Bloggy Giveaway Day 4- Enviro Friendly Laundry Soap

**COMMENTS NOW CLOSED**  

Going green and changing the impact my family has on the environment can often seem daunting. Sometimes it's hard for me to know where to start, what changes to make, what we can afford to do and what changes will have the most impact.


I believe we all need to be more conscious of what is happening to our planet, but I also believe in doing what is practical for you and your family. I'd love to stop using paper towels, but know I'd never be able to keep up with the laundry so I try to buy recycled ones and I use cloth towels for dusting and light cleaning.


One change I have been able to stick with is using environmentally friendly laundry soap. When I saw an ad for today's sponsor, I emailed and they responded right away with a really great offer for THREE winners!



Dropps are concentrated liquid gel pods just like ones for the dishwasher. They dissolve immediately, are biodegradable and are phosphate, chlorine and NPE free (I had to look up the last one, it's nonylphenol ethoxylate). Dropps are sold online through their site, Amazon and Drugstore; and in Target, Wal Mart and Whole Foods.


They come in three sizes: 2,20 and 26 load pouches. I asked if a larger size is available through Costco or Sam's. A 42 load size will be available in December but only at the current locations. They come in a Fresh scent or dye-free non-scented which would be good for hubby's eczema.

One winner will receive a three-month supply of Dropps! That's 60 washloads (three 20 load pouches)! And two runners up will receive sample packages.


**Update: The literal second I hit publish, the doorbell rang with my samples! I'm not being dramatic either. I swear! Funny how things like that happen. Like when you think of a song and it comes on the radio. Anyway, I gathered up some of the mountains of my laundry and used one of the 2-load packs for a large load. The packs float and look like dying jellyfish while they're dissolving.


To enter:



1. Go to the Dropps site to read more about their environmental benefits.


2. Come back here and leave a comment on this post and tell me your impressions or what you're doing to be more green - required.
3. I MUST have a way to get in touch with you! NoReply@Blogger will not send you a response. I will have to delete comments with no contact info.
4. Comments will close on Friday, October 31st at 11:59pm CA time.


5. I will use random.org to draw the winners and post the results/notify winner via email and in a "Winners" post on Saturday 11/1. The lowest number will be grand prize winner.


6. You don't need a blog to win, but I MUST have a way to contact you. US residents only (sorry!)

  1. I am trying to be more green by recycling and cutting back on disposable paper products like paper towels, we also try to use homemade cleaners like vinegar.

  2. I'm trying to use/waste less paper (printing on backs and half sheets instead of throwing them away), seriously thinking abuot getting into to composting.. and using cfl lighting. It isn't much, but we're trying.

  3. Whoa, these look so cool! I'd never heard of them before. Definitely very modern and of course eco-friendly! I use GreenWorks cleaning products or homemade cleaning products around the house, I also don't buy products in such as styrofoam or plastic cups. I try to cut back on plastics and use glass items instead.

    Thanks Mel!

  4. Thanks for a great giveaway! I like that these are using less plastic than a jug of laundry liquid. It would be nice if the outer packaging was recyclable as well, but I wonder if they are limited in the materials they can use to keep them free of moisture. Two of the ways I conserve are by using a front loader machine and hanging most of my laundry to dry when possible.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I use Greenworks and 7th generation cleaning products around my home. I have to admit that I still use conventional detergent for my laundry. I would love the opportunity to try out Green detergent. I really hope I win. But I have said that about all of your giveaways.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I've seen ads for these and would love to get to try them! _SO_ much easier than carting the laundry soap up to the communal facilities!

    We try to recycle as much as possible, and I avoid disposable stuff when I can. It's amazing the difference it makes in how much trash we create vs. how much my parents create!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I really like the idea of this detergent. It sounds very clean and environmentally friendly.
    Some of the things we do to go green are buying fresh vegetables instead of canned (less packaginging waste), using a front load clothes washer (less water usage), and buying natural fiber clothing.

  8. I line dry my clothing year round!
    I've been wanting to try Dropps for a year now!

  9. We've been recycling for years and have switched out the lightbulbs. I've slowly been switching to eco-friendly cleaning and laundry products. I take reusable bags whenever I shop and we buy local produce as much as possible.

  10. These look great! Would be so much nicer than those big jugs of liquid detergent I use now. I like that these will also work in cold water washing which helps save energy!

