Zero waste is not actually optional

At Blackwell and Sons, we are making 2021 the year we refine everything we do so that waste disappears from our vocabulary. Why would you make anything designed to be thrown away? This is going to take some energy but we'll be focusing on lots of small actions that add up to a big overall impact. Our economy and our planet needs this to happen now.

Millie and I founded our relationship on dining out together. We still love date night (which is actually any night we dine together) and with warmer days and longer evenings upon us, picnic time is for any meal and any location. We don't need a lot of tools for picnics. Just good ones.
