It's important to remember that no matter how good our intentions are, we can't do everything at once. I have been taking baby steps. I'll start listing so of the changes we made here. Some, like getting your meat wrapped in paper instead of on Styrofoam trays) are easy others take some effort. My thinking is that the important thing is to be moving forward.
Permaculture thought for the day: consider buying dry goods in bulk and storing then in glass containers to reduce what you send to the land fill. I buy pickles at win-co in 1/2 jars that I saved and reuse. I also asked a local restaurant to save the gallon jars that mayo and dressing come in. We are big pickle eaters so I saved 20 jars this year plus another 15 from friends and neighbors. I have lots of gallon jars too.I try to avoid plastic but we do have a few 5 gallon buckets for flour since with six of us we bake lots of bread.
I keep a list on my phone when we are running low and buy for a month or so at a time. The bulk food is much cheaper (sugar was 32 cents a pound) and even regular grocery stores have many organic choices.
