Conscious Consumerism

Holding strong with all the Earth Day mojo that is spreading across the globe, my wife signed us up for green dimes. For $36.00 dollars a year (dime a day - hence the title green dimes) they will stop/limit the amount of junk mail that comes into your house (can I get an amen) and furthermore they will plant a tree in your name every month for the entire year. Being a novice woodworker it feels good to have twelve trees planted.

While I'm pimping my wife's green shopping, she also purchased Shaklee
- "Healthy Home Pack", green, safe and powerful home cleaning products. We have been using Seventh Generation home cleaning products, which we have been very happy with, just thought we would try some new companies.

It's a good day when ethics and economics merge into conscious consumerism.
