Yes, it’s true *speaking loudly over crowd booing*. You might know some others who brush their teeth from time to time. I know a lot of people might be ashamed of it, but I’m gonna stand up and proudly admit to my brushing o’ the teeth.
Now that I’ve got that out of the way, lemme rap at you about a toothpaste goes by the name of Tom’s of Maine. I’ve recently had the pleasure of brushing my teeth with this fine toothpaste, and have no complaints. I’ve been using the “Clean Mint” variety, as seen rotch hur:
The Natural Resources Defense Council, who knows a thing or two about natural resources, says that if every U.S. household replaced just one roll of paper towels with a roll of 100% recycled paper towels, it would save over half a million trees every year!
Such an easy way to save tons of trees! So next time you’re out and about and feel the need for some paper towels, look for 100% recycled ones.
Better yet, use good ol’ reusable cloth rags to clean up messes, and cut down on all that paper towel waste.
If you want to take it to the Eco Hero level, reuse old t-shirts as cleaning cloths. You’ll be saving money AND helping the environment. Now that’s what I’m talking ’bout.
A hearty congratulations and “kudos” to Peg, who has shown how you can take a tiny sliver of time and make a big difference in your community! I hereby anoint her as an O-fficial Eco Hero.
Her mYsTeRy PrIzE for winning the litter cleanup challenge is a Kitchen Crop Sprouter, which will allow her to grow her own organic, ultra-local, vegan food right in her kitchen! Huzzah! Take a gander at it with your eye-balls!
Thanks for all the contest participants, and stay tuned for more challenges of various and diverse types. This is EcoJoe, signing out!
Do you have what it takes to participate in the 10 Minute Litter Cleanup Challenge? Can you clean up more litter than me, Mr. Eco-freaking-Joe? Will you become an O-fficial Eco Hero? Well bring it on!!
Imagine what would happen if every EcoJoes reader stood up right now and took just 10 minutes to clean up some litter outside their house.
Hey, you’re an EcoJoes reader right now, yeah? How about you scurry outside, pick up some trash, and come back in ten minutes? I’ll go outside, too.
Can you clean up more litter than me? You got ten minutes; go!
* Ten minutes later *
Okay, I’m back! Here’s what I found in just ten minutes in the woods outside mi casa:
Bam, most of that’s getting recycled, and some’s getting thrown in the trash. How much did you clean up?
Do You Want to Win?

Hoooweee, buddy, you stink! What’s that? You don’t know how to eliminate bad odors in an eco-friendly way? Well, cock yer ear this way, mate, and listen up.
“What Odor?” claims to be “safe for people, pets, and the planet”, and they back this up by being non-toxic, non-hazardous, non-reactive, non-flammable, AND non-corrosive. That’s more “nons” than an Indian restaurant! *pause for laughter*
Besides all that, it’s 100% biodegradable, which means it breaks down safely.
Their sort o’ cheesy name aside, this is a great odor eliminator. Instead of just masking a bad smell with some fragrance, this has active ingredients that break down the odor on a molecular level. I can’t verify that, as I didn’t have a microscope handy, so I did a bit of testing on my own. READ MORE »
