1 “Tips of the Trade” and “Food News”
If only you knew the effects of the Trash and the Impact of Food Service.
Each year Americans still throw away 25 billion Styrofoam cups and that many to-go containers. 500 years from now, the Styrofoam will still be in a landfill.
This number does not count the questionable compostable cups and to-go containers. Americans spend 10% of their disposable income on fast food every year! That is a lot of to-go cups and containers.

At the Fresh Sourdough Express we have continued to do our best to help be part of the solution. In 32 years of being in business we have never used Styrofoam, we continue to recycle whatever possible and compost all our scraps with local farmers.
We encourage you to bring your own cup and to-go containers whenever you go out to eat.

Getting local food in Alaska in the winters is challenging to say the least. To prepare for winter, using local farmers produce, we made fermented Sauerkraut and pickles. Most of the ginger, turmeric and avocados come from our organic farm in Hawaii which we bring back when we come to visit.

Did you know we have a commercial juicer and now offer a variety of organic juices?

Thanks for taking the time to read our first monthly Newsletter. Just a little reminder to make healthier choices for you and the planet. Say no too, to-go containers, and strive to add more vegetables in your diet are a plus for the planet and your health.

We appreciate you!

Gratitude to those who have started to bring their own cups and to-go containers.
