Take-Out Good & Eco-Fail
Yesterday we were in NY City and needed to eat. We were near a health food store that was about as organic and concerned for the environment as you’ll find. They also offered hot food, salads, fruit and vegetable smoothies, etc. They didn’t have a place to sit down to eat, so we had to take our food out, find a nearby park, and eat outside. What a pleasure! However, the hot food and drinks were in hard plastic containers, the forks were plastic, and the bags were plastic. The three of us ended up with a plastic bag full of waste that took up more than half a cubic foot of space in the public trash can in the park! Eco-Fail!
