I don’t know about you, but when I hear ‘go green’ or ‘eco-friendly’ I think of a globally-sized issue and feel somewhat helpless in the fight to make a change. I think, “I’m only one person, will what I do really make a difference?” and what I’m quickly finding is yes, it actually will! Doing my part can in fact make a difference. So what does eco-friendly really mean? Simply put, eco friendly literally means friendly to the earth or simply not harmful to the environment. This refers to products and practices that help in conserving resources like water and energy as well as preventing air, water and land pollution. Ready to get in there and do your part? Here are 6 habits of environmentally conscious people that you’re probably already doing!

I was pleasantly surprised when I realized that I can love my space while still on a budget. Are you skeptical? Find out how I created the bedroom of my dreams!
Single friends, I am sure you hate this as much as I do. We all have asked the question, hoping for an original, heart-enlightening response; They respond with, "Well, when you know, you know."
