I made an impulse purchase a couple of weeks ago at Whole Foods. I bought a bottle of six dollar yogurt. (This is why people call it Whole Paycheck!) I don’t know why I bought it, I can’t really remember — but I think it had something to do with the magical words “whole milk yogurt.” if you’re not familiar, it’s like ice cream. yogurty yummy ice cream.
Jenn touched on the yogurt container issue a while ago, but I hadn’t seen any yogurt in a glass bottle before. So, there’s another reason why I had to buy it!
I was also intrigued by the fact that the yogurt was award winning and that it is made from “organic grassfred creamline milk.” The source is Traders Point Creamery – located in Zionsville IN. As I hefted the bottle into my shopping bag I thought to myself: oh, man. there’s probably a LOT of transportation costs associated with bringing me this tasty tasty yogurt. This is Heavy. On the other hand, the glass is recyclable. From their webpage:
What do I do with the empty milk bottles?
Our bottles are made of a high quality glass, and we hope to one day have a bottle return program. However, for now, we encourage you to re-use them for storage of dry goods, as a vase, iced tea bottle, or any other unique use you can come up with. We’d love to add new ideas to our site, please share your re-use ideas with us: firstname.lastname@example.org
I would love to see some of the reuse ideas!
So, I cracked open the yogurt and poured some out as soon as I got home. this stuff was good smelling. The crazy thing was that upon my first mouthful, I had to check the bottle to see if there was sugar added. This yogurt is so sweet and mild! It was delicious, and very difficult to not drink it all straight away.
here’s a video about traders point organic creamery. Super delicious!! if the price tag doesn’t break your books, I would say by all means, give this great tasting stuff a chance.
What’s your most extravagant green purchase?
