Giveaway AND Contest: Method products!

The good people at method just sent me a box of 200 samples of Smarty Dish dishwasher detergent. I get to share the love, and so do you!

Each little sample packet inclues one Fragrance Free Smarty Dish dishwasher detergent “tab” and one coupon for $1 off any method product.

I’m planning to send (while supplies last) four samples to each person who asks: two to keep and two to give away. Instead of entering the giveaway in the comments, just email me your mailing address - heylaurawhat (at) gmail (dot) com.

Might you want to try Smarty Dish? I think so. I just used it on a load of dishes and was quite impressed. It seemed to get my dishes a lot cleaner than the current “natural” dish detergent that I’m using right now. I am most likely going to switch to method next - I love the Pink Grapefruit scent option!

The Most Creative Feedback WINS!!

Because method has asked for feedback on these samples, there’s a contest attached to this giveaway. While anyone can ask for a sample, only those who send feedback will be entered in the contest for more goodies.

You are competing to have the most creative feedback. What does that mean? Whatever you want. Show us a video of you sharing a sample with a stranger. Draw a superhero comic using the samples as your characters. Write a poem or a play. Make a Smarty Dish Shoebox Diorama. Get your kids or pets involved somehow. Go crazy!

Entries will be posted to and the winner will be determined by polling of the other readers (so it’ll pay to get your friends involved!).

Since I’m hoping to get some good feedback, I’m offering a little incentive out of my own pocket. I recently found in my possession a couple of method-related items that I would love to pass along to a lucky winner!

First, this reusable, self-stuffing bag:

This bag was a popular method schwag item a few years ago; they gave them away all over the place. The bag stuffs into a little blue zip pouch sewn into its seam. I hardly used it, as I bought my favorite set of bags just after I received this one. So, while it’s kind of old, it’s not very used!

And this book:

Squeaky Green: The Method Guide to Detoxing Your Home

Again, I think this was from a contest I won or something; I can’t remember how I got it. It’s a great little book: it played a pretty big role in helping me clean up my act a few years ago. But, it’s the type of information that doesn’t really need to be revisited too often, so I’m ready to pass it on.

If you want to know more about it, Barnes & Noble Studio has a sneak peek of Squeaky Green in this video interview of authors and method co-founders Eric Ryan and Adam Lowry:

AND, if there are leftovers from the giveaway, I’ll send you a bunch more Smarty Dish, too! And….if you ask very nicely, maybe even a batch of Health Cookies to sweeten the deal. :)

Remember, we’re encouraging generosity this holiday season: You are sending me your mailing address in order to receive 2 samples for yourself and 2 to give away. (Psst: these would make great stocking stuffers!)

I will send out samples from now until December 3. If you are going to enter the contest, you will have until December 12th to send me your (super fun and creative!) feedback for judging. I’ll open the polls on December 13 and announce a winner on December 17.

Feel free to leave comments if you have anything to ask or say, but for privacy’s sake you should probably send your mailing address to me via email: heylaurawhat (at) gmail (dot) com.
