Get the Gunk Out of Your Water

A simple way to get healthier tap water is to use a filter. Options abound, from a standalone pitcher to a unit integrated into the main line. You also have a choice of technologies, including carbon filtration and reverse osmosis.

Look for the Organic Label

Attention shoppers: The USDA’s green-and-white seal ensures that what you’re getting meets the government’s organic standards. For updates and other information on the National Organic Program, call the USDA at 202-720-3252 or visit www.ams.usda.gov/NOP.

Go Back to the Future with a Root Cellar

Get the most out of your organic garden (or of your local farmers market) by installing a root cellar. Today’s models go far beyond the dirt-floor basement space great-Grandma used; to learn how to build your own, check out The Complete Root Cellar Book by Steve Maxwell and Jennifer MacKenzie (www.amazon.com).
