Meet Dominique....

 Did you just begin to sing the song in French made popular by the Singing Nun? That's okay, it happens often. Dominique is a Southern California native who works for the U.S. Green Building Council. This means she spends a good amount of time looking at sustainability through the lens of architecture and design. She also has a 'growing' interest in sustainable food and agriculture. She joined the blog team in hopes that we all can come together to create one incredibly tasty, local, sustainable, beautiful life.
Likes: discovering new small-batch artisan coffees, authors whose books you can't put down, and lipstick that stays on through all of these adventures.
Dislikes: Green labels that don't really mean anything.

 A Note: She also has a great sense of humor, which we think is an essential quality in a good (our) editor.

It's In The Bag/ Dominique's choice

 Ever get the urge to pinch the person in front of you in line at the grocery store for paying 10 cents for a paper bag? Ever want to pinch yourself for leaving your reusable bag in the car again? I have to think that you save about $25 per year by bringing your own bag.
 Waste Management donated these bags and I have handed out hundreds of them at various events. I must admit I've kept several for myself as well. So this is the my reusable bag, the one I am currently using.

Pros: Large, sturdy, numerous and..FREE
Cons: You have to remember to keep them in your car since they do not fold to fit in your bag, they are not the most attractive
