Choose Good Household Goods

During Earth Month, and really every month for that matter, it’s all about reduce, reuse, recycle! While I am totally behind figuring out how to reduce waste by going reusable (I recently found a super-cute, washable fabric wrap for my kiddo’s sandwiches) there are times when I just need to use something that’s disposable. Um, a trash bag comes to mind. So, when that’s the case, I prefer to look for items that a) are made from recycled content, b) do not whiten with chlorine bleach, c) use conscientious packaging or d) work well. It’s even better when I find a product that has more than one of these features and is competitively priced. That’s why this line-up of household products from our exclusive 365 Everyday Value® and Green Mission™ brands is really good news. I get lots of choices that meet many of my criteria but won’t break my budget.
