Recyclable spinach bag

The greener or more colorful the veggie, the more nutrients. I gave up iceberg lettuce years ago in favor of dark green spinach. But it isn’t always in season and I can’t always find it in bundles in the store to place in my own mesh bag.

Second to eating in season (which only makes sense and is more environmentally friendly), I found a recycle sign on the back of the spinach bag. If a company is going to take the time to place a product in something I can recycle, I’m more likely to purchase that product.

Kudos to companies for coming around. Maybe they are starting to get it….after all. πŸ™‚

I see signs of hope.

Do you?

  1. I tried to grow my own spinach this year – the perfect zero waste plan. But with spring coming late, then the sudden heat wave, they bolted immediately after coming up. 100% (compostable) waste in this case. Back to bagged spinach (the only way we can buy it here) for me. At least we can recycle the bags.

  2. I hear you Heidi. Spinach is not an easy one to grow. We lost ours due to cold temps. during the last garden trial….next year we’ll try again! We’ll get it! πŸ™‚
    At least the compost is well fed. πŸ™‚

Tell me what you think. I don't get to answer comments like I did before baby but I read every single comment. And they really make my day!
