Mother's Day - Fresh Laundry Giveaway


Yes, the weather is getting nicer but for my family this means a lot of allergy trouble. My son's eczema gets out of control between April and June. He is allergic to trees and grass, so as you can imagine things are about to get pretty bad for us as everything blooms.

About two weeks ago, I received from the ECO Store some of their amazingly "clean" products. This has been a Godsend. We have used the laundry detergent, the body wash and the shampoo for the past two weeks and my son's skin looks awesome. There are no rashes, no red spots, no itch. I love the product so much that even I am using it.

Eco Store USA's products use no "Nasty Chemicals".

Ecostore NZ was founded more than 15 years ago by Melanie and Malcolm Rands from their home in an eco village in New Zealand. After growing their business they are now selling their products in over 600 stores.

We all hear the term "going green" but what does that really mean? Eco Store explains it like this:

At ecostore USA, we are here to help you make the connection between the household products that you have been using for your entire life and the potentially harmful effects that they may be having on the earth and on your family's health. ecostore USA is here to help you become more informed and offer you authentic, safe alternatives. Would you like to learn about what "Green" really means?

ecostore is green!

Ecostore sells the following products:
Safe Products-ecostore USA has formulated its products without toxic petrochemicals, phosphates, nitrates, chlorine, ammonia, enzymes, synthetic perfumes, coloring or dyes, optical whiteners/brighteners or chemical preservatives. Instead, ecostore USA uses sustainable ingredients derived from plants and minerals, producing safer products that work equally as effectively as those that are chemical-based. Customers anecdotally have reported that, after using ecostore USA laundry products to wash clothes and linens, children’s eczema and dermatitis have disappeared, while allergies and asthma symptoms have decreased.

ecostore USA guarantees its products:
• are plant- and/or mineral-based and free of nasty chemicals (No Nasty ChemicalsTM)
• use safer ingredients from renewable resources • are formulated with your health in mind
• are safely super-concentrated
• meet the highest environmental standards
• have not been tested on animals
• are GE free (free of genetically-engineered products)
• are packaged in recyclable packaging
In A Nutshell: I love their products. The products are concentrated, so a little goes a long way. The scents are subtle and the product is top of the line. Usually going green means spending more money on a product. In this case, due to the concentration, you are actually saving money. I use 5 cap fulls of the laundry detergent to do a full wash and (3 times so far) and I have used only about 10% of the product.

Bottom Line: My son has severe eczema around this time of year and currently, he is not suffering.

Now is the best time to order!

April is Earth Month - All Orders of $25 or more qualify for FREE Shipping

Thanks to my wonderful connection at ecostore I am able to offer my readers the chance to win a product to test for themselves.

  3. I learned that ecostore USA knows that it can be expensive to buy natural or organic products, but we've found a way around this by safely super-concentrating each formulation. This means that a little really does go a long, long way. The result is saving money by significantly cutting down on cost per use. amsbolda@hotmail.com

  26. I learned that they sell their products at a store called Meijer (?). I don't know what that is, though, since I have never heard of it. Grocery store? Drug store? It looks like really good stuff, and I wish that that they had picked a national store like Target or Wal-Mart.

    Ecostore Dishwash Liquid does not contain toxic petrochemicals, phosphates, nitrates, EDTA (ethylene diamine tetraacetic acid), Sodium Lauryl Sulphate, TEA (triethanolamine), synthetic dyes or perfumes, which are found in standard washing products and can poison the rivers which we have all heard about lately.

  33. I learned that For instance, in 2007, a team of French scientists published research demonstrating that the two most common childhood cancers – leukemia and lymphoma – are overwhelmingly correlated to prenatal exposure to toxic chemicals used inside the home. The increase in cases of these haematopoietic malignancies (or “blood cancers”) over the past three decades calls into question the wisdom of producing or purchasing synthetic chemicals as cleaning agents in the home.
