What is wilson silverleaf? We're organitarians; it's best for our bodies and the planet. We cloth diapered Nina for the same reason. We drive a hybrid car & wish we could afford solar panels on our house. I'm a strong advocate for homebirth, full-time mom, & also a movie junkie. We don't have a tv though; we watch dvds on our computer. We love contradancing. I garden & knit; Larry's a puzzle lover & plays fantasy football.

Our family has been trying to avoid items made in China for a while--mostly for human rights reasons, but also because China's environmental record is ATROCIOUS. The recent recalls of children's items with lead paint only reinforces our convictions. We are not perfect, but consciousness is helpful when making purchasing decisions. It can tip the scales against buying something significantly. And now there is a new blog that will help us make those buying decisions; go check out notchinamade.net. They're also having a contest; you can win a 50$ gift certificate to American Apparel, which makes wonderful t-shirts (I'm wearing one right now), 100% made in the USA. They also have an organic cotton line of clothing.
