5 Tips for Greening the Closet

5 Tips for Greening the Closet

With Earth Day just around the corner, it is a good time to think about greening the home. One place that most people overlook when trying to make environmentally friendly choices is the closet. While it may be tucked way and largely out of site, the closet can play an important role in creating an environmentally friendly home. Greening the closet is not only important, but is actually quite easy!

“Our closets hold so much of who we are, from the clothes we wear on a daily basis to the special vintage items we want to preserve,” says Fred Silber of Creative Organization, a New Jersey-based company that has created a line of sustainable, eco-friendly closet organizing products. “Because they tend to hold so much, and such a variety of things, it is important to make sure that it is an area of the home that is not overlooked when trying to live in an environmentally friendly way.”

Here are five tips to keep in mind when greening the closet:

How Much Do D.C. Residents Actually Know About Bedbugs?

The D.C. Department of Health hosted their second "Bed Bug Summit" yesterday, January 20 in Downtown D.C..  The meeting was held in an attempt to help continue to educate locals about bed bug prevention and eradication.

“Home Saver”: In Tough Times, The Housing Finance Agency Makes Living Near Your Work Tenable

No sooner had the effects of our New Year’s Eve activities worn off when economists pounced to deliver the dreary news about what we can expect for our economy in 2011. Foreclosures are going to peak in 2011? Awesome. Thanks.

The District is not immune to this trend, which will mean hundreds of DC residents who are forced to move from their homes, probably settling in less expensive suburbs. This is exactly the kind of scenario we want to avoid in terms of the effect it has on transportation and commuting in our region. As people flock to the suburbs, from DC or elsewhere, they increase both traffic congestion and the need for additional transportation infrastructure and maintenance. goDCgo strongly encourages a “live near your work” strategy to reduce ill effects on an already-stressed transportation system and to improve the quality of life of those who work in DC—by remaining in DC.
