So what are the options? Well, what about trying this:
http://www.snacktaxi.com/) are a good option, as well as using recyclable plastic containers for dry goods (get a thermos if you're packing anything hot,like soup).
1/3 c loose green tea
1 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. cloves
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. cardamom
Mix the ingredients together. If using K-cup reusable filter, put 1 TBSP into the filter, store the remainder in an airtight (glass!) container. I like to add rice or soy milk to my brewed cup, but that's just me. Enjoy!
Choose a shady spot. Put down your green compost (coffee grounds, fruit and veggie waste, grass clippings). Now add your browns (twigs, branches, etc.). Now add a little water to moisten. Keep doing this. Keep a shovel or pitchfork nearby to mix things up every once in a while and make sure to keep it moist. Your compost will be ready in a few months. Note: don't let your pile get too large or get too much sun.
Now this is rudimentary composting, at best, but it will work (according to the EPA website) and so I'm going to give it a shot.
Finally the styrofoam meat tray. The solution to this one is easy: get your meat from the meat counter instead of what's already been packaged and put on the shelf. You'll get exactly the amount you want, the cut you want, it's fresher, and it will be wrapped in recyclable paper, not stored in styrofoam.
See how easy it is to be Green? (And think how unbearably smug I can be once I have accomplished all this Greenness!)
