Cristina & Christelle are environmental educators who run the Permacrafters online school. They teach about nontoxic living, green life hacks, and home DIY projects. They’ve created a video course on cleaning to accompany this handy reference book. (Upgrade any time.)
They are passionate about healthy living and – let’s be honest here – do not love cleaning, but it’s an inescapable part of life. They’d rather complete cleaning chores without trashing the planet, and without being exposed to neurotoxins, carcinogens, or hormone disrupters. (So picky, right?!) So, together, they spent years diligently developing and fine-tuning nontoxic planet-friendly recipes and tricks for their families to safely use.
“Using toxic chemicals to clean your home is not only dangerous, but also unnecessary to get the job done.”
“Our book is about green cleaning minus the greenwashing B.S. So let’s call ourselves out on where we fall short. Other than going foraging for English ivy to make homemade soap, making your own kombucha vinegar, using spent coffee grounds to remove odors, or collecting ash from a firepit to clean clothes, NO product is going to have a carbon neutral footprint. Not all the ingredients shared here are completely “green”, but perfection isn’t our goal. Our goal is to be educated about the negative ecological impact we have and to minimize it by making way better choices for the planet and our health, and getting creative in the process.”
