     I was very happy to find cherry tomatoes at Trader Joe’s packaged in cardboard!

    Last week on an MPR show called Planet Money ( Sat. at 7:00) featured a piece on plastic and how we've been mislead about how it is recycled. Or ISN'T recycled. Check it out. Jan. 23rd broadcast.

      I watched the documentary "Plastic Wars" which talked about the same thing. Maddening. All the more reason to lean on the 'Reduce/Refuse' part of all of this :/
