Green Your Routine | Giveaway

September will always feel like the start of a "New Year" for me. I loved beginning a new grade in school with squeaky clean school supplies, freshly bought clothes, and the aroma of potential in the air. It seems appropriate with that sense of newness, which lingers even though I haven't been in school for years, to make a fresh start in the daily activities of our family life. Through the month of September Elasticpantcity is partnering with Seventh Generation* in a "Green Your Routine Challenge." The object of the challenge is to form four environmentally friendly and cost effective habits. It sounds simple enough but I have to confess, while living green is important to me, it falls down the list of priorities as the fatigue of mommyhood settles in. The "Green Your Routine Challenge"is a great way to help me focus on four easy steps to a healthier lifestyle, that won't overwhelm this already busy mom. 

Do you want to join the challenge with me? C'mon it will be fun! Here are the four steps, starting a new one each week of September:

Step 1 - The Litterless Lunch

Step 2 - Watch How You Wash

Step 3 - Choose a Fun, Fit and Sustainable Way to School, Work or Play

Step 4 - Rebrand Responsibility 

For extra motivation, at the end of the month I will be giving away a Seventh Generation Starter Kit. To enter the giveaway, like the Seventh Generation facebook page and leave a comment letting me know you've done so. I'll announce the winner on September 30th. 

Tomorrow I'll be sharing my endeavour to create a litterless lunch. Stay tuned and if your going to like Seventh Generation on Facebook, why not like Elasticpantcity too!

*Seventh Generation is sponsoring this challenge but I will be transparent about any pros and cons I find of using their products as well as mentioning other product lines that are helpful in living an environmentally friendly, sustainable lifestyle.

*Giveaway is only open to Canadian readers : (
