You just cooked fish for dinner, your gym shoes could use a wash, and the dog needs a bath — is it time to spray a commercial air freshener? Air fresheners do not freshen the air, they pollute it! An easy and healthy eco-friendly solution for this product is essential oils. They are extracted from flowers, seeds, fruits, and bark. They have natural anti-bacterial properties, and they also promote mental well-being. Add four drops of your favorite oil, such as neroli and frankincense, to a spray bottle, add water, and use instead of a commercial air freshener.
Non environmentally friendly products are used everyday, and even the greenest may not be aware of one or two of these convenient, polluting, everyday items. They are readily-available, commercial, and we are used to them. Also, few people are aware of the negative impact that certain products may have. Go ahead — take a look at your daily habits and see if you can live a little greener.
