10 Simple Ways to Make Your Home Green

Nov 4, 2013

ToiletPaperWorld Blog reader submission: 10 Simple Ways to Make Your Home Green (via WhiteFenceSavings)

Green Living

1) Install a Water Filter – Making sure that you and your family stays hydrated is of great importance, but there are better ways to accomplish the goal than buying disposable plastic bottles full of water. Invest in reusable water bottles for every member of the family, and spring for a water filter. You’ll keep that plastic out of rotation, and you’ll be teaching your kids a valuable lesson about stewardship.

2) Chuck the Plastic Bags – There’s no doubt that it’s easier to snag the plastic bags at the grocery store, but it’s not all that difficult to opt instead for reusable shopping bags to carry your goods back home. Instead of collecting mounds of bags that will only be thrown away, look for a few sturdy, reusable canvas or cloth shopping bags to do the same job in a much greener way.

3) Opt Out of Junk Mail – You probably won’t be able to stop the endless flood of marketing fliers that come to your mailbox, but you can make a dent in your waste-of-paper junk mail by opting out of pre-approved credit offers. look for ways to put an end to the junk mail you receive, and you’ll be doing a simple thing that has a big overall impact on the planet.

4) Donate, Don’t Dump – Kids grow out of clothes, and they fall out of style. Instead of dumping old clothes, turn those that aren’t serviceable into cloth rags for cleaning and donate the rest to a local charity. You’ll be clearing your home of clutter and doing something good for both the environment and your community.

5) Stop Buying Cleaning Products – Chemical cleaning products are not only expensive, they can also wreak havoc wit allergies, skin sensitives and asthma. They can also be manufactured under conditions that are less than healthy for the environment. Instead, find recipes you like for simple, effective homemade cleaning products. Allergy and asthma sufferers will be happier, and so will the earth.

6) Consider Cloth Diapers – The idea of dealing with a messy cloth diaper can be off-putting at first blush, to say the least. What many people don’t realize is that clothies have come a long way since they last enjoyed widespread use. Even if you only use one cloth diaper a day to supplement disposable nappy use, you’ll keep three hundred and sixty-five diapers out of a landfill over the course of a single year.

7) Skip the Paper Towels – Tearing a paper towel off the role is convenient, but it’s also wasteful. Consider moving towards those cloth rags re-purposed from old clothing and towels, and you’ll be putting an end to single-use paper products that cost money and only end up in the trash.

8) Leave Your Shoes at the Door – There’s more to keeping a green home than reducing your impact on the land; it’s also about keeping your family healthy and happy. That’s why ditching your shoes at the door is so important. Instead of tracking pesticides, chemicals and other yucky contaminants in on the soles of your shoes, you’re leaving them out of your home altogether.

9) Keep Plastic Out of the Microwave – When a piece of plastic ware says that it’s “microwave safe” all that means is that it’s capable of withstanding high temperatures without turning to molten liquid. It may still contain dangerous chemicals and substances, which is decidedly not green. One of the quickest and easiest changes you can make towards achieving a greener home is to simply bypass the plastic bowl in favor of a glass or ceramic one on your way to the microwave.

10) Landscape Carefully – When you plot out your next landscaping project, take a moment to consider your local climate. Sourcing native plants and placing them properly will ensure that they’re able to thrive with minimal intervention, which means no chemical fertilizers, no pesticides and no need to waster water by pouring it into the ground in order to sustain a plant that isn’t able to naturally survive in your area.

Healthy Habits – Flu Control Prevention Products & Supplies

Oct 14, 2013

Healthy Habits Flu Control Supplies AdAccording to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) this year, 2013-2014, is going to be an active flu season. To help stop the spread of germs and prevent respiratory illnesses like the flu, the CDC recommends the following “Healthy Habits“:

1. Avoid close contact: Avoid close contact with people who are sick, or are showing signs of being sick. When you’re sick, keep your distance from other who are healthy to help prevent them from getting sick too.

2. Stay home when you are sick: Talk to your employer before you get sick. Check to see what your company policies are on “Sick Stay”. If possible, stay home when you’re sick. Don’t go out to work, school, or to run errands when you have the flu. By staying home, and away from people, you can help prevent others from catching your illness.

3. Cover your mouth and nose: Be sure to cover your mouth when you cough, and your nose when you sneeze. Simple actions can really help to stop the spread of germs and illnesses.

4. Wash your hands: Cleaning your hands will help protect you, and others, from germs. Tip: Hum the “Happy Birthday” song while washing your hands, that should be enough time. If soap and running water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub or sanitizer.

5. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth: Germ causing illnesses are often spread from person to person when you touch something that is contaminated and then touch your eyes, nose or mouth. Be sure to wipe down shared office equipment, such as phones, keyboards, etc.

6. Practice other good health habits: Clean, wash, and disinfect any and all frequently touched surfaces in your home, at work or school; especially when someone is sick. In addition, be sure to get plenty of sleep, drink lots of fluids, manage your stress, and eat healthy.

Back by popular demand – Where did all the colored toilet paper go?

Sep 19, 2013

RIP Pink Toilet Paper, Cherished Friend, Companion, and Always There When You Needed It Most; 1950-?

RIP Pink Toilet Paper, Cherished Friend, Companion, and Always There When You Needed It Most; 1950-?

We’re bringing this one back from the archives… Originally posted Jul 16, 2009 – “Where did all the colored toilet paper go?”

Think about it for a second – When was the last time you reached for some TP and saw anything but the standard white roll?  Probably around the same time tie dyed t-shirts and Birkenstocks were still in style, right?

30 years ago colored toilet paper wasn’t the rarity it is today.  Introduced in the 50’s and popular throughout the 70’s, many manufacturers produced a variety of colors including pink, blue, yellow, lilac, tan, and black.  Homeowners loved matching the color of their toilet paper to the color of their bathrooms (it was the 70’s after all!).  So besides the obvious reason that what was hip in the 70’s isn’t anymore, where did all the colored TP go?

According to the King of Toilet Paper, two major events occurred which  hurt sales and thus led to the downfall of the colored toilet paper reign:
–    Doctors started warning colored toilet paper could lead to skin irritation.  As pretty as we once thought it looked, no one wants to deal with that!
–    Ecologists also began warning the dye in the colored toilet paper rolls was harmful to the environment.

With an increased cost of production (it costs more to produce colored than white toilet paper) and a decrease in sales, manufacturers began to produce less and less.  Up until 5 years ago (now 9), Scott was one of the last remaining manufactures to still produce our old friend in beige, blue, and pink.  However, they have since cut production all together.

RIP Colored Toilet Paper – From the bottoms of our bottoms, we thank you for the service you have provided us over the years.  We’ll miss you.
