evolve showerhead giveaway

Categories , ,
THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED.

Winners:
The winners of the evolve eco-friendly showerheads have been determined. Oddly enough, they are both named Sara(h). Our winners are Sara-Beth of The Butterbean Daily and Sarah of Sarah Simplifies. Congratulations, ladies! I do hope you enjoy this product and spread the word about evolve!


**********************************
A little over a year ago, I gave away eco-friendly showerheads from a company called evolve.

Well guess what?!?! I'm going to give away 2 more this year. This month actually. As a matter of fact.... in two weeks!





For those of you not familiar with evolve, here's the skinny....
evolve shower heads are maximum flow, eco friendly shower heads that use ShowerSmart technology to help you conserve water and save money. Say what?!?! Yes, it's true. But how does it work? AND really, how does it work?

So how does it work?
Basically, you start your shower just as you normally would. When you turn on the shower, cold water is sent through the pipes to your shower head. If you're like me, you're running around doing other things- ironing clothes, brushing your teeth, trying the catch the weather portion of the morning news- while you're waiting for the water to heat up. While you're doing this, you are wasting gallons of water, and since your hot water heater is fired up, you're also wasting precious pennies.

With evolve ShowerSmart technology, once your water temperature reaches 95 degrees, the water slows to a trickle. So finish your ironing, brush longer, and actually hear what the weather is going to be for the next 3 days. Once you're finished, hop in the shower and pull the cord attached to the shower head to resume normal water flow. It's all quite simple.

Seriously?!? I'll save money?
According the the evolve website, you can save up to 2,700 gallons of water and $75 on your utility bill yearly! WOW! Personally I haven't used the shower head long enough to determine a difference in my utility bill, but I can't wait until that time comes!

How much does this thing cost?
The evolve shower head that I use is the "water lily" Rain Shower head. This shower head retails for $80, other rain models retail for $60-$110. evolve also has standard ($40-$90) and handheld ($70-$130) shower heads available. I feel that these prices are comparable to shower heads that one would purchase at Lowes or any other hardware store.

How do I get one of my very own?!?
You can order directly from the evolve website.

Also, thanks to my friend Chevon over at evolve, TWO lucky readers have will win evolve showerheads. That's right, you could WIN AN EVOLVE SHOWER HEAD of your very own!

I will be giving away one (1) of the tulip standard showerheads ($80 value) and one (1) of the macaw handheld showerheads ($80 value).

Ohhh...I love contests. What do I do?
You must to do two things to enter the contest.
Part 1 Become a public follower of this blog (if you're already a follower, you can skip this step.)

Part 2 One of the things I love about evolve is their philosophy- this eco-friendly company has pretty much the same outlook as you and I in concerns to being "eco-friendly." For the second part of your entry, head over to evolve and take a look at their vision. Then, come back and tell me what you do in an effort to be eco-friendly.
If you do not complete both parts of the first entry, you will not be eligible to win.

The contest will end at 10 pm EST on Saturday, May 23, 2010. Winners will be chose via random.org.

Want to earn extra entries?
1 extra entry for following me on twitter.
1 extra entry for each relevant comment you leave to any other 2010 post on this blog.
(DO NOT comment that you left a comment- I'll see that when I approve it. You cannot leave two comments on the same posts and the comments must be relevant to the post.)

So what are you waiting for?!?! Start entering!


Enter my other contest too!


The Fine Print...Winners will be notified and must respond within 24 hours or new winner will be chosen. Please note any issues with the winning product are not the responsibility of Bloggymom and must be taken up with evolve shower heads. This contest is open to persons 18 and older with a US, Canadian or APO mailing address.

Who knew that "one minute a day" of wateris equal to 2,700 gallons a year? I'm trying to get to that level of what they call "dark green" by turning off the tap when I brush my teeth and even collecting water while waiting for the shower to heat up in a bucket to use out in the garden.

And of course, I'm a follower.

follow, and we do all sorts of things- even washing dishes by hand saves water and electricity of the dishwasher- and is goood family time. washing full loads- turning off water when not needing-

Shannon on 11.5.10 said...

I'm a follower. I also really liked reading the vision of Evolve. It's so mainstream. Not too tree-huggy (if you know what I mean). I also think they are right that most people want to conserve and take care of our planet, but we're not going to take hugely drastic measures. I love the idea of these showerheads! One thing that i have been doing to be more eco-friendly is making sure I only run full loads in the dishwasher and clothes washer. I also only wash my clothes in cold water.

i love their "vision" it's so real. to do our part to be ecofriendly, i've tried to cut out all the disposable things in my life: no more plastic water bottles, utensils, and bags. i've purchased aluminum water bottles, use real cutlery, and shop with reusable bags. a little bit goes a long way right?

thanks!

I love that they talk about how they cater to normal people, living crazy busy lives who are often forgetful amongst other things. Sometimes this whole issue gets very overwhelming and one tends to feel guilty about everything. We need more products that make living a greener life much easier and suited to our hectic lifestyles!!

We on our part are doing a little of everything. We try to take re usable bags wherever we go. We recycle every tiny piece of paper, plastic that needs to be discarded, we try to buy in bulk to save on packaging waste, we use bio degradable laundry and dish detergent amongst other things.

I have been using CFL bulbs now for 2 years and they do help with keeping the electric usage down. Also we dont leave charges plugged in when not in use. And this year we are going to install sensors that when you leave the room as you go out it senses you leaving and turns out the lights. Also be creative and find ways to reuse things instead of just throwing it away and filling the landfills.
