How to Save Energy and Reduce Waste at Home

There are many changes you can make to reduce the environmental impact your home and your daily life has on the planet. Being mindful of how much your household consumes is important and even simple changes like using green cleaning products, finding ways to reuse your kitchen scraps, or locking your windows shut can lead to a healthier home. We’ve asked experts, from New York to Sacramento, to share how to save energy, reduce your carbon footprint, and save money all in the comfort of your own home.

Pets = More Love (and bacteria)

Homes with dogs and cats have more bacteria and more types of bacteria in them than homes without these companions.1  There are two ways you can cut down on bacteria and pet odor with products recognized by the U.S. EPA’s Safer Choice and Design for the Environment Programs.

Tip 1: Wipe down high-contact surfaces regularly with  Beyond Multi-Purpose Disinfectant Cleaner.  This hydrogen peroxide formula kills 99% of Escherichia coli, Salmonella enterica, Staphylococcus aureus and Listeria monocytogenes on hard, non-porous surfaces.

Tip 2: Instantly freshen the places where your pets love to lounge…their bed, your bed, the couch, your car. Beyond Fabric & Air Mist is available in Extra Strength, Ocean Mist and Summer Sunrise scents and is safe for use on most fabrics and most importantly, it is safe to use around cats and dogs.

Best Way to Refresh

When using an odor eliminator type product, make sure you don’t forget some commonly overlooked areas like your living room. Many people don’t realize that you can utilize the power of Beyond Fabric and Air Mist on almost all fabric surfaces, such as curtains and couches. It’s even safe to use around pets, so you can help get Fido’s bed smelling more like the day you first bought it, and less like the last set of muddy paws that slept there.
