Making sacrifices becomes part of the green movement also. Perhaps the gas I save avoiding the drive thru gives me the option to go out of my way to do other things.
I am currently upcycling some drapes into a sofa slipcover. My client found them in the driveway of one of her neighbors. The neighbor's garage sale was over and the drapes (which ended up being free) sat on the driveway for a couple days. She was happy to make them go away and my client was thrilled to gain about 18 yards of great fabric. They were dusty and laying out for a couple days, what to do?
Brainstorming about how to clean them was exhausting, until she found Courtney. Owner and operator of Grass Roots Eco Cleaner, an eco friendly dry cleaners. If you are spending a great deal of money to have something cleaned (it is a little higher in cost), why not go as eco friendly as possible. I wanted to share this idea with you so you can think of it as an option.
McKinney has a dry cleaner on every corner, but one needs to think about the chemicals being brought into your home and what you are carrying around on your body.
Staying in this vein of friendliness, I found this soap “hand in hand” made from eco-friendly, organic ingredients. For every bar bought, one is donated – the last batch was donated to Haiti. This soap can be purchased on-line or at Anthorpologie.
