This week the trash crate looks a little better than the last couple. I made an effort to reduce the landfill trash pieces by focusing on buying produce without plastic tags or ties. I decided to break the habit of buying organic kale from the grocery store, which usually comes bundled with a plastic twist tie and a plastic brand tag. This week I bought organic bok choy and red leaf lettuce from the grocery store without making any trash. Then I picked up some trash-free organic kale and mustard greens at the farmers’ market. Sometimes solving a trash problem leads me to unexpected benefits––like experiencing a greater variety of leafy greens.
I still came home with some produce stickers… and canned cat food.
