Recycled yoga mats
The line between "hippie" and "yuppie" is thin these days, and I sometimes wonder which side I fall on. After dinner tonight, the air was filled with a warm, sweet rain, and I walked to the store that is quickly becoming my favorite Berkeley shop, to return a video and dispose of a used battery. Elephant Pharm is replete with good-for-the-world products: they sell organic Fig Newtons, fair trade tea, recycled aluminum foil, and yoga mats made from reclaimed tennis shoes. When they say that the "quality of life in Berkeley is high", they don't just mean the whether.
