Still Searching!!!
Trying to Buy Green is not always so easy on the pockets......
I am still searching for my couch. I didn't get much accomplished much this weekend as far as looking for my couch. Instead we spent the weekend hanging out in the Mountains and visiting friends on the river. I did though find some beautiful eco-friendly options online but the issue always is with the price. I mean I have been eco-friendly before the words were even used outside of my tree-hugger world. My business was started with this as a major factor before mainstream retail world began using the term. But purchasing green furniture is just so darn expensive. Here is what I found this weekend that I really love and sort of similiar to the other one from last week, but really can't afford.
