Just to warn you, I have been known to tell long winded, sometimes un-followable stories. My second goal of this blog is to stay laser focused on the challenges ahead and stay on track; if you don’t remember my first goal is to not be preachy, so far so good.
So back to that laser focus of mine, I want to find a career that allows me to fiscally survive in Los Angeles and provide benefit to the environment and my community at the same time. I have noticed a trend of new businesses sprouting up across the city. Many of these new small businesses are selling at your local farmers’ markets. To do some field research, I will be visiting a number of farmers’ markets in and around Los Angeles throughout the next few weeks and will highlight some of these new businesses opening up in your neighborhood. I want to see what green and organic products and services are being offered by these new businesses selling in your local communities. I will also highlight pricing for select organic fruits and vegetables at local farmers’ markets. So look forward to all of that.
And sad news, I had to let my cleaning person go. I need to be fiscally responsible now that I am in between gigs. I guess an unintended consequence of my life change is that I do not have to stock anything with toxic chemicals anymore. Now that I am back to full time maid, I would like save money by mixing my own brew of cleaning solutions. Though, the last time I mixed a solution I was in high school chemistry class so I better get to Googling, I might even visit a library.
You can help too, what type of natural ingredients do you use for your day-to-day cleaning, leave a comment, share the wealth, don’t be shy. — GreenUp! Guy
