Last weekend many Upton residents learned about being ‘green’ at A Little Common Sense located on the town common.
Visitors were educated about the Upton State Forest from Bill Taylor, President of the Friends of Upton State Forest, a non-profit group dedicated to enhancing and protecting the natural history of the Upton State Forest. Bill had a table full information about the forest as well as several items for sale as part of the Friends of Upton State Forest’s fundraising efforts. Currently the Friends of the Upton State Forest are working to preserve the remaining nationally important buildings of Camp SP25, CCC located at Upton State Forest. For additional information visit friendsofuptonstateforest.org
If you wanted to learn how to clean green, the nationally-recognized green home keeping expert was on hand, Leslie Reichert, “The Cleaning Coach.” Leslie had several sample ‘green’ cleaners, including a homemade concoction of baking soda, borax, table salt and an essential oil which can be used to scrub your sinks and tubs. Her mission is to teach and encourage the ‘art’ of green home keeping. Leslie is now making cleaning ‘green’ easier, visit shopgreencleaning.com.
