Plastic-Free Birthday

It’s my birthday! So how will I celebrate?

Mixt Greens RestaurantWell, first with a birthday lunch at work. Group lunches at the office are always challenging because of the packaging associated with take-out food. But fortunately, there’s a new lunch place in San Francisco I’ve been dying to try: Mixt Greens.

Mixt Greens is certified green under the Bay Area Green Business program. Their food is organic. Their packaging is compostable. And even the restaurant itself is constructed to green standards.

Next? We’ll see . Karaoke this weekend? A movie? A walk on the beach? I haven’t decided yet. Hoping to get together with Ruchi, aka Arduous, and hang out some.

I think I probably won’t blog again until next week. So cheers. Thanks for all your support. And keep away from plastic this weekend. :-)

Happy birthday, Beth! Thanks for being so inspiring and remaining so committed to a plastic-free ocean! Soon I will try another week without plastic and blog about it again.
I hope you’ll blog about Wear Blue for Oceans Day next week, January 13th. NRDC and a host of other conservation orgs are encouraging people to wear blue, share their photos and change their profile pics on January 13.
Thanks and enjoy a wonderful birthday!

Happy Birthday, Beth! Whatever you do – celebrate yourself.


Happy Birthday! Today I tossed a bin full of plastic water bottles, cups and sippy cups. It’s just the beginning of my journey, but the purge feels so good!! =)


Happy Birthday from another green Capricorn! Thanks for all the great posts.
