We also present room-by-place ideas on how to decrease your environmental footprint, from a gentler laundry regime to how to rid your kitchen area of plastic.
And there’s more—including 75 of our most loved vintage home items (all easy to resource) a global compendium of means a guidebook to how to responsibly get rid of undesirable items and, of class, transforming guidance of all types, whether or not you are on the lookout to supply nontoxic paint, enhance your windows, or replace an inefficient water heater.
