Green Living


Anyone that knows me knows that the environment is extremely important to me. The great thing about where we live is that it’s becoming easier and easier to live an eco-friendly way of life and save both money and the planet in the long run.

Since it’s a personal passion of mine I’m always learning about new ways to live green both in your home and your lifestyle. I am pleased to no end to share anything worthwhile I learn with people as any little bit I can do to help I will do.

This section will grow sizeably as I am able to add things in. Please in the mean time feel free to ask me any questions you might have on Green Living in Kingston.
