Generate Less Waste This Holiday SeasonThanksgiving, while fun, is a holiday that generates a large amount of waste. From carbon emissions produced during the packaging and shipping of food, to un-bought food that is thrown out by grocery stores, to the leftovers thrown out by each household, we need to find ways to celebrate Thanksgiving sustainably. Here is a useful infographic with hard truths, and ways to help cut down on holiday waste.

Get Berkeley Bowl to use Compostable Bulk Bags!
We all know plastic is terrible for the environment, especially plastic bags. This flimsy material is the least recyclable of any plastic and kills 100,000 marine animals every year. One easy switch grocery stores can make is adopting the use of compostable bags instead of plastic bags for loose produce. In order to make change on a larger scale, we need to start locally, and that means holding local businesses accountable for their plastic consumption. Making this switch for Berkeley Bowl would not be any more inconvenient for consumers nor would it be more expensive, but it would be hugely beneficial for the environment.
