Scotch helps with small changes for the environment (giveaway!)

Even though Earth Day is over, we should always be thinking of ways to help out our environment. All the little changes that we can do, that are easy to incorporate into everyday life, add up in a big way! I've touched on this topic before, but with little feedback, and I'm hoping to get a bit more from you all this time around.

Scotch brand has come out with new Scotch Magic eco-friendly tape, to help make a small change easier for you to make for our environment. With the 50th anniversary of Scotch Magic Tape, the eco-friendly variety is launching as well. This new option from Scotch features a refillable dispenser, along with the packaging and tape, that is made from more than 75% of renewable or recyclable materials.

It makes me very happy to see big, huge companies that help us make our small changes easier. Big thanks to the Scotch brand for making one more change that much easier for me!


Want to win a set of green office supplies including the new Scotch Tape? Leave a comment here with another small change that you've made to live a little greener!

Extra Entries??

This giveaway will accept entries until 11:59 pm on Monday, May 23rd. Winner will be drawn with random.org and emailed. Winner must reply within 24 hours to winning email or a new winner will be drawn. Please make sure that your email is accessible, whether in the comment or a blogger profile, cause if I cant contact you, how can you win?

I have started using scratch paper at work. If I need to print out something that I do not need to keep, I print it on the back of another paper so that both sides get used. Definitely saves paper. Thanks.

In our home and home office we are recycling everything possible. As a result, we only have one small white kitchen bag of garbage every two weeks.

It really makes a difference and it was easy to get used to recycling. We put the recycle bins in the garage where they are easily accessible to everyone.

Thanks for the giveaway.

I made a small change by switching all the light bulbs in my home, that are possible, to CFL bulbs. Unfortunately, there are not CFL bulbs to fit all the fixtures but I am sure there will be sometime soon.
