about the blog


While looking for the best ingredients, we found that many companies that care about quality also care about sustainability. We discovered that by choosing the best ingredients and eating better, we had reduced our carbon footprint. A few more changes, and we cut our carbon footprint in half! So we decided to share this in a blog.

We have no affiliates and are not paid to mention brands. We just love buying the best, sharing that information and saving the planet at the same time.


Tony and I are are professional photographers living in Santa Cruz, California.  We have been together as a couple for over 25 years and spent 10 years photographing weddings.  Our photographs have been frequently published in blogs and magazines, and they were selected “Editors’ Choice” by Two Bright Lights.  Since we have both lived in Santa Cruz for over 30 years, we have strong ties to the community.  Until recently, Tony worked as the Stroke Coordinator for Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Gatos, and I was the Deputy Agricultural Commissioner.
