It's time to celebrate--we're having our first giveaway! I want to thank all those who have visited the Why We Love Green blog, followed, and left great comments. It has been so much fun getting to meet such great people! This giveaway is sponsored by Clean Teen Reads at, a site that provides detailed reviews of young adult books. Thank you, Clean Teen Reads!

Freebie Finding MomClean Teen Reads is a very useful website where teens and parents can read detailed reviews of young adult books. All reviewed books are carefully read to find and alert readers to any possible Offensive Language, Sex/Nudity/Reproduction, Drugs and Alcohol, Violence and Death, Dishonesty and Criminal Behavior, Witchcraft/Fantasy/the Supernatural, and any other elements that might concern teens or parents. Clean Teen Reads also outlines other useful information like books for reluctant readers, books for boys, and reading levels. New books are added each month.

As stated on the Clean Teen Reads Facebook page
"The website has three sections:
1) a TEEN SECTION provides reviews without getting too specific, so they doesn't spoil the book. Teen and tweens don't need to log in.
2) a PARENT SECTION provides reviews with detailed information, including spoilers. Parents and other adults over 18 may register for free to use this section
3) a SUBSCRIBER SECTION offers enhanced search options. Subscriptions are available to people over 18 for $12 per year."

I definitely recommend Clean Teen Reads to anyone who loves Young Adult literature. I have been able to find great books to read, that I otherwise would not have discovered. And the great part is, I know they're clean! It's hard to find reading material that is clean, and Clean Teen Reads has done the hard work for you! You can go to the site ( or and search over 120 books! And why is this green, you ask? Well, you will save time, resources, and money not buying books that you will later just get rid of. You will also be supporting an online business that creates no waste, has no packaging, etc. If you are interested in an easy way to evaluate books, then Clean Teen Reads is for you.

Clean Teen Reads has graciously offered to sponsor our first giveaway, which features the VistaQuest DV-700 Digital Video Camera!  This Video Camera is a video camcorder, digital still camera, and voice recorder all in one!  It's a cute, compact little camera and looks great for on-the-go use.
