Q: I’m trying to keep the thermostat turned down, and in winter it gets down to around 50 degrees in the bedroom at night. We need some serious warmth in the blankets! I’d like to get a huge, puffy, down comforter. Do any ethical or environmental problems surround real goose down?

Q: I’m looking for a sustainably harvested bunk bed for my 5-year-old son. When I search online, all I read about are “super low, unbeatable prices,” rather than the really important details, like whether it’s good for people or our planet. Do you have a list of businesses that carry sustainably harvested wooden furniture (including bunk beds)?
