A Tip from Method's Twitter Page

As you've know, I'm a big fan of method products. I love their fun fragrances and how well they clean, but most of all I love that they are safe for the environment.

I follow Method on my Twitter page, and today they posted something that I thought would be a useful tool  for everyone. Below is a chart making your trash and recycle day a little easier for you. You can right click and copy this image for yourself to print out. It also highlights what can go inside a compost pile too. You might remember this post on composting that we shared a couple months ago.

What do you recycle or compost most often? Is it water bottles, yogurt containers or banana peels? Share with us!

The Truth About Antibacterial Soaps

With flu season on the horizon and the talk of a new vaccine for the Swine Flu (H1N1), I thought this topic was appropriate. Is anti-bacterial soap truly the best way to keep hands clean and germ-free or is the good old soap and hot water enough? What about that infamous ingredient calld triclosan. What do we really know about it? It's time to find  out!

I was inspired to post about this topic after visiting one of my favorite decorating blogs called Young House Love, which often post on green products and solutions. Since they have taken the time to write a informative post on the topic, I thought, why re-invent the wheel?

Here is the link to learn the truth about antibacterial soaps and how they affect you and the environment. You might be surprised at what you learn!

One of my favorite soap brands is called Pure & Natural. They have four great fragrances and I can easily pick them up from Target. They are often on sale there and I find coupons for them too, so I can usually buy them for under $2. Another great options include Dr. Bronner's pure castile soap.

Do you use antibacterial soaps? Will you continue to? What is your favorite brand of natural, non antibacterial soap?
