Despite having conducted several giveaways here before and having blogged about green topics too (Do This, Not That! 20 Green Tips) this is my first official green giveaway. In honor of the popular tennies brand, Keds, announcing their first green label, we are giving away two pairs ($55 each) of their new eco-friendlier kicks.

What makes the Keds Green Label Canvas Sneakers green?

  • Laces are made from 100% recycled water bottles (cool!)
  • Recycled rubber outsoles (20%)
  • Non-toxic inks and dyes
  • PVC free
  • Eye-catching colors made from natural resources
To enter, simply post a comment here and share a green tip or something you're doing to be greener. Remember to include a valid email address or link to a blog where I can find a way to contact you. Also, if you Tweet This you will automatically be entered into the drawing twice. Two winners will be selected randomly using random number generator on the evening of Wednesday May 13th. Good luck!

  2. Those shoes are totally cute!

    I've switched to an all-natural, organic shampoo, and I'm trying to find other organic products to use around the house.

  3. I've been trying to buy more organic and cut down on my use of paper towels. I'm also doing my best to teach my fiance to turn off the light when he leaves a room! :)

  5. Hola! Along with recycling EVERYTHING possible, we have replaced all of our light bulbs with compact flourescent energy star light bulbs. Not only do they save energy but now I don't have to change the dang things so often!

  6. Nice giveaway, Tara! Green, hrm? We recycle pretty much anything that can be (I annoy my family by insisting on it), replaced tons of lightbulbs with CFLs (not all, but most) and saved a bundle on my electricity bill, consolidated servers in my house to save energy, and I'm replacing windows and using lots of caulk and insulation to make it tighter so as to save heat and cooling.

    I simply shut down my computer at night and kill the power strip that it and the other peripherals are plugged into. It adds up!

  8. Cool shoes! Great giveaway!
    We use cloth exclusively for our diapered babe. We are slowly switching to CF bulbs. Getting all cloth grocery sacks. We use reusable water bottles and a PUR filtration system container versus buying bottles and jugs of water. We wash most everything in cold water.

  11. I've been better about unplugging electrical cords I am not using like my phone charger. Also using recycled shopping bags for shopping at the mall, not just the grocery store. :)

  12. oh what a fun giveaway!
    i've been using reusable grocery bags way more often to be greener :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. I'm being greener by setting a personal goal to have more recycled trash than regular trash each week. So far, it's working!! :)

    I'm using reusable grocery bags and I'm also reusing the plastic bags I already have for trash (need to put them to use somehow!)

  21. I am a crazy recycler! I have just switched to natural cleaners and household items. I have stopped using paper plates and am now buying organic food. Love being eco-friendly!

  22. We swapped out our showerhead for a water-saver, you just push a button and the water flow slows while you shave or soap up.

    We also started unplugging appliances when not in use to conserve on "stand-by" power.

  24. Cute shoes!

    I am trying to recycle every plastic bag I accumulate after seeing Oprah's Earth Day special. Also, our new apartment doesn't have recycling so I lug all of my recycling to friends' houses.

  25. Hey there! No more papertowels for us and we've switched to all natural cleaners. We've also started changing our light bulbs to the more energy efficient ones. I'm trying to cut down on plastic bags... it's been tough since we've always used them as trash bags for our kitchen trash.

  26. I'm in the process of switching to all-natural cleaning products, and we've already converted to reusable grocery bags!

  27. I use the re-usable canvas bags when shopping for everything, not just groceries. :)

  28. This is great. I started drinking filtered water from the faucet at home instead of bottled watter.

  29. I purchased a waterbottle and fill it up at the drinking fountain instead of buying bottled water. It saves $ and plastic :)
