Green Living Guide: Five Green Kitchen Products
We all want to be greener. To make our carbon footprint smaller is not always thought of as easy. There are plenty of ways to start living green so let’s start in the kitchen.
1.) Perf GoGreen Bio-Degradable Trash Bags
A lot of trash bag manufacturers are making their trash bags more eco-friendly. Perf GoGreen bags take it the extra mile, or ten. These bags will almost completely biodegrade within 12-24 months, but are as strong as any other bag while in use! There is also a sticky strip on the bottom of the box so it can stick to the bottom of your trash bucket! They are 100% bio degradable!
2.) Lotus Sanitizing System
We all worry about what is in our food. What could be in your fruits and vegetables? Pesticides and other toxins. With the Lotus Sanitizing System, these worries will melt away, right with the toxins! You fill the system with regular tap water, then add your fruits or vegetables. The Lotus generates ozone, molecule made up of three oxygen atoms, which is a natural sanitizer and infuses it into the water. This will kill 99.9% of any bacteria and eliminates pesticides. You can either sanitize whats in the bowl, or make yourself a bottle of ozonated water to spray around the house as a sanitizer!
3.) GreenWorks Cleaners
Green products, no sacrifice in performance. Made up mostly of coconuts and lemon oils, Clorox GreenWorks products are made to be 100% bio-degradable, are non-allergenic, and are even bottled into fully recyclable plastic! You may think these products are pricey, but really, they are only about $.50 more than the regular competitors, on average.

Not many folks have known about LED bulbs in the past. However, they are starting to replace more and more traditional light bulbs. They are far superior to traditional in all aspects. Durability, high efficiency, and their impressive life-span are all what make them ‘green’.
LED’s by definition are light-emitting-diodes. Clusters of very small light emitting diodes make LED’s shine brighter and more powerfully than traditional bulbs. They are also used in most stoplights and even in building floodlights because of their penetrating power.
Not only are they efficient and durable, but they are also very easy to recycle. They are mercury and halogen free, therefore, Eco-friendly. No need to worry about recycling them yet, because they can last up to a few years at a time!
