SCRIPT: Lifestyles, I'm Brian Osuch. It's Earth Day and the perfect time to focus on ways to go a little greener in your day-to-day living. Jen Boulden is a green expert…
CUT: (Boulden) Make small changes to your cleaning routine. Select a lower water temperature for your laundry, wait until loads of dishes are full before washing and use concentrated cleaning supplies until they are finished, without wasting any of the products.
