As an advocate for good health, I usually try to choose the 'greener' option over other more dangerous and/or wasteful options. Generally speaking, if it's bad for your health or the planet, I try to avoid it.

My goal is to help you take the chore out of living green by sharing fun new ecofriendly ideas that you can try today... or any day!
