Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps – Almond Organic Liquid Soap

I found this years ago in California at Mothers Market. The package is a little wacky, has all sorts of jibberish on it, but no matter, the soap is awesome and will get almost any bad smell off of your hands. Its certified under the USDA National Organic Program, and also certified Fair Trade – so you can feel good about buying it – plus the almond scent, which is my favorite, just makes you feel happy. The scent is lasting even after you wash it off, and gives lots of suds with just a few drops. When i first bought it, it said 18 in 1, but you could probably do a lot more with it.

Microfiber Ultra Terry Cloths

We used to use paper towels to clean everything, until I read about how much waste one household creates by using paper towels – real simple magazine did an article about lessening your footprint on the earth, and everyday changes you can do to make a difference. I’ll write more on that later, but for now.. Its a great idea to get about 20 of these buggers, and when you finish using them, throw them in the washing machine and you’re good to go! They are microfiber so they pick up much better than paper towels. and they are really absorbent – AND great on glass! I bought mine from http://www.microfibertech.com/, about $10.00 for a pack of 10.

Baggu’s

Doin a little thing to help the environment.. These cute reusable grocery bags come in a lot of bright colors, and one of them can hold as many as 2-3 plastic grocery store bags.. They fold up into a pouch that you can throw in your purse.. I think so many of us feel like being green is too much work, but if we all make simple small changes we can make a big difference..

Some other small changes, use only recycled toilet paper.. If every household in the us replaced one roll of regular t.p. with recycled t.p., 423,900 trees would be saved.. So I figured why not just use only recycled tp.. Things like that, very easy..
