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 say.lol) I look forward to trying them out though :O)
Garden-Guys has a great podcast every Sunday on www.garden-guys.com/podcast.html 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.

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)