    Would love to see the "jellyfish" look of them also LOL

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I love that it's all pre-measured! I am proud to say that I have gotten all my children on board with my Green philosophy, which my husband shares. We keep 4 canvas totes by the door, and we haven't used paper or plastic shopping bags since we started doing that! We also do not buy anything encased in plastic, which includes toys, electronica, and surprisingly, some food!

    Hope I win, thanks for the great giveaway, with all these kids, I do tons of wash. cdziuba@aol.com

  12. Those are interesting. I was just talking to my husband last night about making our own soap. This would be fun to try. We have been recyclying for years, and I also repurpose alot of things! I love doing that! thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I have to say I am actually fairly impressed with what I saw of this company and the product. I usually tend to be pessimistic about how "green" something really is. I think these are definately worth a try. Did your laundry get good and clean when you tried them? Thanks for the chance to win!

  14. we have been going more green...one of the ways is I stopped using laundry detergent...we have been using vingar on the spelly ones....I am very interested in detergent as long as it is cost effective and good for the environment

  15. I like that it is 6x concentrated, equaling a smaller eco footprint. We are very into going green, one thing we do is make all homemade cleaners, such as vinegar and baking soda, with added essential oils.

  16. I used to not get into the hype about "green" products. I personally thought it was a money gimmick, but I was so wrong! I'm more fond of green cleaners and laundry products than the traditional products that are out that. So please sign me up! :)

  17. I would love to try this. We have a lot of allergies at our home and are trying to be more eco-friendly.

  18. Sign me up, please! I'd love to try something like this, especially since it works for loads and loads--less packaging and less worry about running out of soap! The site seems to work in Firfox now, BTW.

    One thing we're focusing on is cutting out disposable paper products, like napkins and paper towels. Cloth works just as well (better, really) and all it adds is an extra load of laundry every couple of weeks. Good trade off!

  19. We use laundry and cleaning products with no dyes, perfumes, or chemicals. We recycle anything and everything we can. We buy organic, fair-trade and/or sustainably farmed foods whenever possible (and pay more too). And I bring my own bags to the market.

    Can I have my stuff now? Think! If I win, you can give it to me in person and save paper, stamps, and the fossil fuel to have it delivered elsewhere!

    ReplyDelete
  20. What a great product. I love it and I love that it can be used in front loaders.

    My family has made it a goal to be more green. We have made a point to use reusable bags for groceries, reduce our electirc bill/use, and put as much of our waste into recycling as possible. We are also working on creating a compost pile and using our wood stove more for heat, using less oil.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm really impressed by its smaller footprint. It's hard to believe that one jug equals 292 empty pouches.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Great produc! I like that it uses less plastic than a regular laundry container.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm tryin to "go green" by recycling more...using GreenWorks, unplugging things we dont need, and using less heat and more blankets! :)

  24. I'm going try and get a nice water bottle so I can stop using the throw away plastic ones. I hope to get totes for shopping so I can stop asking for the plastic grocer bags. Thanks for such a great giveaway and a chance to try out a new product.

  25. These look great! much easier then trying to measure the correct amount.
    For going green I am trying not to use as many water bottles. I bought a resuable one to use and its going good so far.

  26. I have never heard of these before--they sound amazing!

    We are recycling, changed out our lightbulbs with energy efficient ones, only wash our clothes in cold water, leave off lights unless needed...I know there are more....I just can't think of them!

    Thanks for (another) great giveaway!

  27. I have heard of these and would love to try them. Like you I have been seeking out greener laundry detergents...I have also purchased a Lady Bug Vapor Steam Cleaner so that I can clean my entire house without any cleaners whatsoever.

    I love that drops are biodegradable and environmentally friendly...it's about time.

  28. These look neat. I will have to peruse Target and Walmart to see if ours carries this. We recycle everything possible. I make myself crazy sometimes over it. We stopped using paper napkins, switched to CFLs, and I use a clothes line as much as I can. Thanks!

  33. I've never heard of these - how neat! We're trying to be more green by turning off lights in parts of the house we aren't using, switching to more drought-resistant landscaping, and using reusable shopping bags. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  34. We line dry our clothes when we can, I made my own handmade napkins out of an old dress, we grow our own garden and raise our own chickens, we make our own laundry detergent.
    Thank you for entering me!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I have been being more green by plugging all our appliances into strippads and flipping them off.
    making my own cleaners with tea tree oil and vinegar, using vinegar as fabric softener and making my own laundry soap too, although this sounds even better!

    we also recycle and I reuse all my boxes for ebay and all shipping I do. I try my hardest to think of everything I do and what I can do better!
    thanks so much!

