DIY Home Garden


Greener Home and Lifestyle

Are you concerned about preserving the natural beauty of the environment? You can do your part by creating a greener home and lifestyle.

We address small steps that you can take to help save our natural resources.

Some of the greener home and lifestyle tips you’ll find on DIY Home & Garden:

Greener building materials

From using reclaimed shingles to efficient windows to finding alternate construction materials, we have suggestions that can reduce your carbon footprint.

Also, we have industry experts share advice on how to accomplish these goals.

Gardening and clean eating

Your gardening efforts have a two-fold impact on helping to make a cleaner world.

First, you reduce your carbon footprint by growing your own fruits, vegetables, and herbs. So garden-to-table eating means you are not “trucking in” your nutrition.

Second, growing plants helps to offset carbon emissions and provides a habitat for important pollinator species, such as bees and butterflies.

Cleaner household products and cleansers

We advise you on how to cut down on the use of cleaning chemicals that add toxins to our streams, rivers, lakes, and oceans.

By swapping out chemicals for vinegar, baking soda, and essential oils, you do help to make a difference.

As a result, cleaner waterways help make flourishing fish and edible aquatic plant species that nourish our bodies.

Upcycling projects

This topic is my personal favorite! Reduce trash in the landfill by reimagining old things to create all-new treasures.  We share upcycling tips and inspiration to give you a start.
