Choosing the Lesser Evil

Categories: green living |

Today the indomitable and I went to the grocery store for the first time in a while. We decided to load up on salad fixins, and I was happy to discover the store brand organic greens were on sale, 2 for $5. However, they were packaged in plastic containers, which were a number 7 recyclable. The #7 is the most difficult plastic to reuse, and our local recycling center only takes #1 & #2. End result, I decided to go with the bagged non-organic spinach. You really have to question your manufacturer’s motive. I think it’s safe to say that they were trying to reach a market instead of saving the earth.
