Things I Love Thursday- Ecostore (And A Giveaway!!)

tilt If you have read my blog for any length of time you know my struggle with living green. I want to do it, I know I should do it, but sometimes it is just soo hard. And I am just soo lazy. Giving up paper bags, easy. Giving up my cleaning wipes, painful.

So I love it when a company comes along that just makes things easy. Ecostore makes great products for you and your home that are all free of yucky chemicals. That is a technical term. This means everything is biodegradable in packages that are easily recyclable. Their products aren’t tested on cute little bunnies. They won’t expose your pets and kiddos to scary things. What is not to love?

I’ll tell you what else I love. The smell. Their laundry liquid smells like heaven. Seriously, I have never smelled anything like it. The Citrus Cleaner, citrusy heaven. And the Lemongrass soap. Oh my goodness, it smells like a lemon drop. I just can’t get over how good this stuff smells. Which I guess is secondary to the fact that they really do work

And here is the deal, often times “earthy” stuff equals expensive stuff. I will admit this is why I don’t often buy green. But Ecostore’s products are much more concentrated than typical cleaners so you don’t need near as much so you can stretch your money a bit further. And while their products used to only be available online with shipping costs, now they are available at my favorite grocery store, Meijer. Or through my blog, cause I am giving away some laundry soap!! Did I mention the heavenly smell?

To win, head over to The Ecostore and tell me which product most interests you. For a second entry, participate in my weekly carnival “Things I Love Thursday.” The guidelines can be found here. To get your second entry, you must leave a second comment letting me know you linked in in Mr. Linky. I realize that is redundant, but I draw the winners from the comments, not Mr. Linky. If you don’t leave a second comment, you will not get a second entry. The contest ends next Wed. night, April 8. Enter away and link away.

*The winner of last week’s Fiber One basket’s are Candace, Amanda, and Misti. Congrats ladies, enjoy your pampering.


  1. I’d like to try the Baby Shampoo. We go through what seems like gallons of baby shampoo w/ 4 kids. ;)

    Jesss last blog post..Haircut calamity…again.

  2. I would like to try the vanilla shampoo and conditioner; they sound yummy!

  3. I liked all their shampoos (particularly the Manuka Sandalwood and the Rosemary/Orange). The honey/kelp soap looks wonderful too…

  8. I’d love to try the auto dish powder and the baby wash! Great contest – thanks for the opportunity. :-)

  9. Oh the baby wash or shampoo. My kids have extremely sensitive skin as well as eczema so most of those types of products make them break out. Add the moisturizer on that list, too :)

  10. The vanilla soap sounds heavenly it is my favorite scent, I’d LOVE to try that.

    I’d like to try the dishwash liquid. Thanks for the giveaway!

  15. I left a TILT post in Mr. Linky and also mentioned your giveaway. Thanks!

  16. Does the baby sleepytime bath mean if I use it, my daughter will actually sleep through the night? Because I miss the days when she did that. And it would totally be worth the $11!

    Mary @ Giving Up On Perfects last blog post..Pump Up the Jam with Pandora

  17. I’m intrigued by the auto dish powder – I’ve found plant-based laundry detergent that isn’t too expensive, but haven’t found any dishwasher detergent I was brave enough to try. Like you said, it’s usually expensive, and our water is super-hard so I never know how it will work.
    Thanks for the tip about ecostore!

  18. I’m on the Mr. Linky, too.

    Kristi_runwatchs last blog post..Our room is all grown up!

  19. I would like to try the baby wash. It’s hard to “go green” on a super tight budget, but taking care of our kiddos with less additives sounds good.

    Kristys last blog post..Things my girls have taught me this week…

  20. I would love the lemongrass soap. Loved looking around the ecostore!

  22. I just found your blog so I will not be entering to win any samples. I just wanted to say I LOVE your posts! How creative and great! I look forward to following you. Also, I am very curious about this company. I wish they would sell their products in other stores (I hate paying shipping costs) I have been looking for great “green” products, but like you I have a hard time. The main reason is the extra $$$ to buy it! I’ll have to check out this store though!

  25. Amanda says:

    I would love to try the laundry soap. I have really sensitive skin and so does my baby, so I’d love to try something without so many chemicals to see if that helps us any.

  26. congrats again! and all the rest of us (head count is THREE now, not including you!) who got knocked up doing your challenge are still insisting on that pregnancy disclaimer for future years. ;-)

    Erin Gs last blog post..Dubai – Beaches and Water Fun!

  27. I’m all about trying that toilet cleaner. =) Thanks!

  28. I would like to try the sleepytime baby bath…. maybe it would work and my child would miraculously decide to start going to sleep with little toddler girls are supposed to… hehe wishful thinking!

