Popular NOW columnist Adria Vasil follows up her book of environmentally sound Canadian products and services with more practical tips, this time focusing on the home. Leaving the Birkenstock crew in the dust, Vasil understands that her readers don't want to be scolded, and most don't have thick wallets or time to make homemade laundry soap. Most helpful: ratings of so-called "green" cleaning products. Least helpful: the national directory of independent storefronts. Last time I checked, P'Lovers wasn't the only place in Nova Scotia offering environmentally friendly items.
