Green Irene

by Tiffany in A Green Home, Freebies

Green FairyWhen you made the decision to go green in your home and life wouldn’t it have been super helpful to have someone guide you step by step and tell you what you needed to do conserve energy, use less toxic products, and conserve for the sake of the planet? I think it would be awesome if you could just wish up a little green fairy to sprinkle your home with green fairy dust…easy peasy. But alas I don’t know any fairies…bummer.

The next best thing would have to be Green Irene, a trained and certified Eco-Consultant that will help you IMPLEMENT “green” solutions in your home immediately. No wondering if you are doing the right things or falling victim to greenwashing…they take the guesswork out of the process. They offer a green home makeover service that walks you through your home and step by step shows you how to conserve water, save energy, improve indoor air quality, recycle, and so much more. They also offer products or kits that get you started quickly. The $133 Water Conservation Kit for instance can ultimately save you over $4,200 in the next seven years while reducing your family’s Carbon Footprint. Their EZ Bulb SwapOut service will outfit your home with all new light bulbs of various kinds (like CFLs or LEDs) and you get to see what they look like before you commit.

Many want to do that right? We just may not know how to start or where to begin…Green Irene is a great option. You just contact them and they will set you up with a local consultant. I think it would be cool to give them a call just so I can see how I am doing. ;) And if you are a green expert already you can also become an eco consultant for them after going through training. That would be a fun job.

    I’d like someone to tell me what the most economical AND environmental things to do are.–in a priority list format so we can make changes as funds become available.

    I’d love ot learn about waste reduction. We have a family of 6, and any way to reduce our waste would be a great accomplishment.

  • Amanda

    The area of my home I would most like to “green” is the cleaning cabinet. I have a 15mo old that likes to lick everything, so natural cleaners would be perfect, I just don’t know where to start.

  • karen

    i would love to learn how to be more energy-efficient, and use more eco-friendly cleaning products!

  • I would love to have this to give to my brother. He’s moved into his own place recently and while I know he’s trying to be healthy, he’s missing a few “going green” aspects. This would help!

  • Nicole

    What a fun giveaway!!:) Iwould want a company like Green Irene to help me with making sure the green products that I do have in my home are truly green. I always like to think that I am being safe, but to get another’s opinion, who is a professional, would be amazing and bring me more peace and reassurence. Mostly, I am concerned about my green cleaning products and I would also like to heea about ways to be more energy efficient. Thanks!!

  • I would like to be more green with my laundry

    thanks!

  • April

    I would want specific instructions for making my own simple cleaning and bath and body products. I would want a list of safe mineral cosmetics and a source for safe nail polish.

  • Shawna

    I have changed the light bulbs to CFLs and have begun cleaning with more baking soda, lemon juice and vinegar, however, water conservation is an area we still need help in.

  • Eileen

    We would love to learn more about building/installing a gray water system.

  • Alana

    I would love help with green cookware and food storage.

  • jdp

    I would just like an audit of what we are already doing. I’m sure there are things we miss even though we’ve tried to cover all bases. We rent, so our changes have to be non-permanent or cheap/free. I’ve often wondered if a solar hot water heater is even feasible for us in the snow belt.

  • deb

    Tough one. I try to implement ‘green’ everywhere in my house. The one thing we need to do is renovate – our floors are awful. Some advice on ‘green’ flooring is what I’d ask Irene!

  • Maryellen

    I would want a company like Green Irene to come in and help me figure out how to lower heating and cooling costs.

  • Hannah

    I would like help with finding the best products- there are so many out there that use the “green” label for more sales, but I want what is truely best!

  • JJIlinois

    Our next big step in going green is purchasing a new washer and dryer that are water and energy efficient. With a baby due any time, it would save us a ton with all the cloth diapers that I will be laundering.

  • Deanna

    I’d like help in green cleaning–specifically the bathroom.

  • Jennifer

    I would love help with conserving resources more, and with truly green cleaning products. I already try to use mostly green things, as “regular” cleaning products tend to cause skin problems, but I’d love to learn about other options!

    Thanks for the contest!

  • water conservation is huge for us with cloth diapers…and waste reduction. even though we got rid of a lot by switching to cloth recently I still feel like a take to many trips to the dumpster. great giveaway!

  • Jackie

    This is such a cool giveaway! I would love to have some help in making sure I am going green correctly in cleaning my kids and myself – shampoos, lotions, etc are so confusing. There are times I think I am buying something good and then I find out later its not :( Also, I have gone green w/ all my cleaning, but think I need a little more help w/ the laundry : )
    Thanks!

  • Priscilla

    I’d love to learn more about green beauty care products for adults. I use green products for my year old daughter, but haven’t made the switch for my husband or me.

  • I totally would love them to come over and finish my greening of our tool room, where we keep extra paints and varnish. I’d love to get rid of it and find some low VOC’s that work well.

  • I really would love to get the truth with beauty products…my next major research/’do over’ green area…instant advice..minus the research would be nice!

  • Molomatic

    I would like to learn more about green cleaning products and health/beauty products. I worry about what chemical I’m putting on my skin. Green food storage ideas would also be great. Thanks!!

  • Angela

    What a great idea! I would love to learn more about saving and conserving energy and cleaning options. Thanks!

  • Nina

    I’d like them to help me make my rented condo more energy efficient for the winter. I can’t do much about the type of windows, doors, or appliances that I have, but I’m sure there is other stuff that I can do.

  • Lindsay

    I’d like to learn more about cleaning the air in my home the green way.

  • Robin

    I would like to learn about removing waste the green way. Cleaning products is on my list too!

  • Angelique

    i want to remove all chemicals from home and “green” my massage practice.

  • I would love some help reinforcing to my kids water and energy conservation. I think I say “Why are lights on in rooms with no people?” 500 times a day. Bath water is run too long, and doors are left open when taking out the dog. Having someone else work with them would be great! I’d also like some more green gardening info. I’m hoping to get my organic garden back up next spring. Our first year was okay, but we could use some help!

  • julie

    I would like to learn more about safe cleaners with my 8 month old daughter just about crawling!

  • Johanna

    I’d love help with the medicine cabinet…I’m trying to get rid of my cabinet that is like a mini CVS with all those shampoos, body washes, creams, lotions, makeup, boo boo aids that I thought were harmless all these years… but not sure how to start to do it cost effectively as well what to replace them with that are healthy. I need some green healthy replacements for me, husband, and baby and REALLY need help!
