Reader Comment Roundup

Ahhhhh, how we love when you all leave comments. In fact, that’s one of the main benefits of this site: the ability to work together as a community to become more sustainable. The more ideas we share, the more results we’ll see. Here are some of your great ideas from the past few weeks:

On Here’s Where You Get Local Shrimp, Daniel Bates says:

All the restaurants in McClellanville, SC serve fresh shrimp and seafood straight from the local docks. Anyone wanting to experience how good a 1-mile diet (food that’s traveled one mile from the market) can taste should stop in.

On Gee, New Diapers, Shane says:

We have used cloth diapers from day one. We use a combination of gDiapers and Fuzzy Buns. For the times that you have to use a disposable I recommend Seventh Generation brand diapers and are available at Whole Foods and Wild Oats. They use no bleach and they biodigrade faster than other disposables.

On Should Plastic Grocery Bags be Banned, Neal J. says:

Just saw that China banned merchants from distributing plastic bags for free today. Hopefully this makes a dent with over a billion consumers there and also it may lend a hand to grabbing the international attention that is needed for this issue and propel a legitimate movement of willing industrial countries.

On Should Plastic Grocery Bags be Banned, gracefornow says:

Even though I seem to have a hard time remembering to bring my paper bags or a canvas bag to the store, I feel like plastic groceries bags should be phased out. But how? Maybe there should be a “bag charge” tacked onto groceries bills. If I was charged a bag fee on my grocery bill, I might be more inclined to bring in my own bags.

On Celebrate a Bday with Less Waste, Julia says:

That’s great! We have done most of our kids’ b-day parties at home. We never buy disposable stuff normally, but we always have for b-day parties because it’s only once year. Last time I felt a little sick about it knowing that we had enough Moe’s cups and plastic plates, and it’s not that hard to wash them. So next time we’re going green on our birthdays too.

Thanks for visiting the site everyone, and keep those comments coming!
