3 Easy Ways to Go Green

Three local women share their tips for a greener new year.


U-Konserve offers a complete selection of waste-free food storage solutions that eliminate the single-use packaging associated with daily lunch packing, takeout, picnics, outdoor adventures, bulk grocery shopping and storing family leftovers.

Co-Owner Chance Claxton
Green Tip “Start small with waste-free living and build up: find a single-use product you can do without (plastic straws, plastic baggies, takeout containers, throwaway utensils, plastic wrap), find a reusable alternative and commit to reuse.”
Where to find Whole Foods, The Container Store, natural grocery stores, kitchen stores, boutiques, package-free stores and online. 



Wisdom Supply Co.

Wisdom Supply Co. makes a wide range of zero-waste products and systems solutions for classrooms, offices and homes.

Owner Heather Itzla
Green Tip “Pause before purchasing, and think: will this item become just another piece of forever-lasting garbage in a landfill or waterway?”
Where to find Online




Ambatalia designs and manufactures textile goods and offers daily essentials to support a non-disposable life. All the goods are package-free, thoughtfully designed and chosen for ease of use, lasting function and a timeless aesthetic.

Owner Molly de Vries
Green Tip “Change some daily habits in using single-use disposables. Bring your own coffee cup, water bottle, utensil and bags for shopping. And for more information about everything recyclable go to zerowastemarin.com.”
Where to find At the brick-and-mortar store in the Mill Valley Lumber Yard, at stores around the world and online.
