  • TOP TIPS FOR GREENING HOUSING
    • Freshen indoor air with fresheners that are really fresh. Avoid bringing phthalates – toxins like DET - into your home found in most standard fresheners. Choose Febreze Air Effects Air Refresher or Renuzit Subtle Effects.
    • Buy Plants. According NASA, tighter housing envelopes increase your home’s energy efficiency but also prevent harmful indoor air pollutants like formaldehyde (found in furniture, rugs, paints, cabinets – you name it) from being properly ventilated. One plant per 100 to 120 square feet of living space can clean air and negate the effects of harmful toxins.
    • Put locally grown food on your dining table. The average meal travels about 1700 miles to get to your plate. Locally grown vegetables, meats and dairy provide food that can be fresher, more nutritious and delicious. Chefs know this too. Sustianabletable.org – www.sustainabletable.org helps you find supermarkets, restaurants, caterers and even butchers in your area that offer locally grown food.
    • Power your apartments with green energy . 600 power utilities in 36 states offer green energy options. See a list of providers at epa.gov/greenpower.
    • Use natural cleaning products made with plant-based, biodegradable ingredients.  Green Works is a new, full line of natural, biodegradable cleanings products packaged in bottles containing at least 25% recycled content . Or do a google search for green cleaning services near you.
