I don’t generally buy paper products or harsh chemicals unless I have something totally messy to deal with. Hutch actually told me recently that I’m the most eco-concious person he’s ever known in real life. I was shocked, honestly, because I’m not a supper hippie tree-hugger by any means. I just try to be aware and minimize my footprint on the Earth. It seems natural to want to do so, and I find it a tad insulting when people think me washing my napkins is “strange.”
The Green Cleaning Coach sent me a little kit to help my efforts to minimize waste and be gentler on the planet starting with my home.
My cleaning kit included one Skoy cloth, one fancy glass cleaning cloth, an eco-sponge, a sample of Just Bee hand creme, and a small muslin bag of lavender. The Skoy cloth is my favorite, but I get some heavy use from my blue glass cloth wiping down the sliding glass doors from all the kid grime. I used the muslin bag of lavender as an air freshener for the car, and the hand creme is nearly gone from post-dishwashing hand maintenance. I haven’t used the eco-sponge yet, but it’s time is coming. If it’s anything like the other products I know I’ll be pleased. (I was contemplating trying it out as a magic eraser type thing… Gaia has some fancy artwork on her closet door I need to deal with…)
I also had the opportunity to read The Joy of Green Cleaning, which was really informative and packed full of awesome green-living recipes to utilize while cleaning. It was exciting to see that I already own most of the ingredients to make this stuff!

Going green is easy when you have encouragement delivered right to your email, am I right? We all have to clean up every now and then. Might as well keep things super fresh by leaving all those chemicals behind.
