#TurnItGreen Giveaway Time!!!

This post is sponsored by REPREVE.  All opinions expressed on my blog are 100% my own.  

I shared last week about Turning It Green with Repreve.  I love doing my part when it comes to recycling and purchasing items made from recycled products.   In our household, we Turn It Green with recycling our plastic and glass bottles.  I am fortunate that my husband is a talented cabinet maker and he built us an extra long drawer for our trash and bottles - so it's all in one place making it very easy to recycle.

Even the kids are pro's at recycling!  We are quite fortunate, as well, that our grocery store has a recycling station right inside the entry door - through CLYNK .  All we have to do is bag up our bottles in the green bag (that we need to purchase), add the little sticker with my account number, slide it through the door.  Then a few days later, I scan my card at the CLYNK machine, and I can get a payment receipt that I can either cash in or apply toward my groceries.

I hate it when Ward steals my running goodies!!!  Don't tell him!  



I should back up here and add that in Maine, we pay a bottle deposit for all of our glass or plastic beverage bottles.  Fortunately, you can take those bottles back to a recycling center and get your deposit back!  I think it gives you just a bit more motivation to want to recycle.  And recycling is just a good thing all around!!!




I am loving that REPREVE  takes bottles and turns them into products that I already LOVE!

And guess what???  I have a REPREVE beanie that you can win!!!  REPREVE was very kind to send me two awesome green beanies - one for me, and one for a very lucky Running With The Girls reader.

Enter below.

  3. Sounds like so much fun! That's crazy that the place doesn't sell tickets online or something so you don't risk not getting in!
