Eco-Chic Home by Emily Anderson, is a book which embraces eco projects and ideas for the house. Here is a snippet, with an excellent tip to utilise lemons in your laundry wash:
Eco-bit: Natural Brightening. "After a few washes, clothes can become a little dingy. This is because soap builds up and gets trapped in the fabric.

There are better eco-options available when it comes to buying bleach, but the best thing to do is to avoid using it at all. As an alternative, try letting the sun do the whitening for you.
