Earth Friendly Home: Tips for Organizing and Cleaning the Green Way!

While clearing out our clutter, it's easy to forget about our environment. Sure, it takes a little more time to sort recyclable materials, but every small effort adds up at the end of the day.
 
Here are a few eco-friendly organization and cleaning tips that you can implement during your household chores. Trust me, they're easy - I shy away from the hard stuff.


Recycling Bins: Location is Everything

We all know we should be placing recycling bins in our kitchen to sort our glass, plastics and paper products before tossing out the trash. You can make this even easier by placing the bins where they're most convenient for you. In other words, if you do most of your paperwork in your home office, then it might make more sense to place your paper bin next to your shredder in your home office. You'll quickly find that more old newspapers and flyers end up in the right place, instead of the general kitchen trash. To help you figure out what to sort and where to start,  here's a handy list of recyclable items.

Donate: Beyond Your Clothing

If you already donate old clothing to Goodwill or The Salvation Army, that's great! But there are other items around your home that can be donated as well. Old office, art and craft supplies like fabric scraps and notepads can be given to local after school programs for art projects. Before you toss out those old faded blankets and towels that no longer fit your decor, give your local ASPCA or animal shelter a call - they happily accept old blankets for the animals they care for.  If you're no longer using bleach in your cleaning kits but still have some lingering in your cupboards,  animals shelters accept that as well! You'd be surprised what every day items an animal shelter can use. Keep in mind that many non profits provide a pick up service, so if you've got a lot of stuff you can clear your clutter without even leaving the house.

Check out these links to Goodwill , Salvation Army   more information on items they accept for donation. ASPCA and Animal Shelters accept household items as mentioned above, but their needs vary by location. Contact your local shelter to find out their current needs!

Recycled Bags, Reusable Bags and Boxes

Many grocery stores offer reusable bags now. Buy them once, use them all the time!  Reusable bags are obviously better for the environment, but they also allow you to save space if you tend to stockpile your plastic grocery bags for other uses like most people. You'll want to make sure that your reusable bags are washer/laundry friendly - let's keep those germs out of our groceries. In addition to switching to reusable bags for groceries, make the switch from regular trash bags to recycled trash bags. Many major brands offer recycled trash bags now, which are made with recycled materials, and are recyclable - so if you're using them for storage you can toss them in the recycle bin when you're done!
