Everything that we throw into the trash is something that does not sustain the earth. So, as a final step in your home reset, I recommend taking stock of your home's environmental impact and vowing to make some shifts. Your cleaning routine is a great place to start.
Since I moved part time to the country, I've found myself paying closer attention to what I consume in my home. Personally, in my household, I switched to using cloth napkins for cleaning up wipes and spills. I've been known to drive friends crazy who like to reach for paper towels—but what about trying microfiber cloths? Or switching to sustainable, eco-friendly paper products?
Another easy way to make a change is to whip up your own cleaners. I fill a reusable spray bottle with 1 cup of white vinegar and 2 tablespoons of baking soda and keep it under my kitchen sink. When the two interact, they bubble and form a powerful deodorizing solution that I use to clean just about everything.
What works for me might not work for you, but even so, take stock to see if you can't make even one change this year to help Mother Earth.
