Hi Beth,


I was wondering, does your Farmer's Market run all year long? I recently moved from Phoenix AZ (where Farmer's markets have pretty much anything you could want all year around), to Salem MA. And, I've found that my Farmer's market not only stops selling fruit in November and December (doh) but actually closes altogether from Jan-Jun. I don't have a car, so I usually shop at the small grocer down the street rather than bus it to a Whole Foods. The problem is, all of their greens and much of their produce is in plastic. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

Hi Beth! Thanks for this great list. I work in climate change research and I'm always looking for ways to reduce my waste, but plastics can be so overwhelming. It;s helpful to a  list of ideas I wouldn't have thought of, and that have already been tested out. I wanted to offer one thing to add to your list in the kitty section. It's often really hard to find attractive looking cat scratchers in general, much less eco-friendly ones. So I was really excited when I found the sky scratcher on etsy. The designers use a central wooden post on which they stack floors of cardboard, without any adhesives or added chemicals. The floors can be replaced once they're worn out, which means only replacing those specific sections rather than the whole scratcher. Check it out here
