Green Nest Review & Giveaway!!


Green Nest is a website devoted to helping people interested in transforming their health and quality of life by...well...going Green!  Green Nest began in 2003, when Lisa Beres, an interior designer, starting feeling run-down and tired.  Being aware of the amount of toxic materials in homes today, she started searching for answers.  After much research, Lisa came to the conclusion that her house and choice of products was making her sick.
According to EPA research, on average, the air inside our "nests" typically contains2-5 times higher levels of pollutants than the air outside! In extreme cases, there can be as much as 100 times difference!
"It was through this research that Lisa decided to become a Certified Baubiologist (Building Biology - a study derived from Germany which encompasses how buildings impact life and the living environment). With her B.A. from Arizona State University already under her belt, she then decided to incorporate her two passions in life - interior design and health. After making the necessary adjustments to their home, her health gradually became better and she and her husband Ron decided to help other people in their endless efforts to attain optimal health. Together, with Ron who earned his B.A. from George Mason University, they chose to seek "greener pastures." In addition, Ron has also continued his education through Bau-biologie focusing on air, water and indoor materials and electromagnetic radiation."


Green Nest offers products from air purifiers to cleaning supplies, bed and bath products to organic baby items, and even books and cd's on the subject of a healthy home/life!


I was sent the Green Nest All-Purpose Cleaner for review.  This is an amazing cleaner! It comes as a concentrate, and includes a pre-labeled spray bottle (so you don't have to use marker) to mix the concentrate and water! How convenient! Now you don't have to go find a bottle to keep your diluted cleaner in! This cleaner works great. I was amazed at how quickly and easily it worked while cleaning the bathroom and kitchen counters, floors, etc. According to Green Nest, this all-purpose cleaner:


"* Is environmentally safe.
* Is 100% readily biodegradable.
* Is non-carcinogen/non-corrosive.
* Is Water Based.
* Has a Neutral pH Factor 9.5+/-0.4
* Is odorless and colorless.
* Is economical.
* Saves time and labor.
* Is safe on any washable surface.
* Will remove oil stains from driveways.
* Will not attack wax or paint.
* Requires no rinsing."


The 4 oz. bottle of concentrate makes 2 gallons (8 quarts) of all-purpose cleaner. For about the same as you'd pay for a normal cleaner, you can get a healthier choice! No more toxic chemicals and ingredients in your "cleaners".


The cleaner completely breaks down in to water and carbon dioxide in 27 days. It contains no di-lymanine or other combustible citrus/orange chemicals that need to be disposed of in approved dumps.  
Let me tell you, if you try this cleaner, you will not be disappointed! In fact, you may find you like it so much that you'll want to purchase it again and again! If so, check out Green Nest today for all your healthy home needs!

Green Nest is giving an All-Purpose Cleaner (concentrate and spray bottle) to one of my readers! Also included is a coupon for $10.00 off your next Green Nest purchase!
