some ideas are good, others I am not so sure it is safe.

If you don't have a garden, there's no point to composting.

Driving extra miles to shop at a farmers market for organic produce is wasting gas and money. Many of us live in areas where there are no local farmers markets or stores that sell organic produce. The closest apple orchard is a 2-hour drive, and the closest store that sells organic produce is 50 miles away.

I use white vinegar and water to clean my tile floors. They end up cleaner - no film left from commercial cleaning products. Once the floor is dry, there's no vinegar odor. I also use vinegar instead of fabric softener in the laundry. Works great at softening clothes, and there is no perfume odor on my clothes, the just smell clean.

Used to compost when we lived in the country, but no more in a place in suburbia, not allowed. Buying organic doesn't save that much, it all depends on where you live. Outside of Dallas, organic food costs way too much, isn't REALLY Better, it's been proven nutrition is the same, buy vegetables at your usual store. Don't be a food snob!

I've had too many things living in or flying out of containers of food I've purchased in the bulk bins (even at the $$$ stores). I'll pay the extra and get the package.

CaroleCox - you can always reuse the bags. I keep clean bags in a zip lock bag to reuse for bulk items. When they finally wear out I recycle them, but not before. It's interesting to see how long some of them last!

Gnuattitude, I understand your concerns regarding things you would eat raw, like nuts, but things you are going to cook, like oats and pasta, wouldn't be a problem. Any germs transferred would be eliminated. So don't let that deter you!

I wonder how unsanitary the scoops in bulk food are. No thanks.
