I keep forgetting to post that front Door Organic is the best company I’ve ever dealt with. They wrote me back a really nice letter after I explained that I had to cancel their services in order to live garbage free.Today I found real gum-it’s biodegradable-it’s really made from natural gum and it’s in a recycled, recyclable cardboard box! It’s called Glee Gum and I got it from Grassroots. The ingredients are cane sugar, glucose, and gum base made from natural chicel, rice syrup, cinnamon, red beet colour, resinous glaze, beeswax and carnauba wax.
I made some “cards” today and left them at Grassroots. I’m going to make some more to carry with me.
I also found the toothbrushes I like made out of corn. I’ll post more about that in the bathroom post I’m working on.Thank you again to everyone who expressed interest in this project. I’m so excited-I might be on a talk show and there may be a no garbage documentary coming your way! Eeeeek! Many people have asked me to refer them to a book of resources. If you are in
Toronto “Green Toronto” is pretty good. There is no all encompassing resource though- I collect information from a variety of sources and I learn as I go. If you are interested in helping to write a “live trash free” book, let me know!
