Noteworthy Green: Shower Curtain Bags, Ice Cream Food Porn, Bye Bye Triclosan, and More...

>> Wednesday, July 29, 2009

Check out my post this week at The Green Phone Booth: It's in the Bag.

A few months ago on my personal blog, I wrote about how I was starting to use the bulk bins at Whole Foods, but I needed to get some cloth bags for them. A reader commented that she had made her own bags out of an old shower curtain. Brilliant! It just so happened that I had an old shower curtain lying around.

So the next time I visited my mom (who is a sewer extraordinaire and also happens to own a sewing machine, which I do not), I whipped up some cloth produce bags. The finished product is sheer, lightweight, completely free, and oh so adorable.
And elsewhere on the Internet:

::Michael Pollan talks with Lynne at The Splendid Table about how to lower the costs of healthy food. (Pollan may be last year's slow foodie, but he still has plenty of great things to say.) has twelve fabulous ice cream recipes. Talk about some food porn...

::Grist discusses the controversy surrounding Chipotle, Food Inc, and tomato farmers.

::Lou Bendrick at Grist tells us why we should "flee triclosan, leaving nothing behind but a screech, a cloud of dust, and skid marks."
