Let’s face it: We do not live in a perfect world. We add to landfills. Some of us still spray with pesticides while others can’t let go of fabric softener. Most of us agree that our home just isn’t green enough. Many of our Facebook friends clearly feel the same way. From replacing chemical cleaners with natural alternatives to bringing in more plants to installing solar panels, our friends shared what they’d like to do to create a healthier home. “I would get rid of our carpet and do a hardwood option.”—Jessica L. “Start making my own cleaning and personal hygiene products. I wish I had a clothes line and could add more air-cleaning plants.”—Deborah Anne “Install filtering screens so... Continue Reading →
