How We Are Living A Greener Lifestyle + $1,000 In Gift Cards Giveaway #BringingInnovation @Walmart #CBias #ad

We recently moved to a new community in Florida. It’s a beautiful community with a lake, playgrounds, many walking trails, dog parks, and more. We even live in a green certified home! Now that we live here, we know there are things we need to do to try to conserve our resources for the future generations.

I am not one to recycle – for me it always seemed like a huge hassle. I did not have time to separate everything. But in our new community, they have made it very easy. We can put all our recyclables in the same container. So now we have to have a recycle bag and a regular trash bag. We must do this or our trash would be overflowing each week. They only collect regular trash once per week and they collect recycle trash one day per week. I am very happy we have been able to recycle our trash.

We also use a lot of batteries! Between the video game controllers, TV remotes, wireless keyboards and mice for our computer – I am always buying batteries. When I was in Walmart picking up batteries, I noticed Energizer New EcoAdvanced Batteries. We have always loved Energizer batteries because they are the longest lasting alkaline batteries.

They are the first battery on the market to use recycled batteries/materials – so I don’t have to feel guilty about using so many batteries in our home. I picked up a few pack of AA batteries and you can also find them in AAA.

I love to re-use products that I already have in my house. It saves me time and money! It is so innovative that Energizer New EcoAdvanced Batteries are using recycled batteries to make new batteries.

Another thing we have done to avoid extra waste is to use Absorbent Kitchen Cloths instead of paper towels. They clean so much better and keeps all that extra paper out of the trash. Plus it saves me some cash since I don’t have to keep replacing the towels.

What do you do to try to live a “greener lifestyle”?

I am trying to be more green, too. I will follow your lead.

Terry March 4, 2015 at 7:34 am

I have been trying to live clean, eat clean and do everything I can to help future generations. I don’t always do so well at it… but I try.

Jaime March 4, 2015 at 9:05 am

We recycle so much (we generally have more to recycle than trash every week.) I also use rechargeable batteries where possible, to help cut down on the number of batteries we’re buying.

Sarah Bailey March 4, 2015 at 10:41 am

I have to admit I haven’t made the switch to rechargeable batteries yet, it is definitely something I need to do in future.

Sarah B March 4, 2015 at 11:58 am

Great tips! Your community sounds like a wonderful place to live! I love these new batteries and we’re working to switch over to them in our home! #client

Catherine S March 4, 2015 at 12:07 pm

We go through a lot of batteries with all our electronics. I need to grab some of these when I got to the store.

aimee fauci March 4, 2015 at 12:55 pm

We are not a green home but we do try and watch our electricity usage. It can really add up, especially since we have an old house.

Donna Ward March 4, 2015 at 1:59 pm

It does feel so much better to be aware and implement clean living for ourselves and the future – and I don’t use many batteries but I need to check on the use recycled batteries/materials and I like the idea of the absorbent kitchen cloths – thank you

Kristen from The Road to Domestication March 4, 2015 at 2:09 pm

How neat! I didn’t know there were batteries like this out, but I will look for them now!

coolchillmom March 4, 2015 at 2:28 pm

I didn’t know that there were batteries like this! Great initiative. Off to buy some

Pam March 4, 2015 at 2:49 pm

I’m all about living greener and recycling whenever possible. These are going to be the next batteries I pick up.

Liz Mays March 4, 2015 at 3:24 pm

I’m always keeping my eyes open for ways to live sustainably. All of the little things you do can make quite a difference.

celebbabylaundry March 4, 2015 at 3:25 pm

I always try to do my best with recycling, I never heard of batteries like this before!

Jeanine March 4, 2015 at 3:47 pm

This is great! I just got those batteries too, they are really awesome!

Pam March 4, 2015 at 6:27 pm

We are always working on making sure we are as green as possible. I know we can do better. These batteries seem awesome.

Annie M March 4, 2015 at 10:38 pm

I am always looking to be more green in our household. Luckily, we don’t use batteries much 😛

Paula Schuck March 5, 2015 at 7:42 am

My family makes a real effort to be green. There is such a wide range of products available now to help make that possible.

Heather March 5, 2015 at 10:10 am

We really need to try re-usable batteries. I’ remember years ago they didn’t work well, but I’m hoping they’ve improved.

Lisa Rios March 5, 2015 at 7:33 pm

Living in a green certified home has been my dream always. Reusing old products always helps a lot in saving money & time. The giveaway looks big & I would love to give a try for sure.

We recycle, but our township supplies the bins. Its for paper, cardboard, glass, things like that. We put it in one giant bin, its gets picked up and then separated at the recycling plant.

Tess March 5, 2015 at 10:01 pm

We try to be green as much as possible. Reusable batteries would be great.

Mina Slater March 6, 2015 at 10:42 am

We totally recycle in my home, it’s the one thing I’m really proud that we actually followed through on with our green plan. We still have such work to do on the other things! I’ve wanted to try those batteries too.

Ann BAcciaglia March 6, 2015 at 3:34 pm

Recycling is big where I live. We divide our compostable food, plastics and papers. It is a lot of work and I will admit that I do not always do it.
