Coming up for air...

Such a long time since I's hard to believe how quickly the months have flown by. So many things to tell you about! Sun-powered roads in Italy, the world's first hybrid tugboat, the wonder food spirulina, solar parking lots, microbes that can clean up toxic waste, and so much more.

When not working my full time job, I've been busy developing a line of organic soap, shampoo, lotions, etc. for people, like myself, who suffer from chemical sensitivity. Thanks to my friends and family I've been able to try different recipes and the results are encouraging. It's been an incredible learning experience. I am working on developing organic fragrances, as well, since fragrance chemicals are the leading cause of sensitivity in a high percentage of individuals.

If you haven't already read "The High Cost of Progress", please do so. Support the companies making products that are safe, and made with sustainably produced ingredients. Check out local sources of organic products. Your local health food store will often carry products made by local artisans. The best way to influence the marketplace is with your purchasing power. If more people demand safe, sustainable products, then more of those products will become available, and the more affordable they will be.

Until next time...become the change you imagine.
