Today's Assignment

Today is our last assignment for the week, and, again, it won't take you too long, so use this to your advantage. It involves taking a hard look at the cleaners you use around your home and going green with at least one of them. Already using eco cleaners? Then simply replenish or restock.

Since we use cleaners in our home EVERYDAY and they can be extremely harsh and toxic, this is - in my mind - the most important place to start the conversion of your home to a much more environmentally sustainable project. AND, it's not only good for the environment, it's going to be better for your health as well.

HINT: Want to get ahead? Start Monday's project this weekend. :-)
