    The US makes up only 5% of the world population, but it throws away enough plastic bottles in a week to encircle the Earth 5 times! On average, ONE supermarket goes through 60,500,000 paper bags per year! Bring a reusable bag instead! A modern glass bottle takes 4000 years or more to decompose.

    Making natural cleaners and pesticides isn’t that complicated. Using natural and biodegradable chemicals whenever possible is better for the environment.
