Inexpensive BPA Free Water Bottles

Water Bottle

After doing some research into BPA free plastic water bottles, I found that BPA free doesn’t always mean toxin free.  As a matter of fact, many BPA free items contain “regrettable substitutions.” Regrettable substitution is when one chemical is swapped out for another chemical that may be just as bad or worse. Having learned this… Read More

After my last post on one year of using homemade laundry detergent, I was lambasted for the amount of water I use for washing clothes. Mark found my water usage “repulsive,” while Dee Dee couldn’t figure out, ” what are you washing so much of?” As I’ve said over and over again, living green is… Read More

We are so accustomed to adding a cleaning additive to our water in order to clean anything. Have you ever tried cleaning your windows with just water first? Just for grins, fill a spray bottle with water. Use it to clean your windows before you attempt to use a cleaning additive (even if the additive… Read More

A rather cryptic title, but knowing that this blog is all about making green choices, you’ve gotta guess where I’m going with this entry. Yep, it’s all about water conservation and turning off the faucet in the morning when you brush your teeth and/or shave. I’m not going to spout statistics of how many gallons… Read More
