Ryan Erickson, our official Zero Waste mascot, holds a regular light-bulb that can’t be recycled! Next time, buy the energy efficient bulbs – they save energy AND they can be recycled, too! 

I started reducing the waste that my household purchases and produces as a new year’s resolution for 2017…some things are easy, like recycling and composting more, and some things are definitely not as easy as I had hoped – like giving up our favorite brand of pre-packaged organic blue chips, and finding the extra cash to buy bulk foods (for which we have to go to to a different market as our regular neighborhood store doesn’t offer bulk foods). And speaking of money, we still rely on our local food pantry once a month…where nearly everything is prepackaged!

How to live simply and sustainably…and in the real world?
