ecostore USA Review and Giveaway~Closed~

This contest is now closed!

1 Winner, Ends 4/15 @ 10pm EST!



This is the first of many reviews and giveaways that I will be posting this month that are about environmentally friendly or "Green" products and companies in honor of Earth Day on April 22nd!

Here is a some information on ecostore USA that I found on their website:

ecostore NZ was founded more than 15 years ago by Melanie and Malcolm Rands from their home in an eco village in New Zealand. They now have a team in the USA called ecostore USA!

The team at ecostore USA loves making a difference in people’s lives. ecostore USA does not compromise on performance, so customers can be assured of the efficacy of the products - they truly work. We offer more than 100 products, each one meeting the most stringent environmental and sustainability standards. The guiding principle of every formulation is and will always be that the end product must not only be good for the user, but good for the planet.


I was excited when approached by ecostore USA. I have slowly been trying to be more "green" at home and the thought of using household cleaners that were plant based intrigued me! I have always just used whatever was on sale with no thought put into what chemicals I was spraying on my counters and washing my dishes with! Well, no more Nasty Chemicals for me!

The good people at ecostore USA sent me 2 products to try out and review. The first product is their Dishwash Liquid. It is a 17 fl.oz bottle and super concentrated. Being super concentrated, you don't need to add as much of the liquid to the water. The bottle last a long time. I have been using it daily for a few weeks now. Due to the unique eco properties you may notice less foam than regular dish soap. I did have a hard time at first with this because I think we are just programmed that the more suds and bubbles the better! This Dishwash Liquid works great! It cleaned my greasy, messy pans without any problems. I love the fact that my family is eating food out of pans that I have not washed in nasty, harsh chemicals!



The second product that I have been using is their Citrus Based Spray Cleaner. This comes in a 17 fl.oz. bottle and has an available refill. The Spray Cleaner works awesome! I have been using it on my new counter top in my kitchen for a few weeks now and it cleans great and does not have that nasty chemical smell! Once again I am happy that I am not spraying chemicals on the counter tops where I prepare food for my family.



ecostore USA not only sells household cleaners, they also offer hair care, baby care, bath & body and pet care! CLICK HERE to check out all their great plant based products!

I just found out that a special selection of ecostore USA household cleaning and Baby Care products is now available exclusively at Meijer stores throughout the Midwest ... that's all 185 Meijer locations in five states. CLICK HERE to read all about it!

GIVEAWAY: One lucky reader of Money Saving Mama in Michigan will win a $25 Gift Card to use on the ecostore USA website!

  11. I signed up for the EcoStore newsletter. I already use "green" cleaners and soaps in my house, but always looking for new ones to try as some of the ones I have tried don't work good. These sound good!!
