Don't fake it baby; lay the real thing on me.
The church of man, love, is such a holy place to be.
— David Bowie, 1971
It was 1971 — forty years ago. Astronaut Alan Shepard swung a six iron to hit a golf ball on the moon. Leaving this planet and soaring into space beyond had become old news; people had been doing it for ten years already. And Shepard was already the fifth person to set foot on the moon. I guess he figured it was time to have a little fun.
The moon had previously been an object of romance and mystery, of legend and even of worship, but never seemed to be so much a place, and certainly not a destination, until a little more than forty years ago. Few had ever envisioned the moon as a giant sandtrap.

Wow! 40 years! That's four decades... two full generations... almost 15,000 days-in-the-life. And a lot of apples, if you've been with us all those days, trying to keep the doctors (and food profiteers) away.

The benefits of reusable bags are probably not a mystery to any of GreenStar's members. Each time we bring in our own bags to do our shopping we are doing our part to reduce the paper and petroleum industries' production of disposable bags. This in turn reduces the presence of these items in our landfills and reduces the pollution associated with their manufacture. Because of this, GreenStar has always encouraged the use of reusable bags in our stores through a rebate policy.

Did you know we make granola right in our new GreenStar kitchen? We do, and it's available here in the Bulk Department.
Have you ever tried GreenStar's own Oasis Maple Nut Granola? Baked in small batches in our new kitchen then stocked fresh in Bulk at both stores, it's fast becoming a favorite of Ithaca's granola crowd. I'm betting it'll satiate your taste buds...
