I'm flyin' high today! I heard through the grapevine that the gym I wrote the letter to (see my Dec. 16 '07 post) regarding their use of toxic chemicals in their gym has decided to "go green"! Supposedly they are in the process of researching non-toxic cleaning products and tanning lotions and air fresheners... all due to my letter! Talk about victory! Damian exclaimed, "Way to be an activist, Mom!" I wasn't thinking of myself as an activist. I was only trying to get what I wanted, which was a pleasant gym to work out in that didn't smell like a beauty shop. But, it's really gratifying to think that getting what I want will improve the lives of others, as well.
