Giveaway: It's Primo!

A few months ago I won a case of Primo bottled water through another blog giveaway (forgive me, I forget what blog it was). And for some reason the nice people at Primo think I didn't receive the case of water because they just sent me a coupon for a FREE case. Since I'm a nice lady, I'm passing the savings on to you.

Primo water is the only bottled water with a bottle made from a natural plant-based plastic not petroleum (a.k.a foreign oil). They are recyclable. The process for making the bottles is also earth friendly: gives off 80-90% less carbon emissions and uses 65% less fossil fuels. And supposedly it is preferred in taste tests. You can find out where to get Primo near you here. Some areas don't have a local retailer (like my area). But Kroger stores carry it.

Full disclosure: I haven't tried this water. I put the case of bottles in the basement with the rest of our emergency supplies.

To win this coupon for a free case of Primo bottled water all you have to do is leave a comment below with your favorite way to be a little green, whether it is using cloth diapers, composting, walking to work, etc. Contest ends 10/13, a winner will be randomly drawn from the entries and announced by 10/15/08.


  1. My latest green thing is that I am actually using my reusable, recycled bags for all grocery shopping and errands and refusing all paper/plastic convenience bags. I even took them to the mall with me!

  2. I have been recycling cloths by taking to the thrift stores then buying used cloths to wear. recycling. Also using recycable grocery bags.

  3. My very favorite way to be gren is to use my reusable bags when I go shopping. They're bright and colorful with fun patterns on them and it just makes being green oodles of fun!

  4. I used cloth diapers with all seven of my children. At one time I had a three year old, a one year old and a newborn all using cloth diapers and wool covers.

    I bartered homemade bread with another mom who made homemade laundry soap so aside from the initial expense of the diapers, I had very little "diaper expense" and no nasty disposable diapers cluttering the landfills.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
