Another nice reason to frequent our local farmer’s market ( http://www.fourseasonsmarkets.com/ ) right here is Richardson is that one has the opportunity to “double dip” on the sustainability issue, working with vendors who allow their customer to return the packaging used to the point of purchase for an added discount.
I found two suppliers who offerred this program as an incentive, and I am sure there are probably more:

Category: Honey – Soaps/Candles

I makes me feel better that not all things need to be “disposed of”- that we can “re-purpose” too!
