The January issue of Real Estate Magazine is out and about! This month's story is about Zero Waste--something extremely pithy to gnaw on. Even contemplating the idea of zero waste makes me more conscious of how totally ubiquitous plastic is. Trying to cut down on our personal garbage is a real project we can all give a go (even one baby step can be a start), but the more important part of this is understanding the critical need for reducing waste, and then making our voices heard by the companies that over-package and are so very UNconscious about what is filling up our landfills and creating gigantic gyres of garbage in our oceans. I estimate that Santa Rosa Costco puts out more plastic waste in one day than the whole of Fort Bragg does in a month. Same with McDonalds or Burger King.
But raising consciousness starts from the bottom, so here is a story to help us all make the first steps. I really love it. www.realestatemendocino.com, or get a copy everywhere you look! Post offices, Harvest, Purity, all Realty offices, most inns and motels, etc., etc.
