2. Switching to Norwex -- for sure the 2nd biggest change in our greener life is using Norwex products. 6 months ago I hosted a party for my friend who just started selling Norwex, and earned quite a few products for free, and I am HOOKED! This company sells household and personal care products that aren't made from chemicals. Among other things. I have several microfiber cloths that I use with water to clean the house with, and I use their detergent for our laundry. My other favorite product is a mattress cleaner I spray on our beds/pillows/upholstered furniture that has greatly improved our sleep because we aren't coughing and sneezing from the dust and dust mites anymore! I really think switching to Norwex has helped Chip's eczema because it's reduced the allergens in his environment. I do not have to buy paper towels or household cleaners anymore and I'm SO glad I don't have a cabinet full of poisons for my kids to discover.
3. Natural personal products -- my friend and I made our own deodorant which I think works pretty well. I use coconut oil to moisturize (I just started using it for Chip, but borrow it myself too!) most of the time -- though I do still enjoy Bath and Body works lotions! I use the Norwex toothbrush and Tom's of Maine toothpaste -- but I think I may try making my own toothpaste as well before too long. These things are all cutting down on the chemicals in our house and also are really cost-effective!

Do you have any greener life ideas for me to take on next?
