Molly bought me an adirondack chair for my birthday earlier this year. This weekend, I am finally getting around to staining it. I wanted to use a non-toxic, eco-friendly stain, so I headed over to the website of the [Environmental Home Center](http://www.environmentalhomecenter.com/) and picked up some [OSMO Country Color](http://www.environmentalhomecenter.com/shop.mv?CatCode=PRODUCT&ProdCode=OS_COUNTRY_COLOR) in Nordic Red. EHC is an amazing resource for green building and home improvement products, and is a great example of the kind of business that leads the world towards greater sustainability.
Thus it was with special sadness that I read the news that EHC’s warehouse/store [burned down](http:////seattlepi.nwsource.com/local/185946_fire12.html) on Wednesday night. This is a tragedy for the environmental community and the sustainable business community. My heart goes out to all of them, and I am looking forward to seeing them back in operation soon.
