Carrie was very well informed, open to questions, and I got some great information. I will be composting newspaper now that I know they use soy ink. I only wish more folks could have taken advantage of this as the group was small (but mighty!)
"If every U.S. citizen ate just one meal a week (any meal) composed of locally and organically raised meats and produce, we would reduce our country’s oil consumption by over 1.1 million barrels of oil every week. That’s not gallons, but barrels. Small changes in buying habits can make big differences. Becoming a less energy-dependent nation may just need to start with a good breakfast." -Steven Hopp "Oily Food"
