Baffled by the denial of that systemic racism exists in the States today, I did my best to have a discussion about race, and racism - with an insulted white person.
A visit to the doctor's office shouldn't result in an allergic reaction from perfumes. Time to write an email - Kaiser Permanente will you please respond?
Hi Seventh Generation, My partner went out to buy me pads, and came home with your brand’s, thinking they were a good choice, environmentally speaking. As I normally buy ”green” pads (containing no plastic materials etc), I was a bit concerned when trying to understand what I just had gotten in my hand. As far … Continue reading Email #7: “Green” Pads?
Yesterday I wrote an email to a person arranging a course in the south of Europe (with participants from Sweden mainly), and suggested they could inspire people to take the train down through the continent rather than flying – having a whole group of people take flights for a trip like this will have such … Continue reading Email #6: Love and Light is Not a Complete Answer

According to the homepage all their products are "natural", and everything they say actually sounds really nice...whereby I got a bit confused since I … Continue reading Email #2 – “Natural” Room Fresheners (Eco Branding, again)

“One email a day…keeps the doctor away”..? I don’t know if that is true. But I think it was that saying, about the apple, that popped up in my head one morning. Having moved away from my usual circle of friends, family, well, even culture, I’ve found myself getting upset, over and over again. ” … Continue reading One email a Day
