Gaiam Sale

Gaiams annual sale is on, and I found this bomb bamboo stool for extra office seating at home. It's not Eames, but was under $100 with shipping.

Krogers......Organics for everyone?

Sometimes I just don't get enough fresh veggies from the Eastern Market on the weekend and find myself desperate and without any time to run all over town for organic goods. My local Kroger store has some good choices and OK prices in a pinch.

Get Busy...........

You’re astonishing…how dare you waste it.

You and your organization have the power to change everything.

To create remarkable products and services.

To over deliver. To be the best in the world.

… the lesson is simple: if you’ve got, as much as you’ve got, use it.

Use it to become the best in the world, to change the game,

to set the agenda for everyone else…

… if its not going to put a DENT in the world, quit. Right now.

- Seth Godin

I usually don't post stuff like this, but it seemed right to do so ....somehow

Children's Green Dining Set

Green toys for kids? Yes ....they are out at your local stores, you just have to look a little harder. While at my local Target, I found this recycled plastic dining set as well as a potting kit for your little ones for all that outdoor summer time fun.

Rechargeable batteries

It has been a hard week for replacing stuff around the house. I don't like to replace anything because it seems wasteful and not so ECO. If I can find things at resale shops or garage sales I am content, but the rechargeable battery/charger kits I have found at local department stores don't seem to last? So I'm going out on a limb and trying these nickel zinc version from an unknown manufacturing company. I found them at wish me luck!

Charter Club Organic sheets @ Macys

Organic cotton anything can be tricky and costly. So many times before I have bought organic cotton t-shts or sheet sets and after 4 months they have holes in them or fall apart. I am a ruff sleeper and tend to have the sheets changed twice a week, but I have a Energy Star washer and dry them on the line in the yard , so I think that makes up for all my neurotic bedding ways and over washing. I'm going to try this Charter club set from Macy's this week because they are on sale at %40 off and I hope they last at least 6 months this time.....

Earth gro Organic Humus/Manure

It smells.... cause its poop, but after only a week of it in my garden, my flowers are brighter and fuller? Maybe I'm just crazy, but for under $2 a bag at my local Home Depot this seems to be the best buy of the past week.

Kiehls Aloe Vera Body Wash

Here is another great product from Kiehls that I just tried out, and have found to be quite good. This aloe vera biodegradable liquid body wash scrubbed all the garden dirt and grim away with ease and its bottle is P.E.T . When will all companies get on the bandwagon with great earth friendly packaging?
