The burning wood emits environmentally safe carbon dioxide, which is equal to the oxygen the  plant produce and converts to oxygen, so it doesn’t really leave any carbon foot prints. To install a log burner in our home, you need a place where you can set it up with a chimney attached to it.

House cleaning products

Even though they make our house grime free and sparkling clean, they release harmful compounds and solvents into the atmosphere whenever they are used, and therefore, they are not good for your health. A normal household use a wide variety of product containing harmful toxic chemicals, such as furniture cleaners and polishes, air fresheners, glass andeco-friendly cleaning tile cleaners, toilet cleaners, detergent, dishwashers, carpet cleaners, soap and the list goes on and on. The green thing to do for our house is to switch form products that contain harmful chemicals such as Phthalates, Perchloroethylene/PERC, Ammonia, Chlorine, and any other products that state “Warning Danger Caution, or Poison ” on them to products that contain natural ingredients such as Baking soda, Beeswax, Vinegar, Olive Oil, and products labeled “no phosphates or solvents.” There are a number of cleaning products available in the market today labeled eco-friendly.
