  1. I’d be very happy with the Standard Reusable Shopping Bag as I never ask for plastic bag in the shop but I’ve lost my own cotton shopping tote..

  2. Roberto Cabrera says:

    I would love to tryDr Bronners Organic Fair Trade Shikakai Soap and Burt’s Bee Shampoo and Conitioners. I am tryng to be “pure” green this year and in my remaining lifetime, but I am still using unfriendly shampoo and soap. I just learned the names of the green soap and shampoo today, and I just want to try those products.


  3. I’d love the Home Organic Towels; my towels are mostly worn out and I don’t want my family exposed to the chemicals in traditional towels.

  4. What fun prizes! I’d love to try the Dr. Bronner’s soap! Thanks.

  5. I’d love to try the organic towels! Right now we’re using the standard towels and I bet there’s a HUGE difference!

  6. I’d love to try the towels. I wonder if they’re as soft as the non-organic kind? Thanks for the giveaway!

  7. awesome! i’ve been converting my household to chemical free, so i’d love to try the Burts Bee’s shampoo and conditioner and see how well it works.

  8. I’d love to try the H2O Eco Bottle. After seeing one up close, I know that I’d get a lot of use out of it and that it would compliment my Contigo Auto Stainless Thermos rather nicely.

    Built-in tea strainer FTW!!

  9. Since healthy eco-friendly food is my second passion,
    And organic, macrobiotic, biodynamic is the latest fashion,

    I would be more than happy to try the fruit bar,
    All thanks to number 1 eco-chick Starre!

  10. I’d love the hair dryer! I air-dry as much as I can, but I feel so guilty when I need to use all three of my hair contraptions for work!

  11. Sarah Brewer says:

    I would LOVE the hairdryer or shampoo/conditioner products- I have medium-length, curly hair and NEED some help keeping it under control. Plus, everyone always asks what I use and I would LOVE to talk up certain products.

    Also (because you didn’t say that we couldn’t pick more than one) I’m always on the run and love to stay hydrated. It really speaks volumes when you lead by example and have a waterbottle with you at all times. The more people seeing you drink out of one- the more they’ll be motivated to have one as well. Thanks for the giveaway!

  12. Kevan Christine says:

    I’d love to try the H2O Eco Bottle (stainless steel). I HATE buying water in plastic bottles. Not only is it bad for the environment but having to pay for water when out & about is such a bugger!

  13. My roommate Sarah showed me your site and I love it! Me? I’d really love the towels. I only own one towel…and I got it used in 2003.

  14. Jacquelynn says:

    I’d like to try the Dr. Bronner’s Organic Fair Trade Shikakai Soap! I’ve been a faithful user of Dr. Bronner’s products for some time now, but this one would be new for me.

  15. I’ve been meaning to try Burt’s Bees products, so this would be a great intro!

  16. I´d love to try Burt’s Bees Shampoo and Conditioner, cause I always have trouble to find a good Shampoo. So I would be very happy to try it!

  17. I’d love to get some new towels that are eco-friendly and maybe retire my rattier ones to a another use or donate them to a shelter.

  18. I’d like to try the Radius Source toothbrushes – the handles made of recycled dollar bills, wood or flax sound like a brilliant idea!

  19. I’d love to try the organic towels. My local Target doesn’t stock them 🙁
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  20. I would love to try the organic towels. They sound wonderful. I’m trying to move most of my fabrics over to organic ones but as a college student money is very tight.

  21. I would love to try the dryer, an efficient dryer saves energy and can make your hair shiny and full.

  22. The towels, for sure!! I just love fluffy towels and would be excited to have eco-friendly ones.

  23. I would love to try the Burt’s Bees shampoo/conditioner. I love what their products do for my lips, so I’m sure I would love what they could offer for my hair!

  24. I’d like to try the Burt’s Bees Shampoo and Conditioner set. I’ve never tried them before, but I love their other products (lip balm, lotion, etc).

  25. Gosh, I’d like to try all of it, but probably the toothbrushes. I try to go as eco-friendly as possible, but things like toothbrushes can easily get pushed aside when money is tight. Hopefully they’re biodegradable too!

