The last time I got to see the night sky was during a religious retreat in the mountains of Colorado. We were outside at night walking back to our cars and I could see clearly without a flashlight. I looked up and it was like seeing diamonds scattered on rich velvet. It was magnificent and something I haven't forgotten.

I'm wary to these spiky balls (or hedgehogs) because they're made of plastic that may or may not be recyclable. The fact that they're made in China is even worse. I have started using Method's Dryer-activated Fabric Softener which comes in liquid form. Not only does it use natural and plant-based ingredients, but I can buy refills and continue reusing the same bottle. My clothes come out static-free and smelling of lavender.

I have an Amazon Prime account and I can tell you that it's not a credit card. It's a membership in which you pay the annual fee of $79 and you get the 2-day free shipping plus some (not all) free video streaming. The downside of Amazon Prime, and something that I wish you'd investigated, is the shipping under this program. I have ordered several items at the same time in the past which I thought would be shipped together, the way they used to when I didn't have Amazon Prime. Now Amazon seems to ship items as they please. So if I order 5 items, I usually get 2-3 separate shipments. Some of them are not even shipped in their smiley cardboard boxes, but in yellow, bubble wrap, unrecyclable envelopes. And I'll get 3 or 4 of those! So now I try to not order so much in one go to avoid this. Too bad your article doesn't get into that.