    Thank you so much!!! I am SUPER excited about the gift basket I won – can’t wait to bathe in chocolate… always been my dream ;)

  36. Melissa says:

    I would love to try any of the cleaning products! They sound wonderful . . . the toilet cleaner, the citrus spray, the front-loader laundry powder, the dishwasher detergent. How do you choose???

  37. I’d like to try the pure oxygen whitener. Seems like since my giant belly has grown, I spill everything I eat on my shirts! Oh well, only three more weeks!

  38. I would like to try the lemongrass soap!

  39. The Messy Mom says:

    I also participated in “Things I love Thursday.” I ma so glad I just found your blog, it’s great!

    The Messy Moms last blog post..Why I love Crocs

  40. Their sandalwood shampoo sounds really nice, but then so does the herbal dog shampoo. Nothing like having a herbal smelling dog rather than a “dog” smell!

  41. the baby shampoo!

    moochs last blog post..withoutmelissa:

    I also tried on this dress while we were at…

  42. I would like to try the laundry soap b/c I’m very into laundry that smells yummy!

  43. and I’ll probably be the last to link up… or close to it.

  44. The Ecostore sounds great! :) I’d love to try their Baby Massage Oil.

    Michele @ Frugal Granolas last blog post..Favorite Natural Baby Care Solutions

  45. Okay, comment #1 is to say I linked up. I was too tired to comment last night! Need. More. Sleep…….Too many blogs to read and not enough time in my day….Boo.

    Las last blog post..The Perfect Snack Cup

  46. Comment #2 – because of your convincing post on entering give aways (an itouch is VERY convincing), I’m entering this one. I’m thinking the vanilla shampoo and conditioner sound wonderful. Is it weird that typing that made me hungry???

    Las last blog post..The Perfect Snack Cup

  47. I think the Citrus Spray would be wonderful. I, like you, TRY to be green, and one thing I use A LOT of is kitchen cleaner – not because I cook, but becuase I just have an obsession with wiping my kitchen counters and sink – I know I’m strange.

  48. and my link:

  49. I like the lemongrass soap or Aloe Vera Conditioner.

    I would love the vanilla shampoo! What a great scent. Thanks! Beth W.

  51. I think the Pure Oxygen cleaner sounds great! I would love to try that.

    Thanks for hosting!

  52. Lauren says:

    Your description of the laundry detergent scent makes me want to try that! From the website, I thing the Rosemary-Orange shampoo and conditioner sound great!

  53. I’d like their vanilla shampoo. I love the scent of vanilla. Thanks for the fun!

  56. I would try the dishwasher soap…I use an eco-friendly one now and am always open to another one. It feels so much better to use something that you know does not have lots of chemicals and other yucky things in it. Even if you use this then next time you need some, go back to regular and switch them out, you’re still doing the earth a favor. :)

  57. Heather H says:

    Ooh – this is awesome, Jill! Thanks for the tip – I’ll have to check them out at Meijer.

    I am super excited about the the pure oxygen whitener cause I do have some bleach in my house (white porcelien sink needs to stay white!), but i always feel bad about using it…

    Heather Hs last blog post..Earth Hour Extended

  58. Nicol says:

    I love all things green, but I have not found any good dishwasher soap. They have one!

  59. WOW! Thanks for posting this site. I will probably place an order soon. I love to smell things – and especially love the smell of clean laundry – I think that I would like that laundry soap or the coconut bar soap!!! Really anything on that site I would love:) Thanks

  60. I’m most interested in the Citris Spray Cleanser. I’ve found some good non-chemical, all-natural products that I like but not for a Spray Cleanser. Thanks for the site link though, I’ll have to check out some of the other!

  61. From the website I like the baby care items I am always looking for good body wash for my daughter who has sensitive skin. $10 is still less than the $12 I pay at Target for California Baby.

    LaVonnes last blog post..Low Temperature?

  62. I also participated this week in Things I love Thursday. Thanks for a second entry!

    LaVonnes last blog post..Low Temperature?

  65. Wanted to let your readers know that for the month of April there will also be free shipping on all orders over $25.00!!!

  66. I would like to try Pet Care products.

  67. Holy crap they have a lot of nice things!!! It was super hard to pick a favorite!

    I think that rosemary orange shampoo/conditioner sounds awesome! But check it out, they have dishwasher soap and rinse aid! How cool is that?!

  68. I linked in Mr. Linky.

  69. I would like to try the Citrus Spray Cleaner or the Automatic Dishwasher Powder. Sounds great! Thanks for hosting a great give-away!
