win a copy of growing up green right here at greenkiddos


I'm super excited to present you with our first ever blog contest! I have been reading this book, Growing Up Green, and it is chock full of great information on raising your kids in a green home. Now I'm the first to admit that we are not the greenest family you will ever find, but I am working on changing one little thing at a time. Every little change you make makes a difference and I love reading and researching to find out what else we can do to improve our family's lifestyle.

I am so excited to present a copy of Growing Up Green to one of my readers, but I'm gonna have to make you come out of lurking to win it! Here's how you can win.....

1. Leave me a comment telling me what type of blog post you would like me to write or asking me a question about anything!

2. Follow me on twitter, leave me a comment letting me know or let me know that you are already following me on twitter with your twitter user name.

3. Subscribe or become a google follower of Green Kiddos, leave a comment and let me know (it still counts if you are already doing this, just let me know!)

4. Blog, twitter or face book about this contest and leave a link back to Green Kiddos, comment and let me know (leave your blog address too so I can read your blog!). You can do each of these separately so they will each count as a contest entry.Please leave links or user names !

5. Add my button to your blog (it's on the sidebar with the code), leave me a link to where it's posted in a comment!

You could have up to 7 entries if you do everything, but make sure you comment on each thing you did separately so all your entries count. The contest will close at 8 am EST on Friday 5/29/09. I will use a random number generator to pull a comment number and will post the winner on Friday! Oh, and if you don't have a blog, please make sure you leave me an email address to contact you in case you are the lucky winner!


It's time to unlurk!! Come on and introduce yourself readers! Can't wait to read all your comments!

Hi Folks!
I follow on Google and often link to your blog when questioned by friends as to why we do what we do with our family...
From eating organic to using cloth diapers, we've found that living a greener life has many rewards.
Thanks for keeping us in the loop! I hope I win!

Hey Stephanie -

I want to know what the best prices are for the organic snacks you feed your kids. Where do you normally buy them? I just want to know if I'm getting good deals!

Kimberly said...

And I'm a subscriber too! Glad to see you blogging again. And I also join another blog you blogged about. Thanks!

Kimberly

Megan said...

What are your favorite eco-friendly toys for your children? Where can you buy them and get the best prices? Thanks, love your blog!

Katie said...

You know I follow your every move on my google reader and FB! I would like to hear about what you are doing differently this pregnancy/newborn versus the others where maybe you weren't quite as green. Not that I'm having another child, just for fun :)

Alison said...

can I enter even though I'm your bff and follow and stalk you in every way possible?

Monica said...

I've joined the ranks of your followers! I love your parenting approach and am sure I'll have some more thoughts as I continue reading your posts. Thanks for doing this!

Ashlee said...

I follow and stalk you too, of course!!! I would love to see posts about eco-friendly cleaning products, or even ones you can make yourself. Love your blog (and you).

I'm curious (ok, nosy) but you said you're not the greenest family out there. What is your weak spot? This doesn't come from a judgmental point of view, merely inquisitive. I'm not the greenest either but I'm working to improve.
Thanks for having a fun giveaway.

I've been following you since you started posting your link on FB and I know I've been inspired to live a greener life. I've been checking out the cloth diaper sites lately and love what you guys are eating during the week. Keep it coming!

Karen said...

Glad you're back. I'd like a post on if BPA in baby bottles is really as dangerous as some people say. Also I'd love to learn more about some study I heard of that suggested cloth diapers are no better for the environment than disposables.

LeeAnne said...

Hey gal! I just did a blog post about your contest -- you know the link if you want to check it out. :) The book sounds really cool.

LeeAnne said...

What is the singlemost eco-wise and fiscally sound thing a woman can do to make a difference if she were to just change one piece of her childrearing/housewiving routine?

I am totally into homeopathics and natural remedies. Would you do a poston that. My kids do not take meds of any sorts. We always treat stuff homeopathically and it always worked. They are pretty healthy b/c of it.
