Most trash strewn on the street isn't from literbugs, but from wind.  Ill-fitting trash can lids or overflowing cans of debris are responsible.  Wind blows trash away or a wild animal rips open a plastic trash bag, causing trash to stray.  Using a trash can with a tight-fitting lid and not overfilling the can is the solution to this problem.

Eat organic grapes.  Imported grapes run a much greater risk of contamination than those grown domestically.  Vineyards can be sprayed with different pesticides during different growth periods of the grape, and no amount of washing or peeling will eliminate contamination because of the grape's thin skin.  If you are unable to find organic grapes, some safe alternatives are blueberries, kiwi, and raspberries.

Try these environmentally friendly cleaning remedies in your kitchen:  baking soda and water (sprinkle countertops with baking soda, then scrub with a damp cloth or sponge; if you have stains, knead the baking soda and water into a paste and let it set for a while before you remove it; this method also works great for stainless steel sinks, cutting boards, containers, refrigerators, oven tops, and more); If you need a tougher abrasive, sprinkle on kosher salt, and scrub with a wet cloth or sponge.
