Spring Eco-Boost With Terra Wellington

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 19, 2013) - Wellness and Lifestyle Contributor Terra Wellington shares her eco-friendly ideas for observing Earth Day this year:

It's all about making simple, green choices like choosing products that use less plastic or paper. For example, concentrated cleaners, which require less packaging, help reduce landfill waste and can save space in your home! SC Johnson has a line of Mini concentrated refills which are available in the company's five most trusted brands, including Windex® and Scrubbing Bubbles®. These Mini refills come in small, easy-to-pour bottles made of recyclable plastic. Just fill a clean spray bottle with water, add the concentrate and you're ready to clean!

Another great way to go green is by saving energy and water with your laundry. Wash in cold water to save energy and opt for front loading washers which save on water. LG's Mega-Capacity TurboWash Washer, for instance, has been given the ENERGY STAR "Most Efficient" designation and features ColdWash technology which can save you up to 60% on energy use. The TurboWash technology saves 20 minutes of time per family size load and the mega-capacity saves you on number of overall loads; it can handle a king-size comforter and sheets all in one!

Being mindful of the foods you eat is another way to do something good for the environment and your family at the same time. Look for the Non-GMO Project designation on labels. It's found on products like Silk's line of plant-based beverages, meaning that all of Silk's beverages are made with non-GMO ingredients. They also contain no artificial colors, flavors or high fructose corn syrup.

This release is provided by for whom Terra Wellington is a spokesperson on behalf of the organizations referred.
