Sponsor giveaway: 10x EcoForce goody bags

by EcoStreet on May 3, 2010

in Competitions , EcoHouse , Energy Saving , Recycling

Spring into green cleaning with eco-friendly scourers, sponges and cloths from EcoForce, manufacturers of practical, everyday, household products from recycled materials. We all need to do our bit to help the environment and using recycled products instead of those made from virgin materials helps reduce landfill and conserves fossil fuels.

Reduce carbon emissions by using your tumble dryer less and hanging out your washing to dry using EcoForce’s new Recycled Peg Basket, Clothes Pegs and Clothes Line. EcoForce’s Clothes Pegs are strong and durable, and made from 93% recycled plastic. They contain no metal parts to rust or wood to stain clothes.

Instead of binning your left-overs at meal times pop them in a bag and close with EcoForce’s Recycled Bag Grips made from 93% recycled plastic.

EcoForce has been selected by British designer, writer and TV presenter Kevin McCloud as one of his Green Heroes at Grand Designs Live, Excel, London this week (w/c 4.5.10). Stop by and see them if you’re at the show.

I’m delighted to be giving away ten goody-bags full of EcoForce recycled household products (value of goody-bag £15) to 10 lucky commenters. Simply leave a comment below to be in with a chance to win. Ten winners will be chosen at random on Monday 10th May 2010 and the winners will be announced here. Please note that this giveaway is only open to those readers with a UK postal address.

And the winners are…

Yael, Freda Kerslake, Matt Brasier, Joy Griffiths, Kate Lancaster, Andrew Cakebread, Susan Pringle, Jon, Chris, Susannah Leggatt. Congratulations, you’ll soon be using your recycled household products from EcoForce! Winners, please reply to my email requesting your mailing address.

It’s so nice to see the increasing numbers of green companies trying to make a difference. It seems as though they find a niche where eco-consciousness and consumerism can co-exist.

I agree we should all contribute to helping to reduce landfill and conserve fossil fuels.

Imagine if everyone in the UK swapped to recycled pegs the difference that would make.

Greater awareness of how we can help can only be a good thing.

Besides the obvious benefits, I like to recycle. It’s fun to reuse things and I hate to throw stuff away if it can be passed on to someone else or put to a different use.

The way to make a real difference is by encouraging everyone to start making small steps towards being greener – every little step helps!

I am always looking for ways to be more environmentally friendly without giving up basic conveniences. This would be great.

I would be able to replace all my non-eco products with these. Which has got to be a good start. We can all make a difference no matter how small it seems. This is the way forward

It is always good to know that there are ways we can contribute to making a difference to the enviroment. We only have one planet so lets all try looking after it for the sake of our children and our childrens children and many more generations beyond that.

Yael May 4, 2010 at 10:57 am

If you change the little things the big things follow easily.
I would love to have some eco pegs! never use a drier, to be honest, not for eco reasons just cause I love the feel of air dried (and cause there was only room for a washing machine in my kitchen :)

Sue Matejtschuk May 4, 2010 at 11:02 am

I’m trying my best to be green, so would love a helping hand! Curiously, my teenagers are not very bothered, so I’m constantly fishing cans, cardboard and plastics out of the ‘normal’ bin – aren’t kids taught to be eco-friendly at school, or are mine just rebellious? !!

We all have to do our bit..however small that may seem to be. Great competition and good luck to all x x

Reply

pat jobes May 4, 2010 at 1:00 pm

why cant everybody do their bit to be green
you dont need chemicals to get clothes clean
its not so expensive choosing eco range
and we should all be responsible fo climate change
the stuff we use,(most of its waste)
is making this world a trrible place
so recicle wisely,and choose with more care
we’d cut down less trees, and have fresher air
if we all changed one thing, and change what we do
things would be better, the pegs are great too.

jane graham May 4, 2010 at 1:19 pm

buy a clothes horse – and fold things properly so that they need little if any ironing
also – if things are just damp enough to iron and you have no time to iron them when you take them off the line – put them in the freezer, folded and ready to iron at the right dampness. This is especially good for linen which becomes easier to iron when first folded and frozen.

Despite my voting for the Greens last night, it seems the country are as determined as ever not to listen to their message. Well, I for one will not be disheartened and intend to redouble my efforts to do my bit. This prize would be a great start to my resolution. I hate the wooden pegs the wife uses – they are due for being replaced and I know she will go for the wooden ones again. And eco-friendly scourers – I didn’t even know they existed and I consider myself pretty clued up on what’s around!

I think that laundry is best dried outside, not only because it is cheaper, quicker and more environmentally friendly, but it actually smells fresher and is easier and quicker to iron.

Everybody should try to do a bit to help the environment, all those little bits add up and make a huge difference.
