Natural Home Living: Everything You Need To Know About Going Green

Tags: green products, toxins

Natural Home magazine has been helping regular people live healthy, sustainable lifestyles for 10 years now. So when you read that the cleaners you use may contain toxic ingredients or the government’s stimulus bill shells out cash for weatherizing, we have something to say about it. We know you do, too. 

The eve of our tenth anniversary is high time to up the ante on our frequency. Green has grown as big as we imagined it would, back in 1999, but that’s also made it tough to sort fact from fiction, whether you’re looking for the most sustainable flooring or just trying to read an Energy Star label. How do you know you’re buying green? Can you keep your home toxin-free? Can green living really save money? 

Green Money
We have answers, and we’re excited to share them—much more often. With this blog, we’ll deliver news, tips (old and new) and green product reviews three times a week. We’ll show you that green doesn’t have to be expensive or overwhelming if you have the information you need to make thoughtful choices. We’ll help you save money by saving water and energy, eat healthy even as food costs rise and turn garbage into cute household projects.  We’ll take you along when we go to Green Festivals and Greenbuild, and we’ll share what we’re working on. 

We hope you’ll talk back. We want to know how you’re incorporating wellness and consciousness into your lives and homes, what excites you, what worries you. We want to hear about how you’re making a difference in the place that we think matters most: your home. 

Buddhist master Chogyam Trungpa, Rinpoche, the founder of Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado, pointed out that “The only way to implement our vision for society is to bring it down to the situation of a single household.”

Our vision is long and optimistic. Together with you, we look forward to making it happen, one home at a a time.
