Earth Day Green Giveaway

It seems these days that most people tend to only think about doing something good for the planet once a year on Earth Day. While all those tasks are great it is the small things that we can do every day in life that will make the biggest change in our world. Now I have to admit that I was raised a bleach lover and it has been a rough task to get out of that habit. 
Recently I was given the chance to review a great group of products from Garden-Guys and Dragonfly Organix. The first was a Dragonfly Organix All-Purpose Cleaner. This is a safe and environmentally friendly alternative cleaner for everything from dirt to grease. It is safe for both kids and pets which makes it ideal for any family cleaning. It also contains no petroleum solvents! Like any bleach fan of course I was a skeptic as to how well it would work, so I put it to the test in both my bathroom and kitchen. It worked great, just as good if not better then my bleach, but without the horrid smell. Next I tried out the Garden-Guys Garden-Neem, which kills and controls insects and powdery mildew. While I spend a lot of time killing bugs already it has always been with a harsh chemical filled bug spray. While this one isn't as instantly gratifying on some bugs I have been finding little buggy bodies laying about in the mornings. This is a USDA BioPreferred product and OMRI listed! Best of all it has no horrid smell. I also recieved the Dragonfly Organix Odor Eliminator which I tried out in my truck. We bought the vehicle used and it has always had that slight smell of smoke. Being a lifetime non-smoker even after 4 years I still catch a hint of it every now and then. So far so good I'm not smelling smoke right now. I thought this product was particularly interesting because it is all plant based! The last product I received was Healthier Homestead Egg Wipes. I haven't had a chance to use these yet because the weather shifts are causing all my chickens to not lay(or I broke them hard to I look forward to trying them out though :O)
Garden-Guys has a great podcast every Sunday on where they discuss all the great products and tips for green living! I can't wait to listen in.
Garden-guys and Dragonfly Organix have been wonderful enough to offer a prize package to one of my readers! You will receive one of each of the products mentioned above. I have included a picture of your prize pack below. Please take time to enter on the Rafflecopter form :O)

**I received these products free of charge in order to write a complete and accurate review. I was no influenced by this and any and all views are that of my own.**

We just got new recycling bins, hopefully we can get better at recycling. We also are a fan of reusing things instead of trashing them.

We reuse EVERYTHING we can think of. I have a stash of coffee cans, cups, lids, bottles, cans, and even old clothes for all sorts of crafts and storage ideas.

I recycle and have tried to purchase more items that require less packaging. I shop with my own reusable grocery bags.

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …

With summer time in full force here in West Texas getting some new summer time clothing was not only a needed thing but a fun thing to do. We decided to try out The Children's Place online ordering.
