How ironic that we’re talking about this chapter while I’m on a plane flying back to Virginia from a marketing conference in Mississippi. Perhaps you are getting ready to go away for the Thanksgiving holidays to see family.
In this chapter, Joel offers an alternative to the highly packaged, wasteful, plastic airplane meal. Do you think his suggestion of soup and cookies would work?
Or is it just too weird?(Like the nudist Buddhist)
In your opinion, what would be the number one way we could reduce waste in packaging in our food system?
Let’s think about this for a moment. Picture it.
Packaging that decomposed. Suddenly there would be no need for land fills. No trash along the side of the highways. Can you imagine it?
Instead of tin cans for canned foods, we’d use reusable Mason jars. Every family would have a root cellar and a kitchen garden out their back door.
Do you think this is possible?
What else do you want to talk about that was discussed in this chapter?
What change in your life can you implement in your family today? What one thing will you do this week to make a difference?
