We work with a lot of families who love that we use green cleaning products to make their home shine. But after we leave, they want to continue doing their part to create a home that is better for the environment and their community. While it may not be realistic to redo all of the products in your house and turn them into more eco-friendly solutions, there are small differences you and your family can make to impact the environmental health of your community.
- Drink certified organic coffee. When you purchase certified organic coffee for your morning brew, you are getting grounds that came from a farm that was certified by the United States Department of Agriculture as using sustainable agricultural practices.
- Bring your own cup. If you drink coffee or tea on the go, bring your own reusable cup to the coffee shop. Your thoughtfulness will avoid wasting cardboard and plastic on the to-go cups so often given at coffee shops, and will also reduce the local garbage stream.
- Print double. When you are printing papers at home or the office, save a few trees by printing on both sides of the page instead of just one.
- Turn off electronics. You may not have all high efficiency products in your home, but remembering to simply turn your electronics to the sleep or off position can help you save money and be a little bit greener.
Every small step makes a cumulative difference over a year—or a decade. With these easy tips, you can make your home a little bit more eco-friendly and do your part to reduce the impact on the environment.
Get everyone in your household on board. Teach your family by example—and by explaining to them the benefits of making the switch to a more green way of living.
