Electronics has a big impact on both human health and the environment. Between large volumes of waste, hazardous chemical use, and the overuse of natural resources, electronic manufacturing can be a very environmentally unfriendly business. @Greenpeace’s ‘Guide to Greener Electronics 2017’ (🔗 in bio) breaks down why this process can be so toxic and how major tech companies stack up. You may be surprised by the results! ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #becausehealth #nontoxic #nontoxicliving #environment #environmental #greenpeace #greenliving #lifecycle⁣ #natural #business⁣
Here are our two favorite DIY options in a 16oz spray bottle. The first is pretty much just vinegar and water. It's super effective and if the vinegar smell bugs you (we swear it goes away as soon as it dries), just add a drop or two of your favorite essential oil. We love peppermint! Or you can soak the vinegar with some lemon peels for a week or two and get that amazing clean citrus scent. Ahhh...🍋 We also keep a bottle of the liquid soap cleaner on hand for marble counters (no vinegar on sensitive surfaces) and to spot clean small couch and rug stains. Pssst! We've heard that some kombucha bottles and apple cider vinegar bottles will fit an old spray top, so look around your kitchen for some free supplies!
