Apr. 19 /CSRwire/ - LOS ANGELES -- Now that spring is here, be kind to the environment and protect your health as you go about spring cleaning, home renovations and shopping. Here are tips from the organizers of LOHAS 9 Forum: Getting to the Heart of Conscious Commerce, which will take place April 25-27 in Marina del Rey, California.


  • Use earth-friendly paints for walls, bamboo instead of wood to re-do floors, and environmentally-friendly products to clean your home.
  • Add solar-powered garden lights or panels for household power. Switch to lower-energy compact fluorescent lighting in the home.
  • Consider a hybrid or at least conserve gas to save money and help us decrease our dependence on fossil fuels.
  • Use organic cotton sheets and towels, which are healthier to use and better for the environment.
  • Recycle old clothes. Donate them to charity or swap with friends. Buy fashionable clothing made from recyclable, recycled or reclaimed fabrics. Designers are now using innovative, earth-friendly fabrics like bamboo jersey and Eco-Spun, made from plastic soda bottles.
  • Let your dollars speak for you. Invest in eco-friendly companies. Buy local, buy organic and buy efficiently; you don't need that two-for-one deal if you'll throw it away.
  • If you're sending flowers for Mother's Day, graduation or another occasion, send organic buds that are better for the environment and your loved ones who won't have to breathe in pesticides.

    To hear experts in health, the environment, business and media speak on the environment and sustainability, marketing and branding, building LOHAS community and more, come to the LOHAS 9 Forum: Getting to the Heart of Conscious Commerce.
