Global Green USA Green School Makeover Competition Presented by Pureology

Every child deserves a learning environment that’s safe, healthy, and optimal for learning. Unfortunately, many schools across the country are subjecting children to unhealthy classrooms with poor lighting, inefficient energy usage, or harmful toxins. When a school goes green, children AND the environment benefit!

I put in a submission for our local elementary school, because I want optimal health for our kids and our land. The funds could be used for water conservation, waste reduction, energy efficient upgrades, and more.
Do you have ideas for how your local school can go green?

Ecover Zero Natural Laundry Powder Review

I have been looking for a laundry powder without fragrances or phosphates, so I was pleased to receive a complimentary box of Ecover Zero natural laundry powder from Naturally Savvy
http://www.naturallysavvy.com/


Ecover Laundry Powder ZERO has plant-based and mineral ingredients so it’s safe for my family but strong enough to clean our piles of laundry—and we do have big piles! The powder is biodegradable and not tested on animals. Sounds good to me!
I have tried it on two loads of clothing so far—one white, one colored—and everything came out sparkling clean.
Best of all, I don’t have to fret about harming our health or the environment!
My only warning is that it’s * Not suitable for wool and silk. *
The 48 oz box I have right now should be good for 20 loads on a top-load machine (or 26 on a HE machine).

Ecover gives some eco-washing tips on their site: “Choose the lowest possible washing temperature to reduce your CO2 footprint. Correct dosing reduces the impact of washing on the environment.”
