Elyn’s Glossary of Green | Part Three

We’re back with another installment of Elyn’s Glossary of Green. We heard your desire to know more about confusing terms being used and what it means for you, an eco-friendly, busy woman always on the go.  As a sustainable products company, we had similar questions and worked together as a team to discern which ones are important and how they impact our lives. We’re proud to share Elyn Glossary of Green, Part Three where we’ve collected terms related to a green lifestyle and distilled them for the most pertinent points.
