The pollution of the environment outside is a growing concern, but so too is the air we breathe inside our homes. On average we spend up to 90% of our time indoors, and statistics from the EPA state that indoor air pollution is often 6-12times worse than outside. After decluttering for spring cleaning, consider going green with your cleaners.
Most are available at most stores and you can also make your own. Be sure to read labels as some products are greenwashing and not as green as they can be. Here are some on line resources.

Someone asked me if being green in organizing was simply another excuse to hold onto trash and keep clutter. ABSOLUTELY NOT!
There was an article in the N & O a few years ago about an artist who makes art from stuff people want to throw away. Some people might see it as junk, but this man has chosen to make something artistic out of it. I am not a big fan of modern art, so I can see how people wouldn’t appreciate what he has created. Alas, beauty is in the eye of the beholder!
So many times when I see organizing or cleaning shows on TV I see all of this good stuff just being chucked into a container to be dumped at a landfill later. Eco-organizing is about recycling what you can according to your local laws; reusing items that are in good condition; donating items, such as clothes, that can be used by someone else. There are many alternatives out there (freecyle/Craigs List, etc.) for you to give to someone else instead of simply pitching. I prefer to think of it as organizing and letting go of clutter responsibly.
It is not healthy for anyone to hold onto too much stuff, even if they want to be green; I help clients find alternatives to letting go of items so they can feel good about letting go. To learn more about my eco-organizing code of ethics go here:
Lovin what you have and not taking home something you don’t need; here are some questions to ask yourself before making that purchase!
Tuesday, May 14th, 7-9 PM I will be moderating this panel!
- Are you losing money because you haven’t gotten around to joining your company’s matching contribution retirement program?
- Do you get sick often because you are always doing everything at the last minute exhausting yourself?
- Are you following your passion or are you planning to do it “someday”?
- Do you need to lose weight but put off going to the gym or cooking healthy meals?
- Are you stressed in your marriage because your spouse doesn’t finish projects or pay bills on time?
- Do your co workers resent you because you aren’t completing your projects on time?
Procrastination is more than a bad habit; it can hurt your health, career, finances, and even your relationships. Plus, people who procrastinate tend to engage in bad habits, like binge drinking, overeating, and abusing drugs.
HOWEVER, it is possible to overcome procrastination! Discover the keys to live a more productive, happy and healthy life with wisdom fromthree OVERCOMING PROCRASTINATION experts, who have helped thousands enhance the quality of their lives by teaching them how to tackle pesky postponing and overcome perceived obstacles. During this program, they will share their expertise and insights on how to stop dragging your feet and get motivated!
Psychologist Susan Orenstein shares, “Procrastination is one of the most common causes of stress, interfering with your productivity and peace of mind, but until you can identify what and why you’re putting something off, it’s hard to change.” In this seminar, Susan will show you how to identify your specific procrastination traps and then provide powerful tips to set you free. You won’t want to put this opportunity off!
Professional Organizer Geralin Thomas works with procrastinators and knows the typical reasons why many tasks remain unfinished, items purchased remain unopened and unused, and *stuff* sits buried in closets, cabinets and drawers – – untouched. It’s not about the stuff, it’s about getting to the stuff and getting stuff done. Thomas believes that, procrastination is not a destination; it’s more about motivation and education. Listen in as she shares tips she uses to motivate underwhelmed and overwhelmed clients who are procrastinating.
“When you understand what procrastination really is, you’ll quit beating up on yourself for it. It is not a character flaw, it’s an adaptation you’ve made to try and regain your energy autonomy!” states Author and Spiritual Growth Facilitator Julia Rogers Hamrick. She’ll give you a new perspective on why you put things off, show you what to do when you find yourself resisting doing something you need to do, and offer you some strategies for shifting out of procrastination and into productivity with ease. She explains, “Procrastination doesn’t exist in Easy World, the world that Love creates.”
THIS EVENT IS A LIVE, INTERACTIVE CLASS VIA SKYPE YOU WATCH ON YOUR COMPUTER OR SMART PHONE. You will be able to call or chat in questions after each guest and at the end. CAN’T MAKE IT LIVE? Workshop will be recorded & available to view up to 7 days after the event.
