320: Confronting doof

I got a taste of what I believe leads people to tell me they can’t avoid packaging or buying fresh, local produce.

Living in a semi-rural area led me to shop in a large supermarket for the first time in a year or two. They carried only doof and stuff shipped from across the country and world.

I share the story and the uplifting results.

Here are the notes I read from:

  • When I talk about taking over a year to fill a load of trash, people often say “You can but I can’t.”
  • I’m staying outside the city and shopped with my stepfather in a supermarket for the first time in at least a year
  • Onions
  • Everything packaged, almost nothing loose
  • Produce out of season, can’t tell from where
  • Pears from Argentina
  • Bulk food section
  • All doof
  • Realized why people say they can’t do it
  • But I don’t accept
  • Plan to talk to manager about bulk foods
  • Researched farmers market
    • June start
    • Emailed people, they responded
    • Mom and stepfather knew one
    • Visited
    • Learned about Hub
    • Ordered Hub yesterday
  • Living by environmental values always leads to joy, community, connection
  • If you just accept what they offer, you’re bull with ring in nose
  • Result is obesity, dependence,
