A Little Green

  • Glade recently introduced soy candles from The Fragrance Collection. The orange vanilla, mcintosh apple, and earthly awakenings scents currently offered are all more than 92% natural. The orange vanilla is by far my favorite, as it reminds me of dreamsicles I used to devour when I was little.
  • I consider myself a snob when it comes to paper towels and toilet paper, and have used the same brands as far back as I can remember. But, when I had the chance to try White Cloud GreenEarth products, I changed my way of thinking. I'm impressed with the absorbency of the paper towels, and the fact that they are made from 100% recycled fibers and use less packaging.
  • I also love Skoy cloths. They are absorbent and reusable, lasting through several months of use. With Skoy cloths, I have the option of cleaning them in the dishwasher or washing machine. I can even microwave it to remove germs. According to the Skoy site, if households used just 3 rolls of paper towels a year, we would save 120,000 tons of waste. A 4-pack is only $5.99, so you could save quite a bit of money too.
What are your favorite green products?
