Apple Cookbook Choices – With or Without?

PinExt Apple Cookbook Choices   With or Without?

One of our cookbooks, From the Apple Orchard – Recipes for Apple Lovers, sold out in the plastic spiral binding format.  We only have the non-spiral cookbooks left in that title. So today we ordered a bunch with the spirals. Some of our customers have ordered the non-spirals in the past – they are a little cheaper – but most really prefer the cookbook to stay open and order the spiral ones.9780930643225 e1276203888916 Apple Cookbook Choices   With or Without?From the Apple 150px Apple Cookbook Choices   With or Without?

What are your preferences? Would you buy a cookbook without the spiral if it were $2.00 cheaper? $3? $4? $5?? Your input will help us with further print runs. Thanks!

Some of you may be saying, “I’m just a kid. What can I do?” Big or small, doing everything to save the earth and the air we breathe is everybody’s business and responsibility.

When you come home from the grocery store, do you end up with lots of plastic bags and extra packaging? Where will those plastic bags end up? You’re right. They are going back to the garbage heap where they will take hundreds of years, if not more, to break down. Or, they may fly around outside, being scattered by the wind. Birds can try to peck at them or might even get caught in them. Plus they make our world look dumpy and trashy.

So, what can you do about it?

You can take the plastic bags that have accumalated and take them to a neighboring recyling center. Hopefully, they will be made into some useful products. Then, next time shopping time comes, to remember to take the grocery tote bag (or bags) with you. Think how many plastic bags this will eliminate!

Individual snack packs are certainly handy. But it doesn’t take much time to make your own snack packs. Pour a quantity of food, whether it is crackers, chips, cookies, or whatever, into reusuable containers for the lunchbox or car.

In addition, buying food in quantity saves money. However, buying in larger quantity is only good if you know you’ll use it.

Throw out the plastic water bottles. If you want to take water with you, use a thermos bottle or other non-plastic container.

If you wash dishes by hand, run hot water into a clean sink to rinse them. This way you won’t be running the water all the time. If you use the dish washer to wash dishes, wait to run it until it is full of dirty dishes. This saves on water and electricity.

When you think about it, it really isn’t so hard to make small steps that impact the world. Every little bit you do toward this cause helps to keep our environment cleaner and healthier.
