Most people do not even consider the garage or more so what is "in" the garage an important part of greening up our lifestyle. The facts show this concept to be completely false as not only can our garage be green, but most everything in it as well.

For most families the garage will be the most-used portion of the home. We enter and leave our living spaces through the garage.

Save Ten With Angie's List!

We store all kinds of toxic items and other useless clutter in our garages. Heck, some of us can't even fit a car in the garage if we wanted to due to the unorganized mess that we use our garages for.

This section of Green Living Made Easy takes us out to the garage to roll-up our sleeves and get really organized, energy efficient and be able to make ourselves proud to show off our new green garage!
