The Great Spring Clean: Win an Eco-Friendly Cleaning Kit!

The sun in shining, the birds are chirping (at least here at Care2), yet my sense of organization remains in hibernation mode. So, in honor of today, the official first day of spring, I will dedicate myself to a weekend of cleaning–a fresh start for a new season. If you care to join, here are some great tips to help you get started.

Win an Eco-Friendly Cleaning Gift Bag!

TerraCycle, pioneers of the upcycling industry, have donated three gift bags of eco-friendly cleaning supplies to the Care2 community. These products are non-toxic, planet, people and pet safe, and the packaging is 100% recycled, cleverly made by re-using old soda bottles! The best part? The cleaning supplies will come in a super-cute shopping tote made from those pesky, plastic grocery bags and fashioned into an indestructible eco-statement.

Please leave a comment in the field below and you’ll be entered to win. The three winners will be randomly drawn and announced on Friday, Apr. 3. Good luck!

I looked through my closets and drawers and collected all the items that I don't wear anymore together and donated them to the people who might need them.
