Environmentally Friendly Household Cleaners
We believe that home should be the safest place in the whole world. And, that you shouldn’t have to sacrifice powerful convictions for powerful cleaners. 7. We use Shaklee Get Clean products. Nine years ago, I learned that most of the products meant to ‘clean’ our homes actually contain alarming amounts of poisons. Poisons that cause immediate harm, and ones that can cause ailments such as asthma, cancer and emphysema. According to the national organization, Safe Kids USA, there are more than 1.2 million unintentional poisonings per year of kids under five years old. Shaklee Get Clean products contain natural biodegradable cleaning agents. They also have no phosphates, borates, nitrates or other stuff the planet doesn’t appreciate. They are super concentrated, so Shaklee takes out the water and saves you money. I’ve become such an advocate of Shaklee’s Get Clean products and their nutritional supplements, I am now a member. If you'd like further information about Shaklee health and nutrition products call me, I'd be happy to share.

Indoor Air Quality
1. We vacuum every day. 2. We do not use chemical based aerosol sprays for room freshening. We use only fresh air, natural orange peel spray and essential oils. 3. We do not allow any smoking in our house. 4. We use a 90% efficiency furnace that continually pulls fresh air from the outdoors. Our furnace has a second heat exchanger which supplements the primary heat and saves energy. 5. We keep our home dry with a humidity control sensor on our furnace. 6. We change our furnace filter once every four months.
We Eat Healthy!
8. Each day we choose healthy meals for the children. We eat many fresh fruits and locally grown vegetables, while limiting refined sugars, processed meats, and prepackaged foods. Thanks to our teachers’ great cooking skills, we are able to pre-plan and prepare several homemade meals each week. 9. In 2011, Mr. Lou created a children’s garden! He built a special place just for little green thumbs. Having a garden has been phenomenal! The children have planted many yummy vegetables, including tomatoes, corn, lettuce, green peppers, peas, carrots, sunflowers, broccoli and cauliflower. We also have grown our very own watermelon! Gardening has been a wonderful introduction into the world of fresh food! Because the children grow the food they take special interest in trying all of the food too. The most satisfying part of the whole process is watching the children devour all the grape tomatoes they can during outdoor free time every afternoon!
