Affordable Accessible Green Products

The stainless steel water bottles featured in this photo, were found at CVS for......$3 bucks!

I am finding that eco-friendly and safer products are becoming more mainstream. A common complaint from African Americans has been that these greener and safer products are out of reach financially and geographically. I have noticed over the course of the last year that green goods can now be found at your local drugstore, Wal-Mart, your grocer and even your local discount retailer. This is why it is so important to shop your values, even if you have to cut back elsewhere. At some point the retailers will respond and your preferred products will be more affordable and accessible over time. You have the power to change the world, one dollar at a time - make it rain.

This covers all the bases = saves you money, helps the environment, helps your health, makes you feel better, it's so easy to do and it costs less than $50.00; Save money and the Earth and be clean at the same time! Add Bathroom Bidet Sprayers to all your bathrooms. I think Dr. Oz on Oprah said it best: "if you had pee or poop on your hand, you wouldn't wipe it off with paper, would you? You'd wash it off” Available at with these you won't even need toilet paper any more, just a towel to dry off! Don’t worry, you can still leave some out for guests and can even make it the soft stuff without felling guilty. It's cheap and can be installed without a plumber; and runs off the same water line to your toilet. You'll probably pay for it in a few months of toilet paper savings. And after using one of these you won't know how you lasted all those years with wadded up handfuls of toilet paper. As for water use a drought is always a concern and must be dealt far exceed the water use of household users and in the case of toilet paper manufacture it is huge. The pollution and significant power use from that manufacturing process also contributes to global warming so switching to a hand bidet sprayer and lowering your toilet paper use is very green in multiple ways.
