As seen at Naturally Boulder Days conference, Millenium Hotel, 2009.
I go to a lot of eco-responsibility-minded conferences and events—and at every one I leave with a “recyclable” (but god knows how) plastic tote bag full of samples wrapped in plastic-is-forever wrappers. Par example, yesterday, I was at a panel with four leading LOHAS/green/natural products tycoons. How many plastic bottles were on their table? Ten, give or take a few.
At least at Naturally Boulder Days, yesterday, Simply Boulder gave out full glass bottles of their delectable sauces, instead of (like most companies) little packets of promotional swag, er, near-future-landfill waste.
