  • Slideshow of retail items with the short text lines below describing how these items will help you reduce your environmental impact.
  • Silverware set – The average Minnesotan produces 6lbs. of waste each day, that equals 2, 000lbs. per year! Reuse your utensils.
  • Tote bag – The average American uses 750 plastic bags each year, by using a sturdy long-lasting reusable bag you can eliminate this waste.
  • Kitchen counter compost bucket – 15% of our garbage is actually compostable! Compost your kitchen food scraps to create nutrient-rich gardening soil.

To shop our green retail, stop by our resource center during staffed hours or purchase our green retail items online . Tips for a Low Waste Lunch
  • Get rid of disposables! Use glass storage containers, fabric sandwich bags, a metal or glass water bottle, cloth napkins, and real utensils.
  • Keep a plate, bowl, cup, and silverware in your desk. They’ll come in handy for potlucks and work celebrations.
  • Avoid individually packaged single serve products. By bulk amounts of your favorite lunch foods and pack them in reusable containers each day.
