Green How Tos

Let’s face it – going green can be daunting.  That’s why we’ve constructed our list of green how tos.  We recommend you start with our How to Green Your Life, and think through the Big Green Five:

  1. Air/Water
  2. Energy
  3. Food and Stuff we Use
  4. Cleaning
  5. Wearables/Touchables

Following the twin Do No Harm and Reduce, Reuse, Recycle principles, we can attack all five on all fronts, and we make sure we carry a range of products to help you green each of these.

But for more advanced greeners, you might also want to take some time to look through our Composting How To Guide, and check out the myriad of composters carried on Greenhome.com.  Composting is easier than you think, and often vastly underestimated in its environmental impact potential.

There are so many benefits to composting:

  • Reduces 1/3 of the trash that would traditionally go to landfills
  • Saves money and resources (no need to buy fertilizer)
  • Enriches soil naturally and organically
  • It’s fun and educational (your family will love to watch the process happen)
  • Helps reduce greenhouse gas
  • Enabling things to return their natural cycles just feels great!
  • Save $$ on your garbage bill
  • Provides a soil amendment for your veggie garden
  • Supports community, keeps them green, keeps things local
