Living with less waste is vital to us at Wonder. We want to infuse the everyday with the "best of" essentials—from produce that supports integrative ecosystems to products crafted by hand. In the spirit of reducing waste in our own lives, we designed a "trash-light toolkit" that will help you cut back on trash wherever you go. Here's what's in our (reusable) tote:
1: REUSABLE WATER BOTTLE
There's a a good reason that we use glass bottles at Wonder: plastic sucks. Especially single-use plastic bottles that can clog up waterways and release toxic chemicals. Opt instead for a durable stainless steel water bottle (we love S'well) that will keep cold drinks cold and warm drinks warm no matter where you trek off to.
2: STAINLESS STEEL STRAW
Plastic straws are a sneaky source of waste. Consider the stainless steel straw a sleek, reusable alternative for sipping juice lakeside.
3: BAMBOO SPORK
Disposable cutlery is a major drag. For when you're on the go, grab a spork that's perfect for everything from picnics at Chautauqua Park to digging into take-out en route to the Rockies. Nothing but bright, blue skies and waste-free adventures ahead!
4: CLOTH NAPKIN
Cloth napkins are a great replacement for paper napkins and single-use tissues. We especially love a sturdy organic cotton-canvas blend.
5: GLASS JAR
No need for Tupperware! Use a mason jar or Le Parfait canister (you can find a bevy of options both online and in your local thrift store) to keep snacks safe and sound.
6: LINEAGE SEEDS
We're in love with Lineage Seeds at Wonder (check out our counter selection to learn more). Lineage Seeds produces climate-change tolerant heritage seeds designed to encourage a culture of gardening and environmental accountability. The more we work to collectively cultivate plant diversity, the more we fortify our soils.
That, and the sweetest summer gift you can give to yourself (and others!) is fresh herbs plucked from your windowsill garden. Heaven.
This particular juice is our beloved "Golden Apple" blend. An apple-lemon twist infused with a turmeric tea, "Golden Apple" is perfect for reducing inflammation after a hot day in the sun. As always, hold onto our glass bottles! We provide a fifty-cent bottle deposit for every bottle you turn in. So drink up!
Happy waste-free living Wonder customers! We'll continue to do our very best to provide you wholesome food and drink that supports sustainable living and nourishes our wild, wonderful world.
