Welcome to week number 2 of the Scott Naturals 4 Week Test Drive! Last week I introduced you to the purpose behind the 4 Week Test Drive, to read more click here. Also last week Scott Naturals offered a Scott Naturals hybrid paper kit to one Pretty Pink Momma reader. Congratulations goes to Sohomalina!
Last week's theme was all about tips for going green. I listed several tips that I found useful but I also asked giveaway entrants to provide tips as well. There were some really great tips that were mentioned so I thought that they deserved a mention this week. Here are some of my favorites:
- Take shorter showers to reduce water consumption daily.
- Be mindful of gasoline consumption by walking or riding a bicycle, if you have to drive try to combine tasks and use routes that take the least amount of fuel.
- Use cloth napkins for meals and cloth towels for washing hands instead of paper products.
- In nice weather hang dry your clothes outside and then toss them in the dryer for only a few minutes with a dryer sheet and they will come out soft - saving 90% energy!

Enjoy The Great Outdoors in Celebration of Earth Month
This week in honor of the National Wildlife Federation the theme for celebrating our Earth is enjoying the great outdoors. One way that we show our appreciation for the environment is by spending time outside and bonding with nature's beautiful surroundings. By spending time outside its gives us all an appreciation for what we need to preserve, not only for ourselves but for our children. Not to mention it is a huge bonding opportunity for parents and children.
By spending time with our children outdoors we are teaching them the value of preserving and protecting our environment. If children don't get the chance to play outside and experience different ways of exploring what nature has to offer it could have catastrophic results when they grow into adults. They may not understand the need to teach others, including children of their own, the importance of preserving our Earth.
The National Wildlife Federation wants to encourage parents to provide opportunities each day for their children to go outside and play. They have several ideas on their website so that parents can keep it fresh and interesting. Some of my favorite things to do outdoors with the kids include nature walks, searching for shells at the beach, fishing and I would love to take the kids camping.
My husband and I due to work schedules and other commitments haven't been the best role models when it comes to exploring nature. We have been talking a lot this weekend about camping and how we'd like to take the boys this summer because they have never been. I think that camping is so important and it teaches a great deal about nature and our role in keeping it safe. Plus its SO much fun! My boys love playing video games and it will be so nice for them to get away from electronics and just spend time as a family, bonding with nature and each other.
I remember going camping with my family when I was a kid and it was so great. I also was a girl scout and I camped several times a year with the girls in the troop. I loved singing and telling stories around the campfire. Almost as much as I loved the SMORES! My husband and his family never camped so all though he really wants the boys to experience camping together he really has no idea what its all about and why its so relaxing. I can't wait to share this with him so he can see for himself the positive impact that it will have on the kids.
In celebration of Earth Month and the Scott Naturals hybrid paper products, Scott Naturals is offering one Scott Naturals kit to a Pretty Pink Momma reader each week over the next three weeks! Each kit includes Scott Naturals Tissue, Scott Naturals Towels, Scott Naturals Napkins and Scott Naturals Flushable Wipes.
