30 days & ways to greater green – Day 10 (Lighten up)

I’m kinda a candle-holic – not only do they brighten up a table setting or a room in more ways than just the flicker but they also make an awesome hostess gift if you’re ecotaining at someone else’s home (or hey, let it be a gift for ecotaining at YOUR home). Here are some new faves that are greener & greater…
