Sunday Surf: Natural & Green

It has been kind of a crazy week. I escorted my mother to the doctor on Tuesday, then she went to the ER early Thursday morning. She is still in the hospital now. I've also gotten around to some writing this week that I've been putting off for a couple months. Here are the few links I've found worth sharing this week.

This article from a couple of years ago provides some great information on how to How do I go green?baby step your way into using cloth toilet paper! While the idea in general may be larger than a "baby step," I've been thinking that I want to try this. This article is a great place to start and sounds much better than the shop towels my mother has offered to me!