  26. I’d like to try the hair-dryer. I let my hair air dry currently, but I’d like to speed up the drying process with a dryer for those days I want to shower and go. Because it takes a long time for my hair to air dry I wash my hair at night letting it dry while I sleep, so a hair dryer would enable me to wash in the morning, blow-dry, and go…assuming blow-drying doesn’t make my fine wavy hair frizz.

  27. These all look so good, but the Eco Stainless Steel water bottle…I drink a lot of water, and always refill my crappy old nalgene bottle…this would be sweet.

  28. Michelle Heater says:

    Would love to try the toothbrushes – have been trying to find toothbrushes like that to buy locally!

  29. I live in a tent on top of a car – not permanently just this year – while I am travelling around the edge of the Atlantic to raise awareness about how climate change and rising sea levels are already affecting communities.
    I would absolutely love to try the shampoo and the soap. Anything that makes me feel clean, smell nice and is good for the environment is an absolute winner. And lets be honest usually hard to come by.
    I might even share it with my companions – two slightly smell boys. Well, perhaps not. But I would give them a toothbrush each!
    Thank you for the competition.

  30. Sandra Morris says:

    I would love to try the Burt’s Bees shampoo/conditioner.I became a total vegan a little over a year ago and have been slowly switching to all cruelty-free products.One thing hard to find is a good natural s/c-especially when you have long hair.Everything sounds great though-I drink tons of water so the bottle would be awesome.I’m trying to make my carbon footprint as small as possible and this would be a great start:)

  31. I’d love to try the organic fruit bars. I didn’t know Target sold organic foods. I’d also love to try the water bottle. I lost mine at Disneyland this past weekend and have been out of sorts ever since.

  32. I would love to have the Standard Reusable Tote Bag because I don’t use plastic bags anymore due the negative effects it has on our environment. I also hope it’s the reusable tote bag that’s made out of the recycled Target bags because I tried to find it at my Store and they don’t carry it 🙁 and I couldn’t find it online. Or does anybody know where I can find it?

  33. I already love Burts Bees lip stuff, but haven’t tried the hair products, so would really like to check those out. I also have a huge reusable totebag addiction – so am always looking to add one more to my stash!

  34. I’d like to try out the ECO hair dryer.

  35. Good Morning! I would love to try the hairdryer.. i feel guilty everytime i use mine… ;( thank you!!!!

  36. I would like to try the H2O Eco Bottle. I have several plastic water bottles and they all smell funny. I would also like to try towels. Mine are like 15 years old and falling apart.

  37. I am most interested in trying the Conair Eco Ionic hairdryer.

    We forget about little things we do every day (such as drying our hair) and how they add up to a lot of consumption.

    Can’t wait! Fingers crossed!

  38. I would love to try the Burts Bees shampoo because I am always looking for good shampoo.

  39. I would love to try the organic towels! My son has really bad allergies, and I heard that organic towels are hypoallergenic, not to mention it’s good for our Earth too! =)

  40. Just realized that my nalgene was made pre-2008 so it has BPA 🙁
    I’d love a stainless steel bottle!

  41. i would like to try the H2o eco bottle. my family goes to the gym alot and this would be handy. thanks

  42. I would love to try the Burt’s Bees shampoo and conditioner. I love all their other products. I am a Burt’s Bee junkie.

  43. I actually represent a company (Zola Goods) that offers some of the best and most affordable green products on the market. Zola is committed to offering solutions to environmental challenges and empowering those who want to make a difference in their community. I love that Target is beginning to make a difference too! I personally am changing my ways and have changed to stainless steel water bottles, reusuable shopping bags, organic foods and most recently organic body products, like soaps and shampoos. I would LOVE to try the organic towels. I am just starting to realize the importance of going organic with towels, sheets and clothing.

  44. I would like to try burt’s bee products- I have never tried them before…

  45. I would love to try the eco bottle. i use a kleen kanteen but i teach fitness to kids and always give a water bottle for a b-day gift and would love to give this brand! also, i would love to try the dr bronners-i have never seen this scent!

