QuotePretty amazing stuff. My parents came from farmers in Croatia, they have grown their own food until they came to this country in the late 50\'s. My mom still grows vegetables in her back yard, there is practically no lawn at all.Too bad kids in NYC are surrounded by concrete, guess they could do it on a smaller scale.I will show these links to my wife who is a 6th grade teacher, she will appreciate this greatly. Thanks for the info!
Quotep.s.Even parents using this information and packing healthy organic lunches instead of contributing to the problems associated with cafeteria foods and fast foods makes a difference. Your wife will probably like SnackTaxi too - re-usable sandwich and snack bags. Between these, unbleached wax paper bags, bio plastics and products sold at sites like Life Without Plastic, we can really make huge change in this way too http://www.snacktaxi.com/http://lifewithoutplastic.com/
QuoteMy wife absolutely hates plastic touching her food or drink! When I show her this I will have to shield myself! She would rather wash a glass or ceramic cup than drink from a plastic cup. Same with plastic plates, microwaving is an especially a big no-no.
Quotewhy will you have to shield yourself for showing her this?
QuoteWe\'ve joined a local CSA (community supported agriculture) farm for about 3 years in a row now. I love it.Here is the article I read that made me want to join. Read about the tomato.http://www.yogajournal.com/lifestyle/2106
QuoteBecause she always lecture\'s me on this exact issue-I\'m basically lazy and will drink from plastic throwaway cups, and will eat off coated paper plates just so I don\'t have to wash them. She, on the other hand, will do the extra work (putting glasses in the dishwasher). I work at home, so I\'m usually the one that cleans up when the kids go to school and she goes to work. Me and the dog, and he doesn\'t help cleanup after the tornado departs daily-lol.
QuoteAh, I see now, hehe!I\'m checking out the local CSA\'s Ella, thanks!I already shop every Sat. at the local Farmer\'s Market and I grocery shop at local stores that carry locally grown organic produce. My concern with CSA\'s is that I may wind up wasting and I can\'t stand waste!! At least with the stuff I select, I\'m certain it will be consumed in the household.I suppose Mrs. Egg wouldn\'t be interested in either SnackTaxi or Wrap-n-Mat due to the plastics that are in the products. That was the one thing that almost prevented me from buying SnackTaxi, but for the time being, the non-use of baggies wins the contest, and SnackTaxi won because it\'s produced here in the US.
QuoteWe live on eastern Long Island where there are many farms. My wife just informed me that although we attempt to buy produce from these farms, the difficulty is finding ones that grow organic, as most use pesticides. I understand the farmer\'s dilemma here, as bugs and weather can destroy a crop. Wonder if there is a list of organic farms in the area?Tough trade off on the snack taxi since you need a washable container. But at least with that solution you only use one bag. So Mrs. Egg says it wins over the throwaway bags. Recycled paper bags for the teens lunches, or $5 bills for lunch. By the way, congrats on post #500:)
