I’m a little behind on my news, apparently, but I caught this article from last week describing Seattle City Council member Bruce Harrell’s proposal to help small businesses offset the cost of changing to compostable take-out ware. His plan: start a buyers’ co-op to leverage the collective buying power of all the affected businesses.
WHY I LOVE THIS: Not only is it environmentally friendly AND business friendly, it increases cooperation and collaboration in the process. Way to go, Bruce.
