I discovered products from Night Owl Paper Goods at an event with eco-friendly merchants and fell instantly for the postcards made of sustainably harvested yellow birch with sweet and simple designs of birds, flowers and butterflies (pictured). I bought a couple but they sat on my desk, where I admired the designs for a while—then I finally went ahead and framed them. Now I plan to go with my original intention of sending them by buying a few more.
By now you have probably figured out that it is far easier to do the right thing from the beginning than it is to undo the wrong thing.
Take paint for example: Did you know the EPA estimates that 64 million gallons of paint are diverted away from landfills and incinerators thanks to responsible disposal and recycling? The only problem is that the EPA also estimates it could cost close to $500 million to keep a handle on all that incoming paint.
Think of it as fine art china for your cat. The Whisker-Wide Bowl for cats is handcrafted in the USA, using 100 percent recycled glass. The bowls are shallow and wide, so they won’t disrupt your kitty’s whiskers while she is eating, and they are attractive enough that they won’t disturb your décor when she isn’t (if that is your look).
