Greening your life starts with you!
Spring is in full effect. Now is the perfect time to go to your local

dairy are produced when livestock are not fed products
containing chemicals or pesticides.
Green Snacks are Great For Kids – Apples, oranges, carrot sticks,
pears, spinach, salads, soft boiled eggs, yogurt, nuts, grapes,
Water and natural juices are a much better choice above sodas
and sugary drinks

stainless steel water bottles are best!

Ditch those high priced chemical laden brand cleaners and go
green by using vinegar and hydrogen peroxide to keep surfaces
