3 Ways to “Green” Your Life

1. Ditch the plastic. Use glass or ceramics whenever possible to store food and water, avoid putting anything plastic in the microwave, and opt for a glass or stainless steel water bottle. How nice are these glass bkr bottles? 

2. Switch [at least] one of your body care products to a natural option that is free of phthalates, parabens, aluminum, etc. (examples include shampoo, conditioner soap, deodorant). This is my current deodorant and I must say, I love it!

3. I often get asked which foods we should be buying organic. I like to direct people to the Environmental Working Group’s list of “Clean Fifteen” and “Dirty Dozen”. If you currently aren’t buying any of your produce organic, I would start with this year’s heavy hitters; spinach and strawberries. Click on photo for the complete list:
