  • Breathe Easier at Home: Improving Indoor Air Quality

    The air we breathe in our homes can impact the way we live. Many people forgot that air pollution also occurs indoors. If your home is not properly ventilated it prevents the flow of outdoor air that helps dilute harmful emissions and carry them out of the home. Both high temperature and humidity levels can increase the concentrations of some pollutants. The effects of poor indoor air quality include some respiratory diseases, heart disease, and cancer.

    There are three main strategies for improving the air quality in your home.
  • "Green" Cleaning Products For Your Home

    The cleaning products found in our homes undoubtedly do the job of cleaning our houses, but they are making a bigger impact on the environment, and that impact is anything but sanitary. Conventional cleaners can contain cancer-causing agents, allergens and other, possibly deadly, toxins.
  • Benefits of Using Organic Cotton

    Organic cotton is cotton grown without the use of toxic chemicals. Instead, it is grown using methods and materials that have a low impact on the environment. Conventional cotton is grown using toxic and harmful chemicals, including twenty-five percent of the world's insecticides and more than ten percent of the world's pesticides. The benefits of organic cotton come from the fact that healthier agricultural methods are used to farm it.
