Create a Happy Healthy Home the Maximum Living Way

Creating a green and healthy environment for you and your family starts in your home. From healthy drinking water to non toxic cleaners, just a few simple steps and easy education can get you on the road to a healthy and happy home in no time.

Did you know you can actually buy plants at your local nursery that will clean the air in your home? That's right, and these plants live in both high and low light conditions. Here is a list:

Aloe Vera, Aglaonema Aglaonema species, Arrowhead Vine Syngonium species,
Bamboo Palm Chamaedorea erumpens, Chrysanthemum, Dracaena, English Ivy,
Peace Lily Schefflera or Umbrella Tree, Snake Plant Sansevieria, Spider Plant Chlorophytum comosum.

Also, many people don't realize that many of the cleaners we use in our homes carry a warning from the EPA. They can cause everything from skin irritation to asthma, besides the fact that they are toxic to our environment. So what should you look for when buying a product? My suggestion is to find a product that is organic, biodegradable, and all natural. Yes it may be hard to find, but the products I have found and use in my everyday work comes from Shakle* and you can find more information about them on

Another way to help our environment is to buy products that are concentrated. This helps us to buy less and get more while at the same time keeping less manufactured plastics and bottles out of our landfills.

Most people think that just by themselves they really can't make a difference in this world, but you actually can. Buy just starting with yourself and what you use to keep your home clean will actually start a movement and awareness among your circle of influence that actually can grow and change the world.

Keep healthy and start on your path to a happy healthy home today!
Remember...YOU CAN DO IT!
