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. 🙂
I see signs of hope.
