Green Up Your Home!
Ecologically conscious people are always looking for ways to green up their home. While this is certainly a positive move, it also brings rewards that extend beyond the environmental impact and into your pocket book.
A green home uses non-toxic building materials; this translates into less toxic air, which means a healthier you – less costly sick days and more energy to accomplish what you need. Using natural ingredients to clean your home will also cut down on toxic environment and air. I have included several easy recipes for all natural cleaners in my book; all using household ingredients you use every day! They cost significantly less than the toxic store bought brands.
