These days, when I read environmental books or articles, I usually have on my heavy duty critical thinking cap. Sometimes, I get so involved in picking apart the nitty gritty details of a book that I can’t see the forest for the trees. Yes, that’s a huge cliche, but it’s apt. And I also forget [...]Read the full post.
Back in October, I wrote about the Penguin soda maker from SodaStream. It seemed like a great way to have soda without all the plastic bottle waste. I won’t go into the full details again. Please read my original Penguin post here. At the time, there were two drawbacks to the machine: the price (over [...]Read the full post.
So, you guys know how much I love Fudge is My Life fudge sauce from San Francisco, right? I’ve gushed over it here and here and here. But I buy it only occasionally, one jar at a time, from the grocery store. (It’s pretty pricey.) So it was a huge surprise a few days ago [...]Read the full post.
Move along. Move along. Nothing to see here, folks. That means you, little black kitty cat. Move! Arya has been in such big trouble this week, causing her human mom (Beth) to yell and yell and her human dad (Michael) to cover his ears and then frantically rearrange the house to give Arya fewer things [...]Read the full post.
So a few weeks ago, I started to write about how I and a couple of guys from Green Sangha had begun the Low Carbon Diet challenge (as if we all need one more freakin’ challenge right now!) but I was tired and feeling fluey and never finished the post. Well, I’m back on it. [...]Read the full post.

July 7, 2008 GPC Pet Products1600 Oregon StreetMuscatine , IA 52761 Dear GPC Pet Products: I [...]Read the full post.
I love living in the Bay Area. Especially after reading Life Less Plastic’s post about all the plastic and Styrofoam at her city’s Taste of Chicago festival. Here are some images from Berkeley’s Independence Day celebration at the Marina: I especially love that the garbage containers are labeled “Landfill” and explain what goes to the [...]Read the full post.
Yikes! This photo reminds me of one of the plastic tallies from Fake Plastic Fish, The Early Days. So, in the interest of brevity and my own sanity, I’m going to group some items so the list doesn’t seem so long. Plastic items used this week but purchased before the plastic project began: 2 AC [...]Read the full post.
The Blogger posting screen is blank and white and taunting me. I’ve been procrastinating starting this post for the last two hours because I’m not sure what shape it should have or how to begin. So I’ll just dive in and see where the words lead. Maybe by the time you read this, I’ll have [...]Read the full post.

If you don’t know about it, Sustainlane is a great resource for finding environmentally-friendly products, services, and other resources. It’s a [...]Read the full post.
