Michael Meyer, Vice President of Donated Goods Retail and Marketing at Goodwill Industries International
Thrift shopping is not only a choice that is healthy for the planet but it’s also an answer to the consumerism that has pushed Americans’ spending habits to the max. It has also taken its toll on the nation’s resources and financial stability. Judith and Michael will help raise our awareness about the positive aspects of second-hand shopping and discuss the benefits of donating, including shrinking landfills, reducing clutter and actually boosting the economy. Given that the fashion industry is one of the major sources of pollution globally, it begs the question – is there a downside to thrifting? Let’s all learn why it matters to all of us! This show made possible due to the generous support of Goodwill Industries of Southern Arizona.

This installment of The Forbidden Fruit will discuss the world problem of single use plastics with Bag Monster Andy Keller.
In 2004, Andy Keller, now ChicoBag president, took a trip to his local landfill after spending the day landscaping his backyard. He was horrified by what he saw. Single-use bags were visually the dominant article at the landfill that day, blanketing the landscape in a thin mix of white and beige plastic. On his way home he began to notice plastic bags everywhere, caught in trees and on fence posts, half drowned in gutter puddles and blowing in the streets like urban tumbleweeds.
That day Andy vowed to stop using single-use bags. Inspired, Andy dropped a few bucks on a second hand sewing machine and began sewing what would ultimately become the first ChicoBag® brand reusable bag.
We won't to shed as much light on this cause as possible. We're talking plastics here on The Fruit today. Join us!

These measures allow us to provide one of the lowest costs for waste removal in the region. We are working to help reduce filling up our landfills with materials that cannot breakdown over years but sit in the landfills and is a danger to the environment. The environmental impact of landfills is a complex issue. Recycling helps prevent landfills from becoming overfilled, which lessen the danger of environment report of global warming. A surge in new curbside programs, with the steady performance of local collection services, and a rise in the capture of core household materials such as paper and containers are all key factors in the reduction of disposed tonnage.

Our mission is to provide the best innovative reusable/recyclable products on the planet. Our partnership continues throughout the life cycle of our products. You determine when your BELL reaches the end of its life usage and we will take it back for free for secure recycling. In turn we will offer future discount incentives on purchases as part of our partnership.
One of our biggest concerns driving us to get this project off the ground is the amount of plastic bottle waste that is being produced by the onetime usage of disposable plastic water and soda bottles. Over 60,000,000 plastic bottles are entering our landfills every day, a staggering statistic. This is something that should be unacceptable to all of us and is not sustainable for the future of our planet.
Strategies of Success
Brian A Cohen Host
That's not pretty, is it? You don't need to see this picture in great detail to really see that the continuous stream of garbage dumped into landfills all over our world are not ever going to break down and go peacefully back into Mother Nature's bosom
This is just one truck dumping it's collection on top of millions of tons of the same variety of materials. On Earth day, we could talk about all the ways human population growth and modern agricultural and industrial practices are poisoning our air and water, wiping out species and destroying pristine, delicate habitats for millions of species. But instead, we're going to talk about what YOU can do to stop the madness.
Whereas last week, we spoke about the Collective Consciousness and how we contribute to the vibration that affects all sentient beings, this week, we're going to talk about how our daily habits, our preferences and our decisions affect the community, and the wider planet.
Let's Honor Mother Earth by waking up to the very simple fact that we cannot continue certain activities and expect the earth to remain unchanged. The good news is that Earth will survive. She will heal. The bad news is that we, along with many other species, will not. Please join us to begin a conversation that hopefully takes us into a new way of thinking about what is possible for humanity and this planet.
Please join the conversation Wednesday from 7pm to 8pm.
