BEST WAY TO GET ON MOTHER NA­TURE’S GOOD SIDE

The Georgia Straight - - Best Of Vancouver -

Sure, re­cy­cling and com­post­ing are cool, but those du­ties are child’s play in the grand scheme of our rapidly de­te­ri­o­rat­ing en­vi­ron­ment. To re­ally get into Mother Earth’s good books, try re­duc­ing your con­sump­tion of sin­gle-use plas­tics—a task that’s been made a lit­tle easier for Van­cou­verites thanks to the open­ing of Nada along with the Soap Dis­pen­sary & Kitchen Sta­ples, two pack­ag­ing-free gro­cers that are com­mit­ted to zero waste. The launch of ini­tia­tives like Soap­stand, a vend­ing ma­chine of­fer­ing re­fills on house­hold soaps and clean­ers, also gives cit­i­zens one less ex­cuse to cling to the dis­pos­able stuff.
