Green Tip


Green Tip #1
– Say “Goodbye” to dryer sheets.

Reasoning: Dryer sheets not only further pollute our landfills with plastics but also often use chemicals that contribute to indoor and outdoor air pollution. These chemicals hidden under the term “fragrance” can cause a variety of health issues including asthma attacks and migraines.

Alternatives: Wool balls, an old sweater, and/or hang drying clothes. These alternatives are not only healthier for the environment, but also save money. Wool balls or an old sweater can even cut down on drying time.
