We reviewed a few Earth-friendly products that aim to freshen up your space and make spring cleaning a little more enjoyable.

He said:  This spray-and-mop stuff smelled delicious! Like a ginger tropical fruit punch. If I didn’t know better, I would have tried to drink it. It was super easy to apply, cut through the floor gunk well, and dried quickly. But $6 for 25 ounces is a bit steep, so steer clear if you’ve got a lot of floor to mop.

He gave it: ★★★

She said:  Whoever designed this bottle is one sneaky genie. It’s fun to hold, and once it’s in my hand I really can’t find an excuse not to mop the floor. The nozzle sprayed just enough cleaner, which smelled very fresh and clean, and with a quick scrub from a stick mop, I was done. The solution cleaned great and left no residue.

IMG_20141213_100551bStakeholder management is a central element of any sustainability strategy. Increasingly, business leaders around the world are recognizing the importance of integrating stakeholder issues, concerns and requirements into their operations.

Stakeholders, defined as any party that has an interest or “stake” in the company’s operations, are important for several reasons. When managers develop a strategy that defines how the business is making each stakeholder better off, they find that varied stakeholder interests tend to converge with the interests of their company. Also, a stakeholder perspective is based on an ecological worldview. Managers adopting this worldview recognize that the flow of information and resources, positive relationships and shared value among diverse stakeholders determine the company’s social legitimacy and its ability to sustain its operations over time.

bathroom-2193-editWater is a precious resource, especially in our desert climate. Do your part and help conserve water usage in and around your home with these five tips; from simply fixing water leaks to installing a greywater recycling system, there’s something for every budget and lifestyle.

1. Find and fix water leaks both inside and outside of your home. The most common places for water leakages to occur are in your washing machine, sinks, toilets, water heaters and sump pumps.

2. Reuse contaminant-free rainwater and household water from dishwashing, laundry, sink and shower usage by installing a greywater recycling system. While this water may not look clean due to traces of dirt, food, grease and other household waste, it is actually a safe and efficient way to irrigate your yard.

3. Purchase water-efficient appliances when it’s time to upgrade. As a consumer, you can make it your responsibility to educate yourself on the most efficient water-related products, such as those with the WaterSense label designed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Dumping old water bottles or leftover kettle water? Instead of pouring this water down the drain, use it to water your non-edible plants, lawn or vegetable garden.

5. Start using a compost pile. Kitchen sink disposals use a large amount of water in order to function properly. To cut down on this water usage, dispose of food waste through a compost piling system. The process is simple and offers the rewards of a healthy harvest and garden.
