  •  Here's to smaller trash bins! (11+ / 0-)

    I'm proud of you for being ready to let go of the garbage bin idea. Once you do, it's gonna be hard to look kitchen trash bins the same way ever again. I long for the day when stores like Bed, Bath & Beyond need to re-market the plethora of really expensive "garbage" (a.k.a. landfill) cans as "recycling" cans.

    Just saying no to packaged food (convenient, yes, for busy moms and dads) is one place where we can all save money and waste that in most places is destined for the landfill.

    And speaking of Whole Foods and their CEO, have you heard about his new book, "Conscious Capitalism"? I nearly choked when I saw the poster announcing the book signing at one of the nearby stores. It's ironic that he's touting this as a new "movement," when he's truly only a double-bottom line and not a true triple-bottom line kind of guy. Of the three p's – people, profit, and planet – he misses the boat on the first, so really, how conscious does he think he is?

    We'll have to hit up a farmers market together someday...

    Enjoy being grouchy. It can be fun ; )

    change is inevitable. growth is optional.
