Hope for the Future

Above, two adorable guests from Germany enjoy the old cedars in front of Chez Sven. What's the theme of the day? Obama's victory and hope for the children of the world! What's on the menu? Kale soup with organic kale and potatoes from the garden. What's important for your health? Using non-toxic products and foods. (Not sure about the sausage Sven loves in the soup though ...) I have written about body burden before in this blog. Now comes a conference, involving Seventh Generation and EWG, once more drawing attention to this problem. We are surrounded by chemicals. It is hard to avoid them. Many diseases are brought on by environmental triggers. According to the conference, there are environmental solutions, and that is the good news. We have to all work hard to raise consciousness about choices. Think twice every time you use a household product. Check the label. Don't buy beauty products until you have checked the ingredients. For a whole lot more information, read report on the conference in the Seventh Generation Newsletter and, as the year draws to a close, consider a contribution to the Environmental Working Group.
