I can't tell you how happy it makes me when I read all the different ways people are leading the charge with coming up with smart solutions to lower their waste and begin living more sustainably. Whether it's small collectives making and sharing dishes with one another to make meal prep easier to manage or forming groups online to help one another find quality alternatives to single-use items. It's all working and we are moving the needle together! Public Goods and Services is excited to be a part of these conversations and we will continue to work hard to provide solutions for reducing waste.
Check out some of the shout-outs we've received for our shop and come join us in the movement!
