Going green inside the home is easy

The environment is very important to us at LB Medwaste. Going green inside the home can seem overwhelming — not to mention expensive. But if you break things down a little, converting to an environmentally friendly home is actually easy to do, and doesn’t have to be costly. We’ve compiled a list of simple, low-cost ways you can implement to conserve energy, help the environment, and make living that much healthier. And, there’s more to it than simply recycling.
