Eye Spy Some Sustainability!

milk delivery on my street
Wow, I had to stop in my tracks the other morning as I stepped out my door to head to work. What is this?! Someone is getting milk delivered to their door? While I do think it’s a pretty awesome sight to see I have to note that I have some issues with the company of choice. There are generally pros and cons to everything but these cons are a little to much for me. Still I applaud a neighbor for getting fresh milk delivered in a glass container.

But, what really made my day was when I saw a co-worker in the break room bring in a plastic container of strawberries, slice them, wash out the container, wrap the discarded tops in a bit of paper towel and place them back into the container, I could only imagine to take it all home and place the plastic into recycling and the tops into his compost pile. I was so impressed!

And it doesn’t stop there. As I was walking back to my desk I couldn’t help but notice that there were 7 bikes parked in our allotted office parking space. Usually, I might see 3 or 4 but I don’t think I’ve ever seen 7. Is it bike to work week? Just so you know, I take public transportation (I’m currently bikeless and bummed).

Wouldn’t it be awesome if I could do a post like this every week? It seems I so rarely see these sorts of practices, it’s most often quite the opposite.
