Home Eco-Friendly Organizing
Geralin: Julie, what residential systems have people developed to maintain their housekeeping chores in more earth-friendly ways?
Julie: Great question! When working with clients after we organize and/or declutter, my next suggestion is to use green cleaners. Since 1950, at least 70,000 new chemical compounds have been invented but only fraction have been tested for human toxicity.
Indoor air pollution is now as much of a concern (if not more) than outdoor air pollution. DIY green cleaners are easy, save money, smell better and you can find many recipes on the internet. Some of my favorite cleaners you can buy: Simple Green and eco-me.com products. Mrs. Meyers and Method are also widely available in most stores.
