Not Martha


Today I visited the Environmental Home Center on First Avenue in Seattle*. I went to get some zeolite in mesh pouches for my car, as recommended by Treehugger, but I found all the cool home building and decorating stuff I could want. Recycled glass tiles, recycled paper composite countertops, environment and people friendly paint, cork and vinyl flooring in both subtle and bright colors, even hardwood flooring recycled from old buildings. I felt cooler just being there.

* It’s housed in a warehouse South of the West Seattle Bridge on First Ave and right before you head over that gentle rise bridge that tells you you’re now headed down towards the airport. The showroom, where you can purchase smaller items and order larger ones (like flooring), is on the West side of the street. There is a parking lot.
