You’d be surprised at how many people who love to garden don’t necessarily make the connection that their garden should be eco-friendly.  In fact, when I first started gardening, I didn’t make the connection at all.

What You Need to Know About So-Called Sustainable Fabrics

Once, while shopping at this super-luxe home boutique, I spotted a stack of bamboo bath towels that were so soft, I wanted to bury my face in them.  They had a subtle and elegant sheen and were marketed as being ec0-friendly.

Food Choices for a Better Planet

While I’ve always been interested in green living, I didn’t learn until just a few years ago how our food choices can have a big impact on the environment.

Green Laundry Tips to Save the Earth, Your Money, and your Fancy Jeans

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times. Living in a way that’s environmentally responsible doesn’t require us to be extremists.
