With Earth Day coming up soon – April 22, 2011 – here are some ways to do your part for the environment.
One of the quickest and least expensive way is to switch from store brand cleaning products to Shaklee cleaning products. Not only are Shaklee cleaners biodegradable, they are phosphate free and kind to the Earth. So you can clean your home without worrying about what’s going down the drain into the water or into the atmosphere. And because Shaklee cleaners are concentrated, there is less packaging to throw away. That’s good news for you – saving you money since you’re not paying for the water that’s added to most other cleaners, and good new for our overflowing landfills. Some of my favorite Shaklee products are Basic H, Basic I, Basic G, and the At Ease paste cleanser. If you are interested in Shaklee products, send me a request for more information, and I’ll refer you to someone great.
Another way to help the environment is by investing in energy-saving home improvements. These improvements will not only lower your energy bills and benefit the environment; they could also make your home a more comfortable place to live and enhance its resale value. I have attached a PDF to this post titled “Is Your Home an Energy Hog?” (Compliment of the Buffini company) with suggestions ranging from easy and inexpensive upgrades to more significant retrofits. Just click on the link below titled “Is Your Home an Energy Hog?” to read or download the PDF.
A home energy audit can help to isolate the ways that your home is wasting energy and gives you an idea where to focus your efforts.

Happy Earth Day!
