Pin to Make a Difference with Kleenex Cottonelle + Giveaway

Earlier this month I was invited to the Kleenex Cottonelle Pin to Make a Difference event. Unfortunately I was not able to attend (work always gets in the way of fun for me!) but it sounded like a fantastic event with lots of bloggers getting on board.

You can check out some shots from the day on Pinterest.

The event was just one part of a campaign to get us all to think about how we can take small steps in the home each day to create a sustainable future.

I’ll be upfront and confess that I don’t consider sustainability enough in my everyday life. Sure I recycle everything I can and I do try to watch how much electricity and water we use, but I haven’t gone much further than that.

Just a quick peruse of some of the sustainable ideas already collected on the Kleenex Pin to Make a Difference page shows just how many other ways we can make a difference in our homes.

I personally love the idea to convert light globes into hanging hot air balloons (how cute!) and recycling milk bottles to hold stationery – there really are some creative souls out there!

Kleenex Cottonelle really want your ideas too and have offered My Home Truths readers the chance to win a prize pack containing the following goodies:

  • Viva Cleaning products
  • Kleenex Cottonelle flushable wipes
  • Kleenex Cottonelle toilet tissue
  • Kleenex Tissues
  • 1 Kleenex Cottonelle puppy toy

For your chance to be in the running for this awesome prize pack, all you need to do is to share your best sustainable tip for the home.

Share how you make a difference everyday and Iโ€™ll select the most creative idea as the winner.

    We have a compost, don’t use a clothes dryer and love using cerEal boxes, toilet paper rolls and recyclables for crafts on rainy days with the kids

  2. Michelle V says:

    We keep all cartons and tubs for crafts and arts
    And re-use envelopes for notes and for charts
    We have a vegetable patch in the back yard
    We borrow books instead of buy (all you need is a card!)
    We use refillable bottles for all our drinks
    I clean with lemon and vinegar, not chemicals that stink!

    I make my own washing powder, it saves heaps of packaging and therefore means a lot less landfill! It only costs about $10 a year! Bargain!

    I refuse to buy commercial cleaning products, I think they are a total waste of money. I use white vinegar, and essential oils for just about all my house cleaning. Not only do they do a great job, they are safe for children and pets and they leave the house smelling gorgeous!!

    I like both FB pages ๐Ÿ™‚

    Repupose everything!
    This week a milo tin become a indoor pot plant, an old tshirt was turned in to a reusable shopping bag… i think i have repurposed hundreds of household items.

  6. Melinda Nardella says:

    I collect different things around the house clean them up and donate to the primary school or use it at home. Small yoghurt containers are great for paint and pencil holders. Toilet rolls and the inside of glad wrap. (as we go through so many) any old gift wrapping paper and ribbons. Birthday cards are cut down and reused to make another card…I even save the scoops from the washing powder boxes. There are so many ideas.

    I ask myself some questions.

  8. Merryl says:

    Clothing swaps with family and friends. Get a whole new wardrobe without spending a cent. It saves resources and money!

  9. M Coleman says:

    I don’t use a heater or electric blankets I have cat lap and cat bed warmers instead.

    Honestly? I’m not very good at being sustainable naturally. HOWEVER, I’m a firm believer in taking small steps to change… so… I started with reusable shopping bags, then reusable nappies, then planting a garden, then making my own cleaning supplies, then reusing food containers for craft supplies before recycling them… The next thing I want to do is something I found on Pinterest!! Reusable fruit and veg bags to shop with!!

    Having seen a recycling depot at our day care center, we decided to set up the same in our garage. Having this area really makes our recycling efforts a breeze. We have dedicated bins to newspapers, glass, aluminum and plastic. I love the way my daughter is learning how important recycling is. Sorting the items out keeps her busy and feeling important, too! ๐Ÿ™‚ I follow you via Facebook! ๐Ÿ™‚

    We recycle all (except for muddy boy baths) our bath & shower water to the washing machine, we did have a small pump but now it is just a bucket.
    I also use washing up water on pot plants.
    We live on tank water so have to very careful.
    We are renovating a mobile home with mostly second hand building materials/windows and even kitchens -lucky hub is a carpenter.

    We unplug all power points and switch off all lights when not in use. You can also re use cloth and old clothes over and over for various cleaning jobs!!

    And my favorite thing to donis recycle everything possible for crafts!! Food containers can be used to store art and craft bits and pieces, glue, home made paint, home made play doh, everything!!
    My 4 year old loves his “recycled” craft projects. He paints and decorates egg cartons, toilet rolls and more. And makes collages with scrap paper, magazine clippings, cloth and more!! It’s amazing what you can recylce for craft!!

    I follow you on Facebook – Sasha Teslenok. We make our own fertilizer – anytime there a banana peel, potato skins or leftover food, instead of throwing out, we collect them in a compost pile outside in the yard. Such a fantastic idea and you have a free fertilizer, too!

  15. Agnes says:

    In our family, we love wrapping gifts with kids’ artwork. I canโ€™t remember the last time I bought wrapping paper, because there are two very eager artists ready to make a custom version instead! Original, free and fun to make! Following on Facebook…
