Linving Green Thursday

We try to recycle, reuse, repurpose and use energy efficiently as much as we can but there is always something more we can do to help our planet and ourselves. By going green you benefit not only the environment but yourself too! think about it this way, if you chose organic produce you keep chemicals and pesticides out of your body but you also prevent them from entering the waterways.

Did you know that vinegar is a great cleanser?
By using vinegar you can disinfect and clean while avoiding harsh chemicals and it is cheaper too!
It is very effective in killing mold, bacteria and germs. Cleaning with vinegar is a good way to avoid chemicals.

To deodorize the garbage disposal. – Pour ½ cup baking soda and ½ cup hot white distilled vinegar, let it sit for 5 minutes then let the hot water run down the disposal.

To clean the microwave.- Mix ½ cup white distilled vinegar and ½ water in a microwave safe bowl. Bring it to a boil inside the microwave, wipe clean.

Another way to go green is to make your appliances more efficient.

Did you know that a full freezer is more efficient? Try to keep yours as packed as possible and when you start running low on food put reusable ice packs so it stays cooler and uses less energy.
