    What Does Go Green Mean?

    What Does Go Green Mean? Green can mean many different things to different people. For some, it means simply environmentally friendly and to others means living a life that is not dangerous to the health of people or animals.

    When you Go Green you only use green house products that are healthy for the environment and include no toxins, you recycle to help save land fills, and you do everything possible to live healthy and reduce the impact on our earth. By living green and going green you reduce any negative impact on the planet in all possible ways.

    Green cleaning products are also called eco-friendly products.

    Many green products are packaged in recycled packaging, are biodegradable, and contain no phosphates, chlorine, artificial fragrances, or artificial colors. The main goal of green cleaning is to use eco-friendly cleaning solutions, recycle, using organic when possible, and promote methods that keep our environment healthy. Everyone should live in an eco friendly home!

    Many people are also finding that green building also reduces the impact on the environment and many businesses are now going green to help reduce the impact on our earth.

    By living green you seek to reduce negative impact on the planet in every way possible!

    Go Green, Save Green
