From switching away from plastic wrap and throw away sponges to using natural cleaning techniques, there are lots of simple changes that any household can make to start helping out the planet.
Like kitchen items, personal care area offers a wide range of possibilities to green up. For example, switch your foaming plastic bottle hand soap for a natural soap bar, replace disposable razors with reusable ones made from stainless steel or other metals that won’t end up in a landfill.
