Entenmann's Little Bites
One of the reasons we celebrate Earth Day each year is to teach our little ones how to be green and help the planet with their actions. It could be small things like planting a tree, recycling or even up-cycling. But it’s one of the first steps to teaching them how to interact with the world around them. This year Entenmann’s and TerraCycle have paired up to give us all a helping hand teaching our little ones about being green. They sent me an Earth Day prize pack, and they’re going send one to a reader to help you practice green activities even after Earth Day passes.

Entenmenn's Little Bites

It’s a lot easier to convince kids that something is good when it involves something they love. Entenmann’s sent us coupons for some of their Little Bites, a reuseable (and upcycled) lunch bag and a $25 Home Depot Gift Card. Goonie was thrilled to see his favorite mini muffins when we brought them home from the store, and he could easily see where some of the packaging was used to make the lunch bag. As for the gift card? It will be perfect for our gardening plans and to set up the compost area to go with it!

The partnership between Entenmann’s and TerraCycle helps turn old food packaging into reuseable packages and even bags that can be used. You can even sign up for their TerraCycle Brigade to help out with your local school. Be sure to check out more about the program below and check out Entenmann’s on Facebook through the end of the month for your chance to win $5000!

Check out some fantastic ways you can get involved with Earth Day from Entenmann’s and TerraCycle.

Recycle
– Check-it: look for numbers and recycling symbols on plastics to know what types get reused
– Not sure what to do with your Little Bites pouches? Now you can recycle them with the TerraCycle Brigade programs and sign up  your school if it is not already participating. Check out what other lunch items TerraCycle recycles

Reuse
– Put your sandwich in reusable lunchbox container to take home and use again
– Before you toss anything away, stop to think about how you might be able to use it again. TerraCycle’s team of designers makes products out of wrappers and packaging.  Check out great recycling ideas.

Replenish
– Have any leftovers from lunch? Before you throw away, make sure to check out what biodegradable foods can be brought back home to be added to a compost pile.
– Make compost at home! Be sure to include the three basic ingredients: Browns (dead leaves, branches, twigs, cardboard, newspaper), Greens (grass clippings, vegetable waste, fruit scraps, coffee grounds) and Water to make an effective outdoor composting area.  Check out more info from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) 

Entenmann’s wants my readers to try new ways to be green and sustainable this year! They’re giving one of my readers a Little Bite’s Prize pack with coupons for free products, a reuseable (and adorable) lunch bag and a $25 gift card to Home Depot, so you have everything you need to start your green projects!

  1. we reuse containers instead of throwing them away, recycle, use better light bulbs, and never throw away batteries or other electronics.

  2. We recycle as much as we can. We are limited to newspaper, glass and aluminum cans at our apartment complex. Looking forward to being in a house again and being a zero waste household.

  3. Unfortunately my area doesn’t have recycle boxes yet so I save it for my mom to put it in her recycling bins! Thank you!!

  4. We recycle a lot of what comes into the house. We also use reusable shopping bags almost everywhere, not just the grocery store.

  5. We recycle as much as possible, I use my egg shells in my garden, give my pulp from juicing to my chickens, try not to use water bottles, but if we do use them in my garden in the bottom of pots instead of throwing them away! Thanks for the giveaway! 🙂

  6. We recycle everything we can, use light bulbs we can recycle at Lowe’s & do all we can! I’m wanting to plant herbs & plan to use kcups to start them. I found how to do it! Thanks for the giveaway!

  7. We participate in our county’s bi-weekly recycling program.
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  8. We try to recycle & reuse whatever possible. We also like to pick up litter when taking walks around our neighborhood

  9. My family does not drink bottled water anymore we get our water from a spring not far from us. We also plant new trees in our yard every year, the kids each get to plant their own.

  10. I’ll be honest and say I don’t do much that is very “green”. The few things I do are only running the water while you need it, use cold water to wash, turn off lights as exiting rooms, and try to find as much eco-friendly packaged products as possible.

  11. I have a huge recycle bin that gets picked up weekly. I also have a large bin I use for compost. I grow a lot of my own veggies with it. I have a water filter hooked up to my fridge. I don’t buy bottled water. I fill reusable ones and use those. Those are the main things I do.

  12. I recycle, always make sure to turn lights off when I’m not in the room, and I donate things that others would be able to use instead of throwing it away.

  13. Recycle can, replace all interior lights with LED/CFL, use solar lighting for outdoor lighting and energy efficient appliances all around
