Monroe Organic Farms 

  • A community supported agricultural farm

  • Family owned and operated

  • Located in Kersey, CO

 

Natural Grocers aka Vitamin Cottage 

  • Only sells 100% organic produce

  • Screens products to make sure they are not tested on animals, do not contain harmful chemicals, and are ethically sourced.

  • Animal products come from pasture raised, cage free animals

  • Household products are eco-friendly

 

Ridwell

  • Regularly collects plastic film, multi-layer plastic, light bulbs, batteries, fabric/shoes/textiles, and rotating featured categories such as electronics, kitchenware, holiday décor, etc.

  • Add-on collection (for a fee) of styrofoam, latex paint, and fluorescent light bulbs

  • Approx $40/month (varies by subscription)

 

Compost Colorado

  • Community drop off ($5/week) or curbside pickup ($10/week) of compostable waste

  • Can also pick up yard waste ($10 per bag)

  • Annual dividend of free compost

 

Sedalia Landfill (5970 N US Highway 85, Sedalia CO 80135)

  • Will accept recyclable waste (paper, glass, aluminum) for FREE

 

Terracycle

  • Can recycle almost anything

  • Free recycling programs for certain brands/products

  • Collect recyclables, then mail them to Terracycle in a purchased box with the provided UPS mailing label (drop off at UPS store).

  • I only use it for items I can’t avoid or recycle another way.

 

Who Gives A Crap 

  • Bamboo and/or recycled paper products

  • 50% of profits go to clean water & sanitation non-profit organizations

                  

Refillary 

  • Located at 19501 E Parker Square Dr, Parker CO 80134

  • Household and personal care products in refillable containers

 

Products I like:

  • Hi Bar shampoo and conditioner

  • Pacha bar soap

  • Naturally Fresh compostable cat litter (flush the clumps before composting)

  • HoldOn compostable trash bags

  • Seventh Generation dishwasher soap

  • Ever Spring laundry detergent sheets
