Ways to “Green” Your Home
1. The first step is to assess the products you already have. Read the labels of the products you use regularly and if you can’t understand the ingredients then do some research! Make sure you educate yourself in case your products are harmful to you and your home.
2. Whenever you’re buying a new cleaning product or even body product, check out the amazing ewg.org! The Environmental Working group provides a database where you can check on the toxicity of any product we are using on our bodies or homes.
3. Swap out products as they run out. Change up your laundry soap and dishwashing detergents to more environmentally-friendly options. For every toxic cleaner there is a healthier option. Some soaps and detergents even have refillable options to save further on packaging waste.
4. Incorporate essential oils into your life ! Not only are they super trendy right now but their aromas hold great health benefits. For example, peppermint is a great detractor of bugs or mice and is the best coverup for animal accident smells. It even eliminates headache pain! *Citrus is great for your kitchen as it eliminates food smells and puts freshness into the air.
