She Lives Off What We Throw Away
They're called freegans — eco-extremists who subsist on what we toss in the trash. Are they crazy — or are we?

Welcome! We know that you would just love to "do the right thing" for yourself and the planet if it were convenient, fun, inexpensive, and made you feel good. But until now you have lacked a good source of advice for real people leading busy lives.

Bottled Water? Just Say No

Now Colorado doesn't just have to worry about the oil companies sucking up all their water, because Nestle has joined in on the fun.

It seems the nation’s thirst for fossil fuels is matched only by their actual thirst. And we quench that just as irrationally as the former. Yeah, those little plastic bottles that everyone is so addicted to, and that people like me try to make them feel guilty about. I admit it--I’m a anti-bottled water zealot. Seeing cases of the stuff in people’s Costco carts drives me almost as insane as the vision I saw last fall in Phoenix--sprinklers running on bright green lawns, in the middle of the day, water gushing down the gutter. But bottled water has a special place in my scold’s heart......

Sacred Vibes Healing is a great healing oasis in Brooklyn-- a natural feast for all senses. I've known the proprietor, Karen Rose, for five years and the store is a reflection of her calm spirit.

For me, this is why we value and strive for "green" in the first place... to revel in the bounty of life.


P.S. this is also one of those great unique small businesses that you just don't find much anymore in a world of franchises. Go experience the difference!
