GO GREEN! ONE DAY AT A TIME
Posted on February 10 2018
As the holiday’s approach, you’ll be seeing more and more green. Christmas Trees, holiday sweaters, cash for office gift exchanges. At Emani, we see green every day, and we strive to do one thing differently every day makes to help make a difference.
Here’s a compilation of the Emani team’s favorite work-arounds to create a healthier home and office. They’re super easy to integrate into your every day life.
