Some decent ideas are presented in this article. I was hoping for a better comparison with some numbers between, for example, impacts of paper towel vs. cloth usage. The charts at the end of each section are not very useful.

Pretty elementary even for a basic course. Short on solutions.

Hi Kirk, I appreciate you sharing your feedback with us. I'm sorry the course seemed a little too basic for your liking. While this course is a good fit for someone looking to understand the basics and get a sort of foundation down, it seems like you may be looking for a more advanced course. I hope you'll try another of GBRI's courses that might be a better match for your experience level. Thanks! Kayla

A basic overview of some of the actions that can be taken to lower your environmental footprint on a daily basis. As part of a large publication titled 'The ROOTs of a Greener Home' this shorter article provides insight into areas where simple changes in lifestyle may have large impacts. Laid out are several concepts that the homeowner can readily adopt in their daily living habits and actions resulting in more environmentally friendly lifestyle. Well a basic introduction it remains a valuable step in a journey that all should commence.

Thought it was going to be more about food/groceries given the picture.

Going ‘green’ at home is easier than you think. There are little things you can do every day to help save the environment and also save time and money in the long run.

This is quick and easy guide that looks at how we can make more conscious choices when buying groceries and other home supplies – something we all do at least on a weekly basis. The article looks at carrier bags, toilet paper and paper towels, printing paper and packaging. Each concept is introduced with a short explanation followed by a list of the environmental benefits, pros and cons from the homeowner’s perspective, a cost estimator for a standard home in the US, and a Project Rating box that helps gauge the difficulty of each project.

This article is part of the ROOTs of a Greener Home collection that looks at common projects and practices around the home where we can make a difference from water, lighting and transport to cleaning and wellbeing. I would recommend this and all other ROOTs articles for homeowners who would like to do their part for the environment.

Some time/cost/maintenance graphs would help enliven the content and show how simple changes can have big impacts.

This article is part of the GBRI book The ROOTs of a Greener Home. The article presents a number of ideas for reducing our ecological footprint by making the right choices when shopping and details common consumer issues including shopping bag use, paper product purchasing, and printer paper. The graphics are pleasant, easy to read and understand. Ideas for environmentally friendly alternatives include taking your own reusable grocery tote, reducing paper and packaging and buying environmentally preferable paper products. This is a very basic overview; I would recommend this presentation to the average homeowner who may not be familiar with these concepts.
