Description

Learn to shop choosing less wasteful plastic and packaging, and move towards Zero Waste Marin goals.

Free worskop at Good Earth Natural Foods in Mill Valley the first Tuesday of every month at 10:00 AM. Approximately 1 1/2 hours

Good Earth Natural Foods is an ideal place to buy the healthiest food available with the least wasteful packaging. Please join me while we walk through all of the departments of the store and learn how to move towards a non-disposable life from Farm to Waste Stream. Here are a few of the topics we will discuss while touring the store.

  • learn how to manage your waststream.
  • The variety of options for buying food in less packaging including buying in bulk.

  • What “tare” weight is and the simple steps to use your own containers, cloth bags and jars to purchase food.

  • How to organize your kitchen and properly store food once you bring it home.

  • Why recycling plastic is not the answer and understanding how our waste
    stream/resources works is essential in moving towards a zero waste society.

  • How to manage our personal food waste and ways to avoid it, 1/3 of grocierys that are purchased are never eaten and end up in our waste stream.

  • Why these practices also save you food dollars.
