Last night’s Green Cleaning First Friday Conversation was fantastic! Carisa Bunten of Seventh Street Gifts led us on an informed (yet informal) presentation of four easy, inexpensive, effective recipes for green cleaning. All of the ingredients she used were food grade and safe and most importantly, they work!

Carisa clearly knows her stuff, she is an excellent ambassador into the world of natural products. Her knowledge of the material pairs well with her kind and fun attitude. She is not here to shame you for using chemicals, but rather to invite you to consider using natural products instead, and her “invitation” last night got us all ready to ditch chemical cleaners.

Each participant walked away with a recipe for All-Purpose Cleaner, Furniture Polish, Toilet Bowl Cleaner, and a Fragrant Room Spray as well as wonderful samples of each to start us on our green cleaning journeys.

This is the second Green Cleaning presentation that we’ve had from Carisa at Imago, so we figured that the next time we’ll go to her. Look for an urban hike to her store in Newport for some time in the future.

Curious about her recipes for all-natural deodorant or toothpaste? Contact us and we’ll be happy to share.
