You want a "green" lifestyle, but it's confusing. Where do you start to become more eco-conscious, or eco-friendly? How can you "green" your home?
Start small, by remembering the three R's: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
Reduce consumption by eliminating single-use plastic in your home. Plastic wrap can be replaced by good old-fashioned waxed paper, or the new, reusable waxed cloth wraps.
Carry your purchases home in inexpensive, eco-friendly organic cotton bags.
Wash, then use them over and over again. If you do end up with a plastic bag or container from the store, reuse it over and over, then recycle it locally.
