Eco-Dad giveaway from The Greener Good

Tuesday, June 7th, 2011

In honor of Father’s Day, The Greener Good will be giving away a handmade picture frame made out of recycled bicycle parts (a $36 value) to one lucky winner per day during the week leading up to Father’s Day. To be entered to win, post a photo of yourself with your dad on The Greener Good’s Facebook page at There will also be coupon downloads available on The Greener Good’s Facebook page for a FREE solid shampoo bar (while supplies last) and recycled bicycle chain bottle opener key chains to be given away sporadically.

The all-natural solid shampoo bars are especially great for dads who travel, as they are perfect to carry on the plane. You won’t have to repackage just a few ounces; being solid also means you won’t have to worry about leaks and spills. Shampoo bars also translate into convenience because one bar works from your head down to your toes. Makes a great camping bar as well for outdoor dads!

Be sure to also check out the Eco-Dad Gift Guide on The Greener Good website. Below are the links to the featured items:
