Sustainable Earth

Protect What We Have

Let's get started! First, if you are new to the whole concept of living green, you might be wondering exactly what it is and why you should care about it.

What is Green Living?

Since the whole concept of green is still relatively new, you probably won't find any definition for this kind of green in a dictionary. However, we believe that "green" basically covers any action that seeks to protect the environment either by lowering consumption, by reducing or eliminating waste, or by using products that do not cause harm to the environment. We'll go into lots more detail throughout the site.

Why should I care?

There are lots of good reasons to care about green living. First, anything you can do to help protect the environment, no matter how small, is a step in the right direction. And, being green is good for you. Yes, YOU! Here's how:

Living green often saves green (yes, the kind you like to spend)
There are lots of health advantages associated with taking steps towards a greener lifestyle.
We'll continue to work hard in order to provide you with lots of high-quality and well researched information about green living.

Green Living In The Home

Most people are interested in becoming more eco friendly at home and that's important. Because a majority of your time is spent at home, any changes you implement there have a direct effect on your quality of life, through things like increased health and saved money. Beyond that, having a green home will affect the world around you in a positive way.

If you are looking for a place to start green living, check out our pages on having a Green Kitchen. Since so much of a home's energy is used in the kitchen and almost all of our homes waste is generated in the kitchen, it makes sense to see what changes can be made in this important room before moving on to other areas of the home.

Green Living Made Easy also has sections dedicated to every other area of the home. If you'd like to make some changes in the bedroom, visit the Green Bedroom section of the site. Are you wondering which washing machine is the most energy efficient or what laundry detergent is the most eco friendly? Check out the Green Laundry section for lots of great information that will help you out in the laundry room.

Since our bathrooms consume at least 60% of our water, and a great deal of that is heated, find out how to conserve in the Bathroom visiting the Green Bathroom section of the site.

Don't think you can't bring green concepts into the garage either. Wev'e got it covered in our Green Garage section.
