Reducing Our Footprint On The Earth…
In an effort to be as environmentally friendly as possible, we have made some exciting new changes.
1.) Our NEW Packaging: In the past, we’ve delivered the CSA shares in brown paper bags but we then had to package the just-rinsed produce in plastic bags to keep the water from ruining the bags. This summer we are going to use wax-covered cardboard boxes to eliminate the bags!
We ask that you please return the boxes when you pick up your next week’s produce, so that we can reuse them & continue to recycle them. OR you can bring your own bag to the pickup location & leave the box there with your pickup host.
2.) Our Newsletter: We’ve been wanting to do this for a while, but we weren’t able to until now. We will be phasing out the hard, paper copy of the newsletter as we will be posting it every week on this blog! This way you can still find out all the current happenings on the farm, know what your weekly share includes & still have the great recipes to help you use the great produce. (We will also supply some hard copies of the newsletter for those who do not have internet access.)
THANKS to everyone who encouraged us to reduce our environmental footprint with the paper & plastic ~ we look forward to hearing more suggestions from our CSA members!
