The company was founded by a Elyse Petersen, who completed her MBA at the University of Hawaii who was a leader of the Net Impact chapter.

Melt the butter or coconut oil (Dr. Bronner’s is the BEST) in a skillet. I’ll admit it; I go a little hog-wild this time of year at the farmer’s market with the fruit.

How to Combat Aphids

Use diluted soap (not detergent, something natural like Dr. Bronners ) to spray on the plants. Aphids suck! Sap that is, from your gorgeous plants.

Green Life Smart Life

Pure Castile Soap (I like Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap). A couple of years ago after being fed up buying bottles of “green” window cleaner that never offered a larger sized re-fill version–I started making a few of my own cleaning products for everyday use around the house.
