Soon, I’ve got some reviews coming up – Ice Pop Joy and Lifefactory 22-Ounce Beverage Bottle. Today, however, I’m running behind, so here are some links to keep you busy…
I’m loving – Night Owl Paper Goods’ new brightly colored designs (shown above). They’ve always had cute designs, but the new brighter colors really make these sustainable greeting cards pop.
Emo link – USA Today is running the world’s most depressing series – Saving Childhood. This series, all week, is covering issues like early puberty due to chemicals, consumerism, kids and nature and more. I’ve been following the series, because this is what parents should be focused on, but it is kind of making me want to grab Cedar, and all the other kids I can carry and move to a cave in the middle of nowhere.
I’ve been considering a patio garden this year, but have been a little lazy about it. Hopefully, this affordable, small space gardening piece at Mother Earth News will motivate me… maybe.
The INSANELY stupid link o’ the week – plastic companies are now suing reusable bag makers. Really?
Super, extra, ick-factor scary – All the Stuff You Don’t Want to Eat…But You Do Anyway. By scary, I mean beaver’s anal glands in vanilla ice cream. Ugh… P.S. the organic ice cream we buy is 100% beaver’s anal gland free!
The second season of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution is kicking off tonight. I don’t love much current TV, but I do love this show, so I’m excited. Sadly, since we don’t have cable, I’m going to have to wait until tomorrow. Hopefully the show will be on the Internet by then.
Homemade, on the cheap, mac n’ cheese for kiddos (and adults). Cedar just recently decided that mac n’ cheese is an okay dish to eat, so I was happy to see a homemade version. This recipe looks super easy and would make a nice side dish – remember to use organic ingredients though.
A little off topic but… Why B**ch Isn’t a Selling Point. This post isn’t so much green, but being an avid blog reader, I don’t love when I run across blogs that use a mean attitude to sell said blog. I don’t think it’s so bad to be nice; you know?
What are you reading and loving this week?
