Living green has gone mainstream. Whether to save money or save the planet, more people have adopted an eco-friendly mindset.
But now that our collective consciousness has been raised, how do we implement green living in our daily lives?
How can we design our homes to be eco-friendly and economical? What are the hot new products we should consider? Once we move in, how can we clean and maintain our homes in an earth-friendly way?
Fortunately, corporate America has responded to the increasing demand for green products. From the grocery store to the lumberyard, consumers have more options than ever before....and more confusion too, about labeling, sources for credible reviews, where to find the new products, and resources for educators.
Find the answers at this AAFCS educational webinar (1.5 PDUs) and discover how you can reduce your carbon footprint, save money, and protect your health by living green.