  46. I would like to try the Burt’s Bees Shampoo and Conditioner. I have used several of their products, but have yet to try any haircare items. I also have been meaning to get a new water bottle for months.

  47. I would like to try the H20 Eco Bottle. Plastic bottles are not good on the environment. I would also like to see if water can stay cold longer in a stainless steel bottle. When the water bottles get used it is usually a long day. The day starts at 8:30 am till about 3:30 pm I bring lunch with us. It would be nice to have cold water till we get back home.

  48. I would love to try the eco ionic hair dryer. I have crazy thick, ethnic hair, as my mom likes to call it. Basically I need to harness the power of the sun to dry, straighten, or nicely curl my hair. So, Id love to see if something that isn’t detrimental to the environment can tame my mane 🙂

  49. I would love the Burt’s Bees Shampoo and Conditioner Value Pack, I commonly use burt’s bees product and have loved every product I have tried and would enjoy trying this new value pack!!

  50. I would like top try the H2O Eco Bottle, i use the plastic bottles and after a while just have to toss them out becuse of damage or smell. I would also like to try the Burt’s Bees Shampoo and Conditioner Value Pack, i have tried the lip line for burts bees as it is better for the body than other chap sticks and lip glosses but have yet to try there other products.

  51. i would love the dryer since my old one from college finaly broke and i havent found any at garage sales the last 2 weekends. i love buts bees too but im on a B-U-D-G-E-T 2010 STYLE

  52. Emily Huynh says:

    I would like to try Conair ECO Ionic 1400 watt Dryer because it saves energy 475 watts compared to the others. The other dryers are 1875 watts. I never had one save energy dryer before and I have been looking for one. Now I know Target has it. Thank you very much. Also, the world is facing a shortage of energy, especially the third world countries.

  53. I’d most like to try the Burt’s Bees duo — I’m obsessed with their products!

  54. I would LOVE to try the Reusable Shopping Bag!!! That way I don’t have to worry about all the plastic bags I would have been putting into the Dump! Even though I recycle everything I can, I won’t be recycling this! Well, maybe not for awhile unless some one else needs to use it. 😀

  55. I would like try the organic towels. My dog Sammy got a hold of one of my old towels, so I’m gonna need some replacements.

  56. I would love to be the proud owner of a Conair ECO Ionic hair dryer. I have extremely thick hair so I could really dry my hair completely and use less electricity. Thanks for the opportunity to enter your contest.

  57. First I commend you on this remarkable goal to promote green living. That’s fabulous.
    Trying the reusable bag gift card would be awesome. This way I can take it with me everywhere I go and even offer it to someone.I want to pass along the idea of green living too.

  58. Megan Simpson says:

    I love love love Dr. Bronner’s soap. I buy it all the time at my local natural foods store. The different scents smell so good and leave me feeling clean. I also would love to have the Eco hair dryer. My hair dryer is old and I’m sure sucks up a lot of energy. I’m on my way to being green!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  59. Honestly I would love to try all of the products.. When you find something you like, you stick with it cause you don’t want to waste your money on something you are unsure about. But if I had to choose one it would be the H20 Eco Bottle! Reusable water bottles and mugs are the way to go… And I’m in need of a water bottle. I wish more coffe stands and fast food places promoted using reusable mugs. It would make a huge impact. I lOVE THAT TARGET IS PROMOTING EARTH DAY AND BEING GREEN!!!!
    Thank you,

  60. In the spirit of Earth Day, I am taking my 3 year old son to do a neighborhood clean-up and recycling our plastics and aluminums at the local center, and letting him choose what product we should put our name in the hat for in this fun contest: he chose the water bottle. Thanks.

  61. Hiya, I’m really glad I’ve found this info. Nowadays bloggers publish only about gossips and net and this is actually frustrating. A good website with exciting content, this is what I need. Thanks for keeping this web-site, I will be visiting it. Do you do newsletters? Cant find it.
