Make Spring Cleaning Not Suck: Friends, Food and Fabulous Scents are Key

Eco Chic

I love using Mrs Meyers cleaning products because (most importantly) they work well, but also, they smell divine! It’s the only scrub I’ve found that doesn’t destroy my hands after using—if you’re going to clean, you should get a nice aromatherapy boost from it, and Mrs. Meyers is healthier for the cleaner (that would be me!) OK, your spring cleaning might not be THIS fabulous, but it can be more fun than you think! Image via Flickr User Stephanie Carter.

What Stores Sell Natural, Healthy Food (North America)

image from greggavedon.com A very common question I receive is, "where can I find natural food?", especially when it comes to unique recipe ingredients. My answer is typically to go to your local natural market or buy online. Availability really depends on where you live, so I did a poll on the EVG Facebook page & Twitter to find out where my community shops, and here are their answers (it's quite the list!):
