Install a Water Filter – Making sure that you and your family stays hydrated is of great importance, but there are better ways to accomplish the goal than buying disposable, plastic bottles full of water. Invest in reusable water bottles for every member of the family, and spring for a water filter. You’ll keep that plastic out of rotation, and you’ll be teaching kids a valuable lesson about stewardship.
Stop Buying Cleaning Products – Chemical cleaning products are not only expensive, they can also wreak havoc with allergies, skin sensitivities and asthma. They can also be manufactured under conditions that are less than healthy for the environment. Instead, find recipes you like for simple, effective homemade cleaning products. Allergy and asthma sufferers will be happier, and so will the earth.
