Tips for a Green Spring

Indoors:

An example of house plants that are excellent at filtering the air you breathe.

Outdoors:

  • Keep your mulch source local. Many municipalities collect yard waste separately from household trash to produce compost that can be reused in public areas and sold to homes. Check your local government’s website to see if this service is offered. Or start your own backyard compost. For ideas on how to do this, go to http://www.p2pays.org/compost/.
  • Select native plants to include in your garden. Native Plants require less maintenance once they become established and are an important food resource for wildlife. For information on native plants, go to http://www.ncsu.edu/goingnative/.
