    Stopped by the Larimer County Farmers Market today. It was my first time despite living like 3 blocks away! Got myself some fresh cherry tomatoes, pears, multi-grain bread, and an almond  bearclaw. I'm going to make it a point to go more often!

    After the feedback from the #PlasticHunt during Earth Day, our CREWS folks have finally decided to move to non-plastic coffee stirrers. The new wooden stirrers will be rolled out next week!

      Good times (and, "it's about time!") -- I like the part about skipping the stick and just letting gravity work for you :)

    Bought a carbon offset for my upcoming flight to New York. United makes it easy for you to pay with miles. https://www.united.com/web/en-US/content/company/globalcitizenship/environment/carbon-offset-program.aspx. Appeases my guilt of flying!
