EWG Wants to Clear the Confusion

With so much how-to-go-green (and even from the marine people, how-to-go-blue) advice out there, it’s hard to know where to start. The Environmental Working Group wants to help.  They created a bright, clear, and simple checklist to print out and take around the house to green your kitchen, bathrooms, products, bedrooms, the outdoor areas, and your main lounging spots.

If you’ve been wanting to get into the flow of better living when it comes to toxics, this is a great introduction.  Just don’t forget to followup eventually and learn why that PVC shower curtain isn’t the best idea for your health, how “fragrance” can actually be smoke and mirrors, and why organic produce for some varieties is an absolute must.

How do I stack up against the list?  Well, I’ve still got a lot of work to do.  Particularly when it comes to letting go of personal care products that contain fragrance and other toxics as well as getting the plastic out of my life.  It’s a long process my friends, embrace the battle and know that it will take some time!
