Greener cleaning products can be a lot cheaper than the conventional noxious stuff — if you concoct your own. But if you’ve got a friend who’s still cleaning with bleach every week, you might try nominating her or him for eco-cleaning product company Seventh Generation’s new contest: Under the Sink Makeover.

seventh by you.

Nominate a friend who could use some decluttering and detox help, and he or she could win a year’s worth of cleaning products from Seventh Generation, an in-home consultation with Dr. Alan Greene, and a green retreat for the both of you to New York City.

Just complete the nomination form — and try to include a photo of the sad state of the under-the-sink area of your friend’s home. Get your entry in before Aug. 14 — and good luck!
