LetsGoGreen.biz is one of those companies! I first heard about LetsGoGreen.biz through a blog giveaway! The rules of the giveaway prompted those who entered to visit the LetsGoGreen.biz website, then come back and comment about his or her favorite product. I was very impressed with the scope and selection of their products. Being kind of a green "newbie" there were many products that I had never even contemplated. At the time of my first visit I had been reading about plastic grocery bags and how one plastic grocery bag can take 1000 years to decompose! Yuck! That same afternoon while I was emptying the kitchen trash I thought to myself, "Self, if a plastic grocery bag takes 1000 years to decompose, how long does it take these plastic trash bags?" Then, low and behold, Eco-safe Degradeable Garbage Bags! Where have you been all my life! If you haven't taken the time to browse their website, please do. Not only do they have a product to green-ify nearly every aspect of your life, most of the products don't cost any more than their non-Eco-friendly counterparts and many cost less!
The following video is a newscast in which CEO, Kyle Jodice talks about some of the products you will find on their website, and explains why he started the business in the first place:
Well, that's about it for me, have a great Thursday everybody!
Wait, just a minute . . . .
I feel like I'm forgetting something . . .
What was it . . .
Oh, that's right! I promised y'all a giveaway, didn't I? - Silly me, it's even in the title!
After the giveaway that introduced me to LetsGoGreen.biz, Kyle contacted me to see if I would be interested in hosting a similar giveaway on my blog! I was flattered, and accepted right away! A few days later, I came home to work, and this was on my porch:
Inside, I found this:
And I immediately went to work attacking this:
I am thoroughly impressed with this detergent! Laundry detergent is one of those things that I don't spend a lot of time thinking about. Mostly because if I can avoid laundry or anything related to laundry, I am a much happier camper; however, this detergent warrants a closer inspection. The first thing I noticed about this was the packaging, it seems like a very small bottle to do the self-proclaimed 64 loads, but as I was reading the directions I learned that it takes only one ounce per load for a standard machine and about half that for a HE front-loader. So, for my purposes, I poured enough detergent into the cap to cover the bottom, and tossed it in. At this rate, one bottle will do WAY more than 64 loads!
The next feature that drew my attention was the scent. Now, I know you're thinking, "Katy, you crazy girl, the website clearly says that this detergent is fragrence free." And you would be right! But I'm telling you it has a very distinct scent, and I honestly wasn't sure that I liked it at first. Initially, it kind of made me think of Pine-Sol! But our clothes came out smelling sooo wonderful! The very clean scent of the woods after the rain! And I love it!
And most importantly it works! I mean, it really, really works well! Austin's work shirts are white - I'm not exactly sure what the thought process behind this was, but that's the uniform, so we go with it. But he's a hard working man and he gets dirty, and his work shirts reflect that, as you would expect. Using this detergent, they came out snowy white, and I didn't even use bleach (which I usually do)!
So, you think you'd like to try some detergent for FREE! Just to sweeten the deal, LetsGoGreen.biz is going to send our lucky winner one bottle of the Concentrated Laundry Detergent and one bottle of the Concentrated Fabric Softener! (That's a $24+shipping value!)
