SWRC Tip - Cleaning
Avoid single use disposable mop pad and paper towels; use washable mop pads and cleaning cloths.
SWRC Tip - Construction
Use wood from environmentally certified forests (such as FSC), and fast-renewable materials such as bamboo and straw. Use reclaimed materials like stone. And always think non-toxic, local, reusable, and recyclable.
SWRC Tip - Food
Twenty percent of the food we buy ends up being thrown away. Keep track of what you've got on hand so that you use groceries while they're still fresh.
