We have friends coming into town from San Francisco today, and it’s the first time we get to meet their new bay girl – we are so excited! Although I am sure they will be exhausted after a 6 hours drive with a 2 year old and 4 month old, we are really looking forward to hanging out with them. It’s amazing how things come full circle – the dad has been my best friend since we were 3 an we have remained as such since then and here we are having kids (us too, hopefully soon) and acting all grown up. Time sure does fly, but it’s incredible what happens during that time…

Replacing the plastic fruit and vegetable bags in the grocery store is difficult – unless you are Green as a Thistle and you look for a better alternative. I have to get on the ball and get some of these too.

Need some no doubt, sure-fire signs that global warming is happening? The Alternative Consumer has them for you.

What Kind of toxic, carcinogenic crap is in your perfumes, laundry detergent, and lotion? Well, due to an FDA loophole, companies that make this stuff don’t have to reveal ingredients if they’re part of a ”˜fragrance’.

And lastly, a great article about green consumers over at Green Options: Will a recession, or the prospect of a recession, curb consumer desire for green products? In the shadow of flat growth, will corporations slow their corporate social and environmental initiatives?…The question on my mind is whether an economic downturn will play a factor when consumers shop. Will green products take a backseat again?

Have a fantastic weekend everyone!

  1. Green products will ALWAYS take a back seat for most consumers until the cost to buy a green product is on par with or cheaper than buying a conventional product.

    In the Wal-Mart World(TM), most consumers are looking for a good price, not a good impact.

    Hopefully, that will change as more and more people realize the harm that is doing to the Earth.

    Namaste,
