Happy Earth Day! Normally we’d encourage everyone to go out, plant a tree or some flowers, and enjoy spending time outside. Instead, this year let’s bring the Earth inside with us. Here are a few ways to support the environment without going outside.
Written by Bevi. Located in Charlestown, Bevi is disrupting the beverage supply chain by using intuitive, user-centered design to provide customizable, healthy beverages. The Bevi is an internet-connected smart water cooler that dispenses water still or sparkling, plain or flavored. Each drink is customizable, and the machine holds up to four distinct flavors. So next time you are looking to hydrate, ditch the plastic bottle and get a Bevi for your office or commercial space.
There’s no denying that most everything has sped up in recent years.
While we are more connected than ever, there is now a premium on slowing down and engaging with the world around us. Citizens and consumers might have more readily-available information through phones and tablets, but those devices can create personally-curated bubbles blocking us out from our own shared spaces.
What if we could slow down the process and take in our surroundings in a new way?
Food waste is a HUGE problem in the United States. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Loss Project, we throw away 30-40 percent of all the food we produce for domestic sale and consumption.
We know you value organic produce for the benefits it has both on your health and the environment. But as a busy Bostononian, you might not have time to visit the source -- the farms. At Boston Organics, we also value transparency in the supply chain and make sure that the food you eat comes from truly sustainable operations.
Every season we like to visit growers that are a part of our network. Not only does this help maintain our strong working relationships, but it also gives us an opportunity to ask questions and see how they continue to make positive changes on their farms.
Earlier this summer, we sent a few members of the Boston Organics Crew to western Massachusetts for a few of these visits. Here’s how our day went.

Every year we team up with our friends and neighbors, Bootstrap Compost, to encourage the people of Boston to take the next step towards living more sustainably.
Every so often, it's important to take a step back and consider the effect that your actions have on the world around you. The coming year promises to be an exciting ride, but as we buckle up for 2014, we wanted to reflect on 2013 and the impact that our work has on the environment and our community.
