Yesterday, In the Garden, we honored Green Cleaning.
We honored the seasons of spring and autumn and the traditions of cleansing and clearing associated with these seasons, traditions currently in action all over the world. We also honored the coming of Earth Day and the value of our wee living planet, and the awareness of our collective place and choices in it that cascade and heighten around the globe at this time of year.
We honored these things by welcoming Helyn Bartholomay of Helyn's Clean Solutions to the show. Helyn is the creator of a line of handcrafted, all-natural, safe, non-toxic and earth-friendly cleaning products. She shared with us how her awareness of the health impacts, as well as environmental influences came to the surface in her life and inspired her to make her own cleaning products ... and eventually offer them for sale.
Helyn shared some very empowering information during the show, and while I wouldn't repeat it all here, I do want to share with you a few of the resources that were mentioned during the show ...
Homemade - 702 Ways to Save Money and Save the Earth, from Readers' Digest
Even if you missed the show, I hope that these few resources will inspire and enlighten you to make cleaner cleaning choices ... for your health, for your family, for your community, for the earth and for the future.
And be sure to join us In the Garden next Thursday (4/23) at 11:30 AM, eastern for The Sustainable Garden with our guest, Bill Duesing, Executive Director of the CT chapter of the Northeast Organic Farmers Association, Organic Farmer, Educator, Activist and all-around nice guy. Don't miss it!
Be well by Nature!
