It’s Not Easy Being Green

I’m not sure that a blog is the best place to discuss random thoughts out loud. But alas.

This week I have been giving a lot of thought to a topic that has received little attention here at the Kitchen Table thus far. But it’s a topic I am very interested in hearing from people about–and certainly a topic I would like to research further. What is it?

Green cleaning.

What is green cleaning? Basically, it involves house cleaning with products that will harm neither the family nor the environment. Green cleaning takes a step back and evaluates the benefits of cleaning with homemade products or “natural substances” vs. conventional, typically-chemical-laden products.

This topic is really gaining momentum in our green-conscious society, and as a result, there is a plethora of reading material and home resources available. On my to-do list (ding! ding! ding!) is the task of doing some initial research. I wouldn’t categorize myself as a green cleaner or as a non-green cleaner.

I sort of use chemicals while throwing in some baking soda for good measure.

One thing I know for sure. Ongoing research shows lots of benefits for green cleaning. This is a trend worth considering. Thoughts?
