Caring for our immediate environment is a priority for us and for many of our customers. As individuals, it is difficult to influence larger decisions about the environment, but we can certainly do things at a micro-level. The products in our Household Goods section have been selected so that we all can do 'what we can'.

Adopting the 'Green House' principles will cut down on the chemicals in your immediate environment. It will also save money and contribute to a greener environment for future generations.