  36. I like these because they look easy to use- toss them in and you're done. Every now and then I have to do laundry one handed with a baby on my hip and it's not easy trying to measure detergent out.

    What we are doing to go green is recycling everything that can possibly be recycled.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I have been trying to be more green by not using any plastic bags - we use cloth now. I am starting to recycle and am looking for household items that are more green friendly. I really like the idea of making my own cleaning supplies.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I try to only do laundry at non peak times and I use only clean water- also we try to recycle- I didn't know that people got to try products before all these blog posts. Thanks for your giveaway!

  41. To be more green, I have actually been trying alternative laundry detergents, including soap nuts, to see which option will work best for our family. I would love to give these a try.

  42. Oh wow, I'd love to try these. Since we're talking laundry, one thing I do is I only wash full loads and I use cold water whenever possible. I then use warm where necessary.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I like this because not only is it green, but it's easier for me to carry a couple down to the apartment laundry room without toting the whole bottle. To be green, we've given up all paper goods except TP--no more paper towels, paper napkins, or disposable tableware at all.

  54. I try to do as many things that I can to go green (you can check out my blog to read some of my forays). My biggest thing is using cloth diapers, but I do recycle, compost and use green cleaners. I'd love to try these in my washer.

    ReplyDelete
  55. So, I can't wait to try these! I haven't seen them in stores yet but I'll be looking. I've seen the soap nuts before, have you heard of those?

    I'm doing lots of things to go green (just see my green blog http://fromgreytogreen.blogspot.com ) but the one that has been most recent is switching to cloth napkins!

  59. The fact that they're pre-measure little drop packets is very convenient....

    At the moment I'm preparing for a serious move to 'greenness' in our food. I had zero gardening skills until this year, and my goal is to get to the point where I grow all our produce within 5 years. You better believe I'm utilizing the library books on organic gardening. :)

  60. Would love to try these out. I presently use Eco Products Boulder Laundry detergent which is non-toxic and I like alot but it comes in a big jug. These seem so easy.

    I have a blog about living green, sustainable and in harmony with the planet and live as sustainably as I can - even changed my diet to a mostly raw vegan diet at the beginning of the year and you'd be amazed at how little garbage that makes - you compost everything! We also grow a large garden, preserve food in different ways for the winter, etc.

  61. These are awesome and I would love to try them. Maybe I'm lazy but this seems so much easier then having to poor liquid into a cup to measure it - and it's "green" so that's great too.

  63. We're being more green by replacing all of our paper towels and napkins with cloth versions. It's actually been a lot easier than I thought it would be :-)

    ReplyDelete
  64. We're trying to be more green by making reusable produce bags (we get most of our produce from a co-op), and by nearly eliminating paper towel. I would love to try the scent/dye free version of these.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I appreciate that the laundry soap is pre-measured. You hear so much about folks using too much soap and gunking things up in the laundry. I think I do that!

    Being a little more environmental? Sure! I hang dry all but one load each week. (Those would be towels that get a might stiff if I hang them.) We've switched to CFL's. I use reusable grocery sakes. I also shop once every two weeks for groceries. More economical, but more environmental since I'm throwing less away!

    Thank you!

This has really really cut down on our plastic use. Thank you!

  102. I have tried Dropps before and wasn't thrilled with them. The outside didn't completely dissolve and left plasticy bits glued to my clothes several times. They have since completely redesigned them so I would really love to give them another try. I think their environmental and health benefits are great.

  108. We put up a clothesline so we don't have to use our dryer and can conserve energy that way. We also use a programmable thermostat which actually makes a huge difference in my energy costs.

  109. We recycle everything, we use real dishes instead of paper/plastic, and we don't use plastic water bottles anymore.

  110. I am considering using cloth napkins rather than paper at every meal. Napkin rings at each person's place will keep them handy for reuse.

    Thanks for having the giveaway!

  111. We totally recycle. If I could I would also stop the newspaper ads that come EVERY.SINGLE.DAY. and the door to door paper ads they stick in my door and fall out to the floor when I open the door. ANNOYING!

    Was I supposed to rant about annoying things or post how I am green?

  112. I use cloth diapers in 1988 and everyone thought I was crazy. I used the same ones pretty much for all four kids.

  113. I have never heard of these. I'll definitely look for them the next time I'm shopping. In our house we've been diligently finding more ways we can recycle. It all started with the Sunday newspapers and now we do our best to recycle just about everything.

  114. I am and I do turn lights off more now than ever before. I also use reusable shopping bags each week for grocery shopping. And, I have started turning the heat lower. Thanks!
