As a kid in middle school (many moons ago), I heard a radio ad on my favorite station exclaiming “The earth is our home. CLEAN UP YOUR ROOM!” I loved this ad so much I made a poster of it as a school Earth Day project and kept it on my bedroom door. This confused my mom so much, because, I never cleaned up my actual room. Read More “Plastic-Free July Eco-Challenge, Day 20: The Earth is Our Home…Clean Up Your Room”

There are days when I truly appreciate living on a small community island. Today was definitely one of those days.
The local library hosted a wonderful workshop this afternoon on Do-It-Yourself Cleaning Products, a topic right up my alley. Living in the Pacific Northwest, in the Puget Sound, I am very aware of chemicals I use on my body, in my house, and with my family. Read More “Stay Calm and Clean Naturally”
