How to Dispose of Toxic Products Safely!

You and your family have decided to "go green" and use Brightly Green cleaning products..good for you!  You know they work and you know they are sustainable and affordable.  So...it's time to replace those toxic products in your cleaning basket!

When replacing your cleaning products, don't just throw the old ones in the trash.  They are too toxic for your home; they are also too toxic for the environment.  Many communities hold toxics and electronics recycling days and will take all of these off your hands.  If not start one yourself.  It would be best to plan how to eliminate chemical products before you throw them in your garbage or pour them down the drain.  They just might end up back in your water supply.

Check out this downloadable pamphlet from the EPA.

I think a comment is coming!  I hope it's YOURS!

Make Housework Easy

Make housework easy

I’m Rachel Papworth, the founder of Green and Tidy. I help people who have WAY too much stuff, to declutter and create homes they love, homes that support them to live the lives they want to live.

When your home works, your life works. Without you even noticing it, a home that works efficiently and is set up to support you to do the stuff you love, enables you to live the life you want to live.

Participants in my programme, Clear the Clutter, Stay Clutter-Free and Live the Life You Want, can look forward to the following benefits from decluttering and organising their homes:

1.      Saving time.
2.      Saving money.
3.      Getting rid of mental and emotional clutter.
4.      A simpler life.
5.      Better physical health.
6.      Reducing their environmental impact.

This is because, in a decluttered and organised home:


-          You can lay your hands on anything you need quickly and easily.

-          You’ve cleared out mental and emotional clutter as you’ve let go of the physical objects associated with it.

-          You’ve got less stuff to manage.


-          You’re spending less time and money on shopping, and having a lower impact on the environment because:

§  You no longer buy stuff to replace things you can’t find

§  You no longer buy stuff to replace things you’ve forgotten you’ve got

§  You no longer buy stuff to replace things that got knocked them off a pile of clutter and broken

§  You no longer buy stuff to replace things that got damaged under a pile of clutter

§  You’ve learned to bring into your home only what you truly want or need.

-          You can protect your health by keeping your home clean.

-          You’re more likely to use cleaning products that have a lower environmental impact because instead of blitzing occasionally with harsh products, you can quickly and easily clean on a regular basis.

It all adds up to peace of mind.

Rose was despondent and low about the state of her flat. She couldn’t face the overwhelming task of decluttering and she was afraid that her home would never be the way she wanted it to be.

Through my training and coaching her, she came to see that it would be possible for her to have “the flat I’ve always dreamed of”. As she cleared her clutter, she noticed for the first time in ages the massive dust-bunnies that had built up on the floor and the layer of dust on the skirting boards. She was shocked to think how that dust and dirt had been affecting the health of her and her ten-year-old son.

It’s not surprising dirt had built up. Cleaning around a clutter mountain is so time-consuming as to be nearly impossible. Moving all that stuff out of the way to dust, polish, wipe and vacuum (never mind dusting each of the objects in the pile) would have taken forever. And her clutter mountains were so precariously piled that she’d have risked knocking precious objects off and damaging them.

Her son’s verdict when she’d finished? “Clean!” he announced with a big grin.

Isn’t it fantastic what a difference decluttering and organising can make?

Lincoln Heights Students Research ways to "Go Green"!

Mrs. Kelly Carter’s, 9th grade class at Lincoln Heights High School participated in a school research project “go green”. The following students: Katrina L., Bobby M., David P., Alicia G., and Daniel S., came up with several resources that they wanted to share with us.

Mrs. Kelly Carter, science and biology teacher at Lincoln Heights High School,found my page http://www.brightlygreen.biz/brightlygreenliving/ecoresources.html  while researching for their current research project on ways to "go green." She wrote me that her students have been doing a good job in finding adequate information but they still have a ways to go in finding more reliable information.

She said, “Some of my students found other links during their research that if I may suggest, would be a perfect addition to this page and your site. I continued my bonus program from earlier this year for my summer classes to take advantage of. I wanted them to take a little extra time in doing research and bringing all of their findings to me for bonus points. In this situation if they find other resources that will make a site I have approved more resourceful, they receive added bonus points.”

Here are the sites that some of the students found:





Brightly Green and HG Laboratories, LLC wants to thank Mrs. Carter and her students for the wonderful resources they have shared with us!  We have added these to the Brightly Green Page Brightly Green Living Eco Resources. 

We are proud to be a part of this project! If you have a group or class that would like to submit information to us we would be happy to review it!

Please make my day; leave me a comment!

Sole Searching

Tips from HG Labs "Green Cleaning eBook"...soon to be available (Free).  Sign up for the first release!

Imagine living at floor level where pets and small children spend much of their time. Who knows what is on your shoes at the end of the day. Shoes can bring in oil, fertilizer, animal waste, pollution, pollen and who knows what else into your home.

Keep the outside out of your home with a doormat or a shoeless house policy.  Many green buildings now include entryway track-off systems as a means of maintaining healthy interior environments.

Less dirt means less sweeping, mopping and vacuuming; this reduces work, water, energy and chemical use.

Less Is More

Tips from HG Labs “Green Cleaning eBook”…soon to be available (Free). Sign up for the first release!

Houses and buildings with less clutter are cleaner and healthier and require fewer chemicals (natural or toxic) to maintain them. This can mean less is more…more time for the things you really want to do. This can also be a big money $saver as cleaning costs can often add up to as much as half of a building’s total maintenance cost, especially in larger buildings.
