Your Guide to Spring- Greening 3 Eco-Friendly Home Swaps to Make When You Declutter

It takes a special kind of person to enjoy spring-cleaning. For most of us, the satisfaction of a clean house doesn’t quite outweigh the hours of scrubbing, sorting, and slogging through heaps of unnecessary stuff. If you’re struggling to find the motivation to start your spring-cleaning, try flipping the paradigm: Instead of spring-cleaning, think of what you’re doing as spring- greening , and make some eco-friendly swaps along the way. Here are a few ideas to get you started. According to a Statista report, in 2019, the household cleaners market was worth more than $31 billion, and it’s continuously growing. You can save money on cleaning supplies by taking the green route. When your current stock runs out, try buying bulk cleaners or making your own. Both options will save plastic because you can reuse your bottles, and they can help you avoid the harmful chemicals found in most cleaners. Visit and read the blog post “Zero Waste Cleaning Supplies + Recipes” to get started. 2. EXPLORE ALTERNATIVE LAUNDRY DETERGENTS. If you’re used to using a plastic jug of liquid laundry detergent, it’s time to step out of your comfort zone. This spring, try exploring greener alternatives like plant-based bulk 1. SWAP YOUR PLASTIC SPRAY BOTTLES FOR BULK OR DIY CLEANING PRODUCTS.

laundry powder (Molly’s Suds is an excellent source). Or, if you’re feeling really adventurous, you can even try adding all-natural cleaners like soap nuts or English ivy to your laundry loads. For more on the former, search “soap nuts” on, and read up on ivy detergent at 3. SAY GOODBYE TO PAPER TOWELS. Paper towels are a mainstay in American homes, but do we really need them when a good old-fashioned rag can do the job? According to the Ocean Conservancy, 13 billion pounds of paper towels are tossed in the U.S. each year! This spring, quit paper towels and keep a stash of dish rags under the sink to do your dirty work. When you’re cleaning out your closet, you can even cut up old T-shirts and add them to your rag stash! If you’re brave, try giving up tissues, too — an old-school hanky does the trick. If you’ve made all three of these swaps, don’t stop there! To continue your green journey, visit any of the blogs mentioned above and start browsing.

Change Your Life With Better Water

How The Source H2O’s Water System Affects Your Habits

For many in our country, water is taken for granted. That’s why having a cleaner water source is such an incredible experience. When you start seeing the differences trickle down into every aspect of your life, you start to realize just how important the quality of your water really is. Just like solar energy, here at The Source H2O, we believe that cleaner water is a part of everyone’s future.

Cleaning isn’t the only thing that requires water. Everyone needs to hydrate, but many have to buy water bottles to avoid drinking from the tap. You don’t need to feel the guilt of buying water bottles; we know how hard it is to remember to recycle them. And you don’t need to buy new coffee grounds every month either! You can use less because clean water adheres better to the flavors. The actual amount of grounds you need will vary depending on the coffee, but try halving the amount you usually use to start off with. You can also spend less on lotion too. Clean water dissolves into your skin much easier, and many people with eczema who use our water have reported clearing up significantly after making the switch. Here’s another benefit that surprises people: Draining your water heater every six months is important for the cleanliness of many water systems, but not ours. Using our system, you won’t have to worry about that either. By installing our systems, you save money regularly, have better-hydrated skin, and enjoy all of the health benefits of better water. Welcome to the Clean Water family!

So, how much will better water affect your life and future? What kind of habits will you need to adjust?

Clean water is actually an excellent solvent for cleaning any surface in your household. Regular tap water has a density and contamination that makes soap work harder than it needs to. But with our unique, company-engineered water systems, you won’t need to use as much soap for anything, including dishes, counters, stainless steel, floors, windows, laundry, etc. Let’s face it: The market wants you to buy a different kind of soap for each of these. But now, you won’t need to. With your new water system, we recommend using only half a tablespoon of dishwashing soap , and a teaspoon for laundry detergent .

Water You Up To? How to Talk About Water Quality to Loved Ones

We say we’re “water snobs.” It’s all true and in good fun, but it’s not without real concern for the future. We want people to know we’re serious, and when you explain your choice to install our water systems to others, we know you do too.

then more people would find out the truth. That’s why we give a free water analysis to anyone who asks. We don’t think that anyone should have to blindly wonder what they’re drinking.

When you’re bringing up the conversation of water quality to friends and family, don’t hesitate to mention these issues and available resources.

Gyms, hospitals, spas, and even the Army are installing our systems to combat these risks. The future includes better water for everyone. The easiest way to help your friends

In the past decade, Americans have heard a lot about water. There are the infamous lead leaks into Flint and Newark’s water, which brought about awareness of the dangers of lead pipes. And, more recently in mid-2019, dozens of public water systems across the U.S. were exposed to dangerous levels of perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances, which are linked to cancer, thyroid disease, and many more

problems. These aren’t normal substances, yet for decades, these systems went without thorough tests to catch them. And, if you were wondering, there are still thousands of cities and homes across the U.S. that use lead pipes, despite public crises and warnings.

and family is to email their names and phone numbers to SHARE@THESOURCEH2O.COM and our friendly office staff will reach out to them.

The problem for millions of Americans is that, for better or for worse, most just don’t think about their water. If more people considered public water quality more often,

This Workout ROCKS! 3 Reasons to Start Rock Climbing IT IMPROVES YOUR SHOULDERS AND YOUR MIND! Physical strength alone won’t get you to the top of a wall. Rock climbing is a physical and mental challenge. Some problems call for fancy footwork, creative problem- solving, or going for a rock that seems out of reach. Teaching your mind and your body to work together while rock climbing can also build endurance and reduce stress. IT STRENGTHENS YOUR RELATIONSHIPS. Rock climbing, especially top rope climbing, is one of the best workouts to do with a partner. Top roping is a type of climbing where you strap into a harness, tie yourself to a rope, and climb up a wall while your partner holds the rope, ready to catch you. In other words, your partner “belays” you. It’s the ultimate trust fall. Facing the challenges of rock climbing with your partner also teaches you how to overcome adversity together and improves communication as you both work to conquer the wall. The best part about rock climbing is that it’s easy to try out. Most climbing gyms rent out the supplies you need for a small fee. And with hundreds of climbing gyms open across the United States, there’s no wall blocking the way of you and your favorite new workout.

“On belay?”

“Belay on!”

No, these aren’t strange magic spells. They’re basic safety commands rock climbers use before they start their ascent. Rock climbing as a hobby and a workout has been growing in popularity over the last few years, thanks in part to popular documentaries like “Free Solo” and “Meru.” But if you’re still not ready to chalk up and start climbing, here are a few more reasons to add “belay on” to your vocabulary. IT’S A FUN FULL-BODY WORKOUT. Getting a full-body workout usually means hating every second of it. This isn’t the case with rock climbing, though. Most people take up rock climbing because it’s fun. Reaching the top of a wall is like solving a puzzle with your whole body. That said, fun doesn’t mean easy. An intense climb works out your back muscles, biceps, abs, and legs. Research published in The Scientific World Journal found that climbers can burn up to 10 calories a minute — without even getting drenched in sweat during their workout.
