Green Spring Cleaning: Clean Slate, New Habits

A clean closet is only the beginning of a greener yearWith winter behind us, it's time to embrace the season of rejuvenation by reducing clutter and attacking grime. This week we're providing tips to green your spring cleaning and give your home a fresh beginning.

Tip #4: Revamp Your Green Routine

After you've purged your closets (recycling everything, of course) and dusted off your shelves, set the stage for a cleaner, greener year. Use spring cleaning as an excuse to reorganize your recycling bins for maximum efficiency or make sure a hibernating bike is tuned up and ready to ride. Clear out pantry space so that you'll have room to store staples bought in bulk. Get out your calendar and designate a regular schedule for repair projects or start hosting monthly repair-a-thons with friends.

Share your tips: What are your green goals for the year and how will you achieve them?
