Scott Natural's 4 Week Test Drive ~ Week 1 (GIVEAWAY!)

Ever since having children, I have found that I have taken the more natural approach to many things in our lives. Such as cleaning products, recycling, bath products, diapers, and even medicine. So you can only imagine how excited I was to ask to be part of the Scott Natural's 4 Week Test Drive, and in turn be able to share it with you all of you. Scott is doing a number of really amazing things that we can all be a part of, and who doesn't love giving a little and getting a little (I have a giveaway for you!)

When cleaning around our home, I try my best to use products that are kid and pet friendly, as well as friendly on Mother Earth. We use all-natural brands for cleaning countertops, bathtubs, sinks, windows, floors, and even our clothing. The direct benefit is I am not worried about how my children's skin will react to the gentle, but perfume-free and dye-free detergents that clean their clothes. With two kids with sensitive skin, it's important to be careful of such things. And better yet, with eco-friendly becoming such a trend these days, you can easily pick these products up at your local grocery store, Target, Wal-Mart, and so on.

Like I said, Scott has some cool things going on. By visiting their website and pledging to take the 4-week challenge, you will first off be a part of possibly saving over 2 million trees! By using Scott Naturals paper towels, toilet paper, napkins, and flushable moist wipes for 4 weeks, you may not see the difference, but the environment will! (You can even get yourself some coupons!)

I was also really excited about this campaign because of how Scott Naturals is helping the animals! For every unique click to taking the pledge, Scott Naturals will donate $1 to National Wildlife Federation (up to $25,000). How awesome that a simple click could generate funds to such a great cause?

And as if all that wasn't enough, there is something in it for you!

Scott is giving away a Ford Fusion Hybrid Sedan to one lucky winner! I adore this car, and maybe when I am past my mini-van stage I will look into getting one! When you take the pledge, you will also find a place on the page where you can enter to win! You can enter once a day through 9/23/2011.
And for one lucky Mommy Instincts winner, I have a Scott Naturals Kit! Here's how you can win!
1. Go to the Scott website and PLEDGE to take the 4-Week Challenge!

2. Enter to win the Ford Fusion Hybrid Sedan (this is not required, but hey, why not right?!)

4. Come back here and tell something (in the comments section) your family does to help the environment, small or large, every little bit counts! Be sure to leave an email address or email me at mommyinstincts AT gmail DOT com with your contact info if you don't want to share it publicly. I need to be able to get ahold of you in the event you WIN!

Wanna help get the word out?
