TreeHouse is like Home Depot with a green conscience

Green (Living) Review

Stores like Lowe’s and Home Depot often don’t live up their promise of “home improvement.” After all, if we’re throwing away useful old materials, buying new stuff, and working all weekend just to keep up with the latest trends in design and decor, but the house still leaks like a sieve and gobbles electricity, what’s really being improved?

Clean hands, clean conscience

Eco Friendly Daily

A long time ago humans discovered that hygiene is one of the keys to good health. People started to realize that being clean usually meant not getting sick and it was observed that doctors had a much higher rate of patient deaths when they did not wash their hands. Since then we have progressed from the idea that bathing once a year is enough to the idea that bathing at least once a day is enough and there is not a limit on how many times we can wash our hands in a day.

No, you can’t drink cow’s milk with a clear conscience

Eccorazzi

The NZ Farmer side of Stuff wants to clear your conscience so you can go on drinking cow’s milk. Cows need the wide open eyes of those who are no longer able to turn off their conscience long enough to choke back the corrupt secretions being marketed to us. Careful, it could make you choke on your almond milk.

A Clear Beer Conscience: Organic Beer

Eco Friendly Daily

During university, I worked at a liquor store part-time. Maybe it was my limited budget at the time, maybe it was my disdain for eco-friendly mass-consumerism, maybe it was my ardently traditionalist beer tastes, but I was pretty skeptical of the organic beer in our cooler. After all, my love of beer dates back to my childhood when the warm, toasty smells of my Dad’s home-brew used to permeate our kitchen.

What To Look For in Eco-Friendly Products

Living Green & Saving Energy

While many consumers and CEOs would argue that it’s important to be environmentally conscience, it can be hard to tell which companies are actually committed to being green and which are just saying they do to look great. We’re living in an age where just about every company touts itself as green.

Can I keep it?

Let me assure you that I have no doubts about how much they contribute to individual birds and to the ravaged conscience of modern man. So I will wrestle with my conscience about including the owl on my list and for momentarily doubting the great work of rehabilitators everywhere. This week, I have been pondering the value of bird rehabilitators. A world without bird and/or mammal, fish and reptile rehabilitators would be a very sad one.

8 Reasons Why the World Will Never Hear an Apology from Brock Turner.

Where To Get a Heritage Turkey

Sustainability Ninja

Enjoy your dinner with a clear conscience this year! Organic turkey is a far, far better choice this Thanksgiving, especially compared to the antibiotic-laden turkeys available at your local big box chain grocery store. In fact, those pale, plastic wrapped meatsicles can hardly be called birds. For the true sustainable Thanksgiving dinner, you must find yourself a heritage turkey.

Why it’s great that Elephant is “Wrong,” sometimes. And, “Elephant Should be Free!”

Elephant Journal

Liberal or literal?

10,000 Birds

Oh, the exquisite agony of finding a glorious bird and having to wrestle one’s conscience before including it as a lifer. This week brings the quandary of whether suspect provenance should disqualify a bird from my life-list. The bird in question is possibly the best looking one that I have seen this year and goes by the name of Collared Finchbill or Spezixos semitorques.

The Birds of Eigg by John Chester

Indeed, my only complaint about this book is that, having not visited Eigg myself, I can’t in good conscience put it on my shelf of souvenirs. Besides birding, I have another hobby that I like to indulge when I travel: seeking out books from small regional presses. Nearly every town with a souvenir shop has a book or two about the local ghost stories, true crimes, battlefields, and the like.

How I Got Ill on a Vegan Diet and Why I Ended Up Listening to My Body

Eccorazzi

But even if that weren’t the case, I’d still be vegan, because instead of listening to my body I prefer to listen to my conscience. And my conscience tells me that using animals when I don’t need to is morally wrong. I’d been vegan for six and a half years when it happened. It was entirely unexpected, and it left me feeling completely drained and questioning my lifestyle choices. Sadly, I’m writing this essay to confess that I finally had to listen to my body.
