Cleaning our Water

Cleaning our water is absolutely essential and we need to work on a personal, community, national and global level to stop making the problem worse and start making it better!

We can start in our homes by using vinegar and baking soda over harsh chemicals when cleaning.  Read your labels.  You will not only protect our water and land, but you also won’t be exposing your body to the chemicals as well.  There are so many great alternatives out there for cleaning our homes and businesses.  Check out some tips to find inspiration for running your home on a greener basis. See our other Pinterest page on water for one more reality check on what we are doing to the waters of the world. Also, Managing Earth’s Facebook page has dozens of posts highlighting the incredible challenges and innovative solutions to solve the problem of cleaning our water. Check them out and get inspired!
