GIVEAWAY: Help Your Kids be one with Nature - and WIN a month supply of Scott Naturals Products ENDS 4/25 (CLOSED)

Get Outside! Nature is waiting for you...

This is the 2nd of four posts in my series to celebrate Mother Earth.

Before we get into this week's giveaway, I first want to announce the week one winner of a month's supply of Scott Naturals wipes, napkins, paper towel and bathroom tissue that is made from at least 20% recycled material or packaging.  The winner is David Kinney of Trenton, MI. Congratulations David.  Now your home is one step closer in helping to save the environment.

This week, I want to remind everyone that the great outdoors is waiting for you.  Even though it snowed in Detroit today (truly amazing), it is Spring and time to start getting outside and being one with nature.

A few years ago, I took my son on a nature hike that he loved.  Our guide showed us how to identify different plants and trees and all the kids, including mine son, came away with a real appreciation of the the outdoors and nature.  That love of the outside was what led my son to get involved in scouting.

So what are some of the easy ways to go green while being in the great outdoors?

Plant a Tree!
Lowes is celebrating Earth day on Saturday, April 23rd by giving away 1 million trees. Get up early to get yours and take the kids with you to plant it in your yard.  You and your kids will all get a real sense of accomplishment.  And remember to take photos of your kids next to sapling so that you can see how they and tree will grow over the years.

Give the Car the Day off!
Park the car for one whole day and walk or bike everywhere that you need to go.  You will burn calories, save money on gas and lessen your carbon footprint all at the same time.

The Scott Naturals Pledge Helps the National Wildlife Federation
Scott Naturals is challenging Americans to pledge to go green by testing out its line of hybrid paper products for four weeks.  And for every person that takes the pledge, Scott Naturals will make a donation to the National Wildlife Federation of $1 (up to $25,000 total).  The National Wildlife Federation puts a huge emphasis on getting kids outside and they have developed a “Be Out There” activity finder for ideas on getting outside with kids -

You Won't Feel the Difference, but the Environment Will
Scott Naturals is the world's first line of hybrid paper products that features bath tissue, paper towels, flushable moist wipes and napkins made with a blend of virgin material and at least 20% recycled material in products or packaging. I have been chosen to participate in a blogger program to test drive the new Scott Naturals in my home for the next 4 weeks. This week I started using the Scott Naturals Paper Towel in my kitchen and I cannot tell the difference between the natural and the regular.

Between April 4 and September 30, you can go to and pledge to participate in the Scott Naturals 4-Week Test Drive Program. While you’re taking the pledge, you can enter for a chance to win a Ford Fusion hybrid sedan. You can also get coupons to save money on your Scott Naturals purchases.

And remember, for every person that takes the pledge using the link above, Scott Naturals will make a donation to the National Wildlife Federation of $1 (up to $25,000 total).

So, you see Going Green and being good to Mother Earth has never been so easy.
