Over the last few years, I've started making small changes that have made a big difference in how I see certain things. Since taking note of Earth Day each year, it's made me more mindful of things that I do on a regular basis that negatively impact the environment.
This past year, I've found some "recipes" for making non-toxic cleaners, air fresheners, and even unclogging drains. I was a bit skeptical of the natural drain cleaner at first, but pouring toxic chemicals down the drain pained me each time and the price drained my wallet.
I found a quick solution and have done it several times.
*Updated 6/8/2013* It pains me to say it, but I had to buy a toxic drain cleaner. Maybe the natural way works for a while, but sadly it wasn't enough for my purposes.
Also, I've written many times here before about my adventures with house plants. I'm a huge fan of bringing the outdoors in. My once tiny plant, now 20 years later is the tree above. I've been blessed with a green thumb! At least most of the time.
So this year for Earth Day, here are a few green links for you.
