Do you ever hear people stating that they want to be more organic but end up buying the worst chemical contained products? Instead of trying to buy your way into organics why not start at home. A couple of ideas that could be used for going green at home.
1. For general all purpose cleaner check out www.thegreenguide.com and the listing for a general purpose cleaner.
1/2 cup borax
1 gallon hot water
It also includes metal and wood polish. Who thought Olive Oil and White Vinegar could do so much.
2. Gardening. Growing up I remember that nearly all of families in the neighborhood had a garden. It wasn't until about twenty years ago when the trend moved away from home based production to cute packaged foods. Carrots don't even look like carrots in real form now.
If you don't have a space to plant a full fledged garden, how about just some herbs on a window sill. You've seen how expensive herbs cost in the store and you usually only need a few sprigs of rosemary or a couple leaves of Basil.

3. Support the local farmer's market. Generally all of the vendors originate within a 200 mile radius. There is some exceptions with the larger city markets but the cost of transportation would outweigh the benefit exceeding the general area.
