Please thank Alisa and Norman for the heads up about the change in the Co-op’s plastics policies. For years, I have been continually recycling the clear round plastic take-out containers the Co-op now uses to freeze single and double servings of various foods and store both non-perishable and non-food items here at home until the containers become damaged or cracked and I am forced to recycle them. The clear dip containers can also be put into china bowls for serving at the table. Now, I will be extra careful with the clear containers I still have, knowing that you will soon discontinue using them in favor of ugly orange containers, which I will surely add to the recycling stream as soon as I have emptied them.
