So, all the chitter chat about banana stickers reminded me to share the info for Sticker Man. Since I read about this upcycling artist about a year ago on Green LA Girl's blog, I've been saving all of our produce stickers in a little baggie on my kitchen shelves above my sink. You know how some things just go on autopilot? Well, I have little spots in my kitchen to save random stuff: eggshells for the garden, peels for my compost tumbler, bottle tops to bring in to Aveda (which I haven't tried yet, but am thrilled to hear they've started), Brita filters to
Anyways, I sent my stickers in and whaddya know? Produce Man sent me a postcard back! He got 'em! How cool is that? Way cooler than sifting through beautiful compost and seeing a bazillion plastic stickers, I'd say.
Also? I'd forgotten this info about produce sticker codes, and was delighted to see it posted recently at Healthy Child, Healthy World:
Three easy rules to remember:
1. Organic produce always starts with the number 9.
2. Conventionally Grown produce always starts with a 3 or a 4.
3. Genetically Modified produce always starts with the number 8.
Lastly? Anyone have an update on whether or not they're going to shift to laser fruit tattoos instead of stickers?
