Green Tip #119: Reusing Cloth

I recently had to finally give in and admit that this once well made tea towel really was no longer useful to dry dishes on account of the holes and threads. However instead of throwing it out, I gave it to Sustainable PF who will use it in the basement to clean up all sorts of dirty messes. I always chuckle to myself when I see rags for sale in a store, why spend money on that when old tea towels and t-shirts and even holey (but clean!) underwear are just as good but don’t cost a thing?!

Green Tip #118: Use Plants For Clean Air

Just over the weekend we put our first plant in our sun room. I grew up with lots of plants in the house, especially in our bay window. However I did not grow up with cats, who tend to like to eat plants! So Sustainable PF installed a hook and that is where the beautiful plant I received for my birthday this year now hangs. The cats stare at it but I really don’t think there is any way they can get at it! House plants are a great, inexpensive and green way to purify the air in your home, especially in one as air tight as ours. In the summer, you can out them outside, but its so nice to have that touch of green and maybe even some winter blooms in the cold months.
