Going Green + Grab a Green Sample!

April 15th, 2013

The grass is greener on our side.  

     

Going Green

This verdant color is nature’s way of saying “relax“.

The color green is grounding. It creates comfort, diminishes depression, and helps us heal.

Like a walk in the park.

Our 21 Drops green blends capture the best of green in a little vial. 10 Calm helps you unwind,  11 De-stress takes the edge off and 12 Uplift helps shake the blues to put a smile on your face.

Grab a green sample!

In honor of Earth Month, we’re giving away sample vials of our 11 De-stress. What’s more… one lucky winner will be chosen to receive a 12 Uplift mini rollerball.

To qualify, just leave a comment telling us what you do to be “green”.

Giveaway ended on April 17. Thanks to everyone who participated. Keep up with our blog for more chances to win!

    I do everything possible to go green. I ride my bike or walk whenever I can, recycle and use reusable bags when shopping. I also keep gift bags to reuse for gift giving in the future. De-stress is one of my most used blends! It is truly amazing at helping me unwind after a crazy day full of classes work and workouts. 🙂

  4. Besides reusing plastic bags, recycling, etc., I make my own natural skin and haircare. I reuse bottles and jars from old products to put my concoctions in.

    We have eliminated the use of most paper products in our kitchen – we use cloth napkins and towels, dishcloths instead of sponges, and try to minimize extra packaging as much as possible…

  7. Joanna says:

    Besides the fact that green is my favorite color, I really try to stay green conscious. Low emission car, reusing grocery bags, walking if possible! I’ll actually be moving to Washington DC and going without car, which is really exciting stuff for me. But most importantly, I listen to this:

  10. Renee Trawny says:

    I use reusable bags for groceries, use reusable towels for my toddler instead of a bunch of paper towels, recycle as much as possible, I also teach an Environmental Wellness Class to personal training students and have them research green workouts and green fitness centers.

  11. K. Jones says:

    What’s interesting is…Green if my favorite color :-). I’m very big on recycling & doing whatever to assist with the green process. When grocery shopping I ALWAYS use my reusable bags. I’ve changed all my light bulbs (CFL/LED), recycle all my plastic products and purchase GREEN cleaning products. I’m not perfect and not able to in all instances, but I believe one step at a time and every bit helps.

  14. Shauna says:

    Besides recycle & compost 85% of our house hold waste. We shop in consignment and second had shops as much as possible for clothing and things.
    While we do have electronics they are items that we take care of and have for years. Even then when we upgrade we donate to schools,churches, or other places that can use what we no longer need.

    I make a lot of my own herbal medicines & creams so that helps by not producing bad air n from factories. I don’t use petroleum products cause they are killing and stripping g the earth.

    I eat organic and mostly vegetables no grains to help keep my body earth friendly.

    We are all children of the earth. Sometimes we just have to stop and give thanks back to her & our fellow man/woman. Practice the golden rule, due onto others as you would have them due onto you.

  15. Jasmin Wilson says:

    I recycle as much as possible and I do not own a car.I walk or take the bus when I can.

  16. Steffani says:

    I recycle all plastic and paper. I also use a reusable water bottle!

  17. Donna says:

    As a Cub Scout Leader I teach the boys “Leave No Trace.” They know how to camp and hike while protecting the environment. We pick up and pack out trash. We use mess kits and water bottles to cut down on garbage. The boys are taught what to do at home too. They recycle, conserve electricity and water. The boys are encourage to do what they can to protect Mother Earth.

  18. amy walters says:

    I wash and reuse things when possible instead of throwing it away.

  19. Sabrina says:

    I buy organic, reuse what I can, and am starting my first little garden this year!

  20. Kasi says:

    I always try to incorporate the three R’s which were introduced to me in elementary school; reduce, reuse and recycle. I recycle everything that I physically can, I reuse whatever I possibly can and I reduce the amount of waste my family produces as well as our water consumption. We try not to damage our planet anymore than it has already been damaged by others and we instil our love for Mother Earth into our children. After all they are our future! Making nature a big part of our lives by enjoying it as often as possible in the right way is important as well!

  21. Pauline Vrbanic says:

    I re-use plastic bags and recycle the ones I don’t use. Instead of throwing away unwanted usable items, I give them away to someone who can use them.

  22. Nichole Goodau says:

    We always use reusable bags for grocery and shopping trips. We recycle any items we can and we make sure we carpool to work every morning.

  23. Jeanne says:

    I re-use both plastic and paper bags – they make great liners for a bathroom garbage or to separate my daughter’s dirty clothes and diapers in her diaper bag. I recycle cans/bottles/paper products, etc. I actually don’t drive at all – so I walk, bike or bus.

  24. Karen says:

    I no longer buy bottled water. It’s a waste of money and very UNgreen. I have purchased a few refillable bottles, and I use those everywhere. It’s never a problem to fill them, and I live in a city where the tap water is great.

  25. Sandra Plante says:

    I would love to try any of your products.

  26. brenda says:

    I would love to try this

  27. Angelica says:

    I would absolutely love to win this! In the last few months my family and I have been under a LOT of stress from moving across country, dealing with new types of weather and the overall military lifestyle (aka going form active duty to reserves) along with stresses of being a parent. I have been wanting to try your products for such a long time now and the last few months I have been really looking into natural remedies and aromatherapy and such. Because of this, I had tried to used the products and placed an order but when I received it in the mail, it was frozen so I had to trash them. 🙁 So this would be the perfect opportunity for me to try out the product AND reduce the stress here. 🙂

      As far as “being green”, we try to reuse all the products/containers/packaging. We get our ideas from the wonderfully popular site: pinterest. We also purchase natural products for cleaning or make our own natural products for cleaning. By doing this I feel more confident and at ease because of lesser chances of exposure to harsh chemicals. We have also been transitioning to clean eating / organic items as well.

    • Cary Caster says:

      Dear Angelica,

      Thank you so much for your enthusiasm for natural remedies and your interest in 21 Drops!

      First we want to say that while not ideal, freezing and thawing our blends would not hinder their efficacy. Neither the Jojoba nor the Essential oils’ active chemical components would change when frozen. You can simply allow them to thaw and they will still deliver their promise.

      We wish you had reached out at that time and we could have advised you as such.

      Please note that we have our Ask Cary section if you come across any concerns going forward – http://blog.21drops.com/ask-cary/

      Thank you for participating in our write-in contest. We hope you enjoy the De-Stress sample!”

      Feel better. Be better.
      Cary

    I have seen these in sephora and always wondered how they worked since i love aromatherapy and i have decided to only use paper bags at the market like whole foods-theyre strong and hold alot-always grab a few-besides some stores offer 5cents back for using your own bag:-)

  29. Jessica T says:

    I recycle everything I can and use a brita pitcher instead of plastic bottles and I use reusable grocery bags.

  30. Lynn says:

    I reduced my showers to every other day. On the off days, I take a modified sponge bath, which requires only a 1/2 gallon of water, and I use dry shampoo to keep my hair looking fresh.

  31. Kat says:

    We are spending 2013 following the :use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without mantra before we buy or consume this year- it is harder than it sounds! My 9 year old and I have gotten very creative rather than running to the store when we are out of one thing!!!
