Elkridge, Maryland (PRWEB) June 13, 2016
With summer just a few days away, Planet Aid is reminding everyone that there is still time to finish up neglected spring cleaning projects. To offer added encouragement, Planet Aid has released an updated online Spring Cleaning Guide that includes advice on a wide range of topics, from “Eco-Friendly Spring Cleaning Tips” to the seemingly incongruous “How to Avoid Spring Cleaning.” There are also interesting tidbits from the organization’s infographic, “The Truth About Spring Cleaning.”
Planet Aid’s environmental mission is primarily focused on collecting textiles and other unwanted items to reduce unnecessary waste and better utilize existing resources. The annual rite of spring cleaning can produce a wide variety of household and larger environmental impacts, including a surge in municipal waste and landfill disposal. The Planet Aid guide is intended to help mitigate those impacts. The Planet Aid Spring Cleaning Guide is a compendium of accumulated information and advice that the organization has gathered over the years.
“We want to help people tidy up and offer guidance in how to do so with the least environmental impact,” said Planet Aid President Ester Neltrup.
Here is the complete list of topics from the guide:
- Eco-Friendly Spring Cleaning Tips (infographic)
- The Truth About Spring Cleaning
- Eco Spring Fashion Finds
- Tips and Tricks for Getting Kids to Clean
