Scotties "Trees Rock!" Video Contest & Giveaway CLOSED

My family has been suffering with colds for so long this season that I've totally lost count. The number of tissues we've gone through is staggering. But I always feel really bad about buying and using tissues, especially when you seem to be going through a box in record time, because it's not exactly environmentally friendly. That's why I was so excited to hear about Scotties "Trees Rock!" video contest.


When Scotties offered to send me several boxes of tissues, I jumped at the chance. Scotties plants three trees for every one tree they use to make their products. This is HUGE! It means I don't have to worry that I'm contributing to deforestation just because my nose continues to run for months on end. My kids also think tissues are a toy, so there are times when Tzipora might pull half of the tissues out of the box just because it's fun. While it makes a mess and is pretty wasteful (unless we come up with some good way to use them), I don't have to worry that I'm doing something against the environment.

Scotties is trying to encourage children to be more mindful of the environment with their "Trees Rock!" video contest. In order to enter you need to "submit a video depicting an individual or group of 3rd, 4th or 5th grade students answering the questions 'Why are trees important to you, your school and your community?' and 'How you think your school could use the money to beautify the outdoors if you win?'" The grand prize is $10,000 cash for the winning school along with a tree planting event.

If you think your school could use $10,000, then go enter! There are two more weeks left until submissions are closed. Found out more at scottiestreesrock.com.

How would you like to win a Scotties prize pack (8-10 boxes of tissues and a $25 Target gift card)? a Rafflecopter giveaway

We were sent a Scotties Prize Pack free of charge for the sole purpose of this review; no other compensation was received. All opinions expressed are my own.

The biggest thing I do to help the environment is teach my children about it! They know not to litter, to pick up garbage if we see it and to recycle.
