What is the meaning of being "green"?

 How To Be More Green At Home

How To Be More Green At Home

Being green was a big thing about 10 years ago. It seemed like everyone knew about being more sustainable and protecting the planet. But in my world things have changed. I used to ride my bike to work and school. I worked at a health food store called Sprouts and I ate really healthy natural non processed food. 

After becoming a parent and getting married I lost that momentum of caring for our planet. I know that the household products we use are not healthy. I know that the soaps we use go down the drain and end up in our lakes, rives and are causing hard on those environments. But what can we do to change our lives to be more sustainable?

As the gatekeeper of our homes we vote with our dollars on what products we will accept into our homes. We can choose to make our own household cleaning products from baking soda and vinegar like our grandparents and great grandparents had done. We also have the choose to by products that contain bleach and chlorine. Everything in life is a choice. The question is how do you want to live your life?

Why should you care about being more "green"?

By choosing to be more green and sustainable you are choosing health. You are saying "no" to the big corporations that do not have your health in mind. It may should unbelievable because of all the commercials we see about how Clorox cares about us to keep our homes safe from bacteria. But do they really care about of health? The answer is no, they do not! They are selling toxic products that are very harmful to the human body but all we think of when seeing a bottle of Clorox bleach is how it kills the bad bacteria.Hmm...
