Thank you to our speakers who offered ideas on Upcycling and Green Cleaning.

*Simply put, its using products that are safe and healthy for you and the environment.
*It is safer for you and your family and might clear up any health problems you might not even be aware of.
*Beware of supermarket products labeled “green” or “natural.” Remember they don’t have to label all ingredients. Keep it simple and try making your own cleaning supplies.
