Reusable Paper Towel Tutorial
I was at the supermarket last sunday and considered buying paper towels for my kitchen but my treehugger mind told me not to and today checking pinterest got an interesting idea from a blog to make those towels I wanted without creating more waste.
What a great idea! Anything that makes it easier for us to conserve resources is a win in our book!
Over the past four years, the Unist’ot’en clan of the Wet’suwet’en nation have literally built a strategy to keep three proposed oil and gas pipelines from crossing their land. Concerned about the environmental damage a leak could cause on land they’ve never given up, they’ve constructed a protection camp to block pipeline companies. As opposition to the development of Alberta’s tar sands and to fracking projects grows across Canada, with First Nations communities on the front lines, the Unist’ot’en camp is an example of resistance that everyone is watching.
A powerful video that everyone in the US and Canada MUST see. With the recent approval for the Keystone Oil Pipeline in the United States, we emulate the peaceful protesting of the Unist’ot’en clan.
Thank you West Elm for creating this grant! We loved hearing the story of Little Seed Farm and seeing their success.
It’s that time of year again! And there’s nothing better than a warm wool carpet or rug to keep your toes snuggly through the cold winter days.
Why we love wool: Natural wool fiber is a rapidly renewable material because the sheep can be sheared annually throughout the duration of their life! Shearing before lambing helps keep the animals cleaner during birth and is also believed to help the lamb have an easier time finding the udder. The sheep are usually sheared in April when the weather is the warmest so the sheep have an easier time adjusting.
Our favorite brands include Earthweave, Hibernia, Mohawk, PacifiCrest, and Unique Carpets Ltd. Earthweave is commercially rated for durability and does not do any chemical moth-proofing. Search Green Goods Products for the carpet that meets your design needs. Healthy for the environment and your family!

It looks like an underwater tornado, but a diver was actually stuck in the middle of a huge school of fish. The fish swarmed around Mika Woyda in their thousands as she swam off the coast of Cabo Pulmo, Mexico.
Her husband Caine Delacy snapped the breath-taking images of Mika in scenes he revealed he had never witnessed in 20 years of diving. Before entering the water the couple, who live in Boulder, Colorado, had some shots in mind but never imagined what they would capture. (Caters News)
