From homemade cleaning products, to cloth diapers, to organic milk, I have made a lot of green choices for my household. Some are very easy to do, but others, like keeping up with which plastics are food safe and which are recyclable, can be tricky and hard to remember.
This week I picked up a copy of the first issue of The Green Guide magazine, from National Geographic, and it just may be the handiest green resource I've seen. It covers topics like how to get better gas mileage, how to minimize hazardous waste in your garage, and why our household air can get so polluted. Handiest of all is a tear-out cheat sheet to keep in your purse or planner listing which plastics are safe for food, recyclable, or neither. Each issue will feature a similar-themed tear-out card.
Best of all, this is from National Geographic, so I can trust that each article is thoroughly researched and that the science is proven. (Because we no longer trust any old magazine, ever since the "drink 8 glasses of water per day" myth was busted!)
The Green Guide will also publish each issue IN FULL electronically, if you want to stop by their website, thegreenguide.com.
