in our home

  10. I think it is extremely important for us to use non-toxic products in our homes. The Earth is our home & we have a responsibility to take care of it and to not harm it. Our homes is a great place to start.

  11. I think that it is important to take care of the environment.

  12. We use (mostly) natural cleaners in our house, utilizing baking soda, vinegar, and EO’s. It’s important to practice what we preach and keep as many chemicals out of the landfills and waterways as possible. FYI: Your automatic tweet is still coming up as your “12 days of giveaways”, so you may want to correct that.

  13. Ok, I was typing a comment and I dont know what happened to it!!! Yes I think it is very important to use non toxic cleaners!

  14. I love non toxin cleaners and absolutely believe in it for my family, our environment and I!

    Very very important!! I am a new mom and a former teacher and I think it is really important for us as adults to not only live green for the future but to protect kids from some of the harmful chemicals out there. I know that when my daugther grows up she will have lots of oppertunities to tackle tough desisions and things will not always go her way. Sometimes life happens and, as a parent, you just have to help your kids make the best decsions that they can. I know that there will be times where there may be nothing I can do to help her. So something I can do is practice safe responsible choices in the products I use and the habits I create to help our family be green. That is something in my control that I know will always benefit my daughter and the earth.

    Yes. Eliminating toxins is very important. Thanks for a chance to win.

  17. I love using natural and organic products to help my family and the earth.

  18. Yes! It’s what got me started on my natural lifestyle journey! 🙂

  19. Yes, I think it’s very important to use non-toxic products. Plus for me, it’s an easier step to take than others in having a more green & healthy lifestyle.

  20. I think it is very good to use only natural products….no chemicals in my house or in my body!!

  21. I do think using natural cleaners is important. Our skin is the largest organ and we absorb what’s around us. Toxins are more than just what we put in out mouths.

  22. I completely believe it’s important. I’ve used my fair share of cleaners that left me coughing and gasping for air. Plus, I hate feeling like I absolutely HAVE to wash my hands after cleaning – or use gloves.

  23. Extremely important! You clean everything around you, which means if it’s covered in chemicals then you are too! Plus it’s way cheaper for most products.

  24. I do think it is important to use chemical free products. Sometimes hard to change.

  25. Yes, I think it’s super important to use non-toxic products. We breathe it in, it gets on our skin, etc.

  26. Yes, absolutely!! Since having 2 smaller children, I am now more cautious than ever when it comes to using chemicals around the house. This product would be a great addition to some of the natural and organic items we currently use in our home. Having a greener lifestyle is definitely important for our families, but for the preservation of Earth!

  27. yes! Even though I might not approach it as a “green” thing…I think it is very important to not use toxic stuff in my house & around my kids!

  28. Yes! I think it’s really important…yet overwhelming…we are learning here.

  29. I absolutely think it’s important to use non-toxic products. I believe what we clean with and what we use on our skin can affect us in a positive or negative health way.

  30. Why do we add to the issue when numerous studies have shown that plain old vinegar and water are just as effective in getting rid of those germs we are so afraid of without the terrible consequences!
