Valentine's Day is Sweeter if it's Eco-Friendly

You Don't Bring Me Flowers - No, Really, Don't!

All the world loves a lover. As we approach Valentine's Day, many of us are looking for that perfect symbol of our love - a gift for our beloved.

But the environmentally aware Juliet or Romeo, know that the tons of greeting cards, cut-flower arrangements, and heart-shaped chocolate boxes delivered on February 14th add up to a huge carbon footprint. Wherefore art there not a greener way to celebrate our love? This year, point Cupid's arrow in a more eco-friendly direction.

Celebrating Presidents' Day

 Thank You Presidents!
Presidents' Day is near, and this national holiday marks a time where Americans can give thanks to the brave individuals who have led our country to be what it is today. A leader of innovation and a melting pot of diverse cultures and heritages from around the world, the United States is indeed the land of opportunity. 

The United States is helping to lead the global efforts to address climate change. 

On December 12, 2015, world leaders secured an agreement to combat global warming.

Meet Deep Green Champion

A Commitment to Organic Foods, Local Communities, and Sustainability

All of their produce is certified organic and a huge portion is locally grown making it possible for shoppers to support local farmers. Their meat and poultry department is also all natural and is sourced from reputable producers such as Oakland's Niman Ranch Pork and Atkins Ranch Lamb, Country Natural Beef, and Mary's Organic Chicken

An advocate of sustainability, The Natural Grocery Company works with FishWise, a sustainable seafood consultancy to ensure any fresh fish or seafood received are caught through environmentally responsible practices. As a Deep Green Champion, they are proudly reducing the demand for fossil fuels by contributing 100% renewable energy into the power grid. 

Understanding Soil to
Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Carbon Farming to Combat Climate Change

The Marin Carbon Project is a consortium of the leading agricultural institutions and producers in Marin County, university researchers, county and federal agencies, and non-profit organizations seeking to understand and demonstrate the potential of enhanced carbon sequestration in Marin's agricultural and rangelands soils. 

Their vision is for landowners and land managers of agricultural ecosystems to serve as stewards of soil health and to undertake carbon farming in a manner that can improve on-farm productivity and viability, enhance ecosystem functions, and stop and reverse climate change.
