Happy Earth Day – specials galore!

Happy Earth Day, ecochicks! Check out Earth Day.ca to check out what’s happening across Canada and in your area. There’s also plenty of folks doing fun stuff in stores and on the web for today, so here’s a list of what I’ve found (will update throughout the day when I find new things, so keep checking back):

More to come – and of course, today’s Earth Week Giveaway is up too!

20% off at Soleado Casa!

ecochick’s personal choice of household cleaners are the ones from Soleado Casa. Their organic, natural cleaning supplies really, really work. As in, I think I would marry the tub scrub. Er. Well, if it was possible. Or even legal. Anyway, you get my point. This stuff not only works, it smells amazing and is great to use. It almost makes me look forward to cleaning. Almost.

For the month of January, if you enter the code JANSALE as the promotional code at checkout, you will get 20% off your entire order. You could buy the awesome Tub Scrub. Or perhaps a set of four microfiber cleaning cloths. Or you can explore their awesome lines for Mama and Baby, with great products ranging from organic soaps and herbal creams to rash salves and organic baby bath mitts.

You can buy it all online at Soleado Casa.

Home Depot Holiday Light Exchange – Nov 1 and 2 only!

Two days only, November 1 and 2, you can bring in your old incandescent holiday lights to Home Depot and receive a coupon for 50% off the purchase of a new string of energy-efficient LED lights. Awesome!

Seasonal LED lights use 95% less energy than traditional incandescent lights and will last 7 years longer, so it’s a fantastic investment. Home Depot will recycle the old lights and give you up to 5 coupons for 50% off new LED lights. Nice! Check it out, this weekend only.

Origins; 3 Treats Today Only!

3 Treats today only at Origins! Shop online and you can choose a free sample size Mask or Cleanser. Will it be the soothing No Puffery Cooling Mask for Puffy Eyes and the Origins Organics Foaming Face Wash, or perhaps the Plantidote Mega Mushroom Skin Calming Face Mask and the Perfect World Deep Cleanser with White Tea? Who knows, indeed? Head over to Origins and find out. Happy Halloween!

EcoBrain.com: Green Books for Green Living. And a giveaway!

Random.org says Stisso who said…

Hey! I like to read! I signed up.

Is the lucky winner of this giveaway! Keep your eyes peeled for more cool giveaways from ecochick.

Hey, it’s Thursday, it’s October, and I’m having a good hair day. Let’s run another giveaway! Whee!

ecochick’s a geek. I was always the kind of kid who had my nose buried in a book. And I am still that kind of grownup. But books are made of paper, and paper comes from trees, and the planet is changing and our habits are changing and perhaps, just perhaps, the new way of reading books is not paper, but electronic. And especially if you’re looking in to reading books about the environment and sustainable living, it seems strange to *not* read the book in the lowest impact way possible. And depending on how you use the book, it might make life easier. For example, cookbooks – I can’t be the only one who reads the recipe off the internet from the laptop in the kitchen. (Or can I?)

EcoBrain.com is the only online eBook store focused on the environment and environmentally friendly living. EcoBrain.com offers thousands of titles from top publishers about sustainable living, home and garden, green living, green building and more. EcoBrain even has a great selection of elementary, middle school and academic environmental science material. And, because eBooks don’t use paper and ink to produce, or fuel to deliver, you’ll be saving yourself money, and making an eco-friendly decision too! And it’s so simple. You search, you pay, you download. Instant book gratification.

Right now, if you sign up for a free account, you get a $5 account credit. (Many of EcoBrain books are $5 or less, so this is a great way to get a free book and try out EcoBrain.com with no obligation.) Oh, but that’s not all, ecochicks. Comment on this post and you will be entered into a giveaway for a $25 coupon for EcoBrain.com. That’s a total of $30. Think of the books you could download with that!

Simply comment on this post by Friday, October 10 to be entered in the giveaway, and tell me what book you’d buy from EcoBrain.com with your $30 credit. Don’t worry, I won’t hold you to it if you change your mind :)
