This week on Monday A La Mode...
Before You Check Out These Great Links:
- Think twice about which browser you are using. The Better World Shopping Guide gives Firefox an A for their overall rating. And Google gets an A- for being a leader in the fight against global warming and for being one of the most ethical companies in the world. Internet Explorer received an F, as did Bing and MSN.

- Pouring salt onto a runny spill in the kitchen, like cooking oil or raw egg, will make it easier to clean up. Let the salt sit for about 15 minutes and it will absorb most of the mess! This also works on carpet!
- Cotton balls soaked in salt water (1 tsp salt per pint of water) make a great compress for puffy eyes. Lie with eyes closed and cotton balls on eyelids for 15 minutes and puffiness will go away!

Green Companies I'm Loving this Week:
- Patagonia's clothing is all organic and has been for years. They completely gave up non-organic cotton in 1996. They use humanely harvested down gathered from abandoned nests. And they helped form the Sustainable Cotton Project (SCP) to encourage more farmers to grown organic cotton. And The Better World Shopping Guide gave Patagonia their coveted and hard to get A+ rating. Click here to visit their website where you can do more than just shop.
- Rawganique carries a large array of organic cotton linen clothing and a full line of hemp clothing, as well as hemp rope and yarn. You can also by hemp fabric by the yard. Click here to visit their site and while you are there, read about why they are not using bamboo.
If You've Ever Considered Organic Gardening:
- Check out the amazing variety of organic gardening supplies at GardensAlive.com by clicking here, including organic fertilizer and live ladybugs. Right now, if you sign up for their email newsletter you will receive a $25 gift certificate!
- Look for heirloom seeds. One site that offers a large variety is Seed Savers Exchange. Heirloom varieties are non-GMO and many could be lost to the world without organizations like Seed Savers. Click here to order seeds or find out more about this organization's mission.
