1. Ride a bicycle. Riding a bicycle is great exercise and uses zero gasoline - a very green activity.
2. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Reduce your consumption and do your best to buy groceries in bulk, reducing packaging. Reuse storage and packaging containers. Recycle as much as possible. We can work together to prevent more garbage from rotting in toxic landfills for years to come!
3. Green your bathroom, medicine cabinet, and kitchen. Many toxic petro-chemicals lurk in your everyday cosmetics, personal care products, and cleaning products. One of the most important things you can do to green your life is give your bathroom a green makeover.
It's the year 2011 in the 21st Century and it's very timely to make the conscious green choice to vote with your wallet and only purchase products from companies who genuinely care about the environment, the animals, and the humans. Become an avid label reader and simplify your life.
Did you know that all synthetic color dyes that are in foods and cosmetics are derived from coal tar, which is derived from crude oil petroleum? So, unless the shampoo, cleanser, or hand soap you're using contains henna, peppermint, and natural wild blue indigo for natural color tint, you're exposing your health and your family's health to poisonous toxins that are going to put your family's health at dangerous risk.
