"I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing." ~ Dame Agatha Christie

Green Products I Recommend (my recent Wal-Mart trek)

Yes, I confess I love Wal-Mart (as if you as my friends didn't already know that LOL!) I was there Friday night and picked up a fantastic new publication from National Geographic called Green Guide www.thegreenguide.com/ggbt that just started a print version (their website has been a source of knowledge for me for quite some time). A print subscription is only $15/year and this is the first issue ($4.95 cover price). Great articles include info on safer foods, green cleaners, ingredients to avoid in cosmetics, the recycling codes (and safety of using) regarding plastics--very informative but also very user-friendly. A magazine that I will refer to over and over--I saved a stamp and paper and subscribed online!

Found another green product I'll happily purchase going forward--100% recycled content toilet paper (I know--I could have worded that differently, but I was hoping to get a laugh or raised eyebrow from some of you LOL). White Cloud Green Earth is a 4-pack (440 2-ply sheets/roll) of toilet tissue made from 100% recycled fibers. Priced between the cheapest 4-packs and the premiums, it is a solid value. Not the truly softest (but not the commercial quality TP that reminds me of newsprint) and not snowy white (hypoallergenic and probably not bleached as many papers are) but even the packaging is recyclable (and there is 15% less of it that in some 4-packs). The only true downfall is that the website is printed too small on the labeling for my seasoned eyes to read, or I would attach it here.
