Q: I tend to believe that the "greenest" thing I can do in my home is to make due with what I have — buy less, use less, make what I have last. But I'm also pretty sure that there are things in my home it could be necessary and worthwhile to replace for my own health, but I'm wondering what those are...? Teflon pans? Plastic containers?
Where do I draw the line between using what I already have and making the decision that it would be better to upgrade to a greener option? And then, what do I do with those things I want to get rid of, if they're so unhealthy to begin with?
