The Air you Breathe

You breathe.

It is completely irrelevant if you wish you could lose 10 pounds, if you have a pimple on your nose, if you think you are too tall or too short, or if your hair sticks up in weird places after you take off your hat – you breathe. This is one thing that unites us.

Common Myth #1: Green Cleaning means I have to work harder and use more time.

Not true at all. Actually, you will spend the same amount of time, if not less, when you use green and non-toxin cleaners.
