Loyal reader Robin asked me to pimp out some classes she’s got coming up, and seeing as how she was so nice about the blog, I better oblige. She’s hosting a series of Green Living classes at the Greenlife Community Center, 70 Merrimon Ave.

Class One – Green Your Home (June 3rd)
This class covers topics such as identifying the best indoor air cleaning plants, choosing the most non-toxic furniture and home fixtures, and a review of green bedding and clothing. Additional topics include green building basics, all natural yard maintenance, greening your laundry process, and keeping an environmentally friendly home office.
Class Two – Green Your Body (June 24th)
This class covers topics such as finding out which organic produce you should choose and which items you may not have to spend the extra money on. Learn why you should select toxin-free personal care products, how to make your own cleaning products, and what food additives to avoid. Learn why the things we put on our body can be just as harmful as the things we put in our body.
Class Three – Conscious Consumerism (July 1st)
Do you know where the things you buy come from, who created them, and what resources were used to make them? Through a simple series of questions, find out where most of our shopping dollars are going and how we can make more informed choices to create real change. Topics discussed will include fair trade, buying local, and the simple living philosophy.
Class Four – Green Your Life (July 22nd)
This class covers topics such as how to reduce your energy and water consumption (what are your carbon and water footprints), what is and is not recyclable, how to compost, how to “green” your whole life, and how to identify greenwashing. Many additional green topics are covered – green burials, green entertainment, green pet care, and more!
