For breakfast I went to a diner serving local and organic food. I had a good, typical meal and got a tea. Now tea is a complicated beast. This tea was fair trade, biodynamic, and organic which was really great. But my questioning didn't stop there. If I order tea, which I rarely do because I am a coffee person, I only want it if it comes loose. Why? A lot of tea bags are actually made of plastic and are therefore not biodegradable. Additionally the wrappers, which seem like they are paper, are actually lined with plastic, so also not biodegradable or recyclable. I'm not sacrificing sustainability for a cup or tea, so I like to be sure that the restaurant or care serves it loose. Plus, it tastes better.
After breakfast I skated around and then checked out Wicker Park. It got warm and so I grabbed a drink to go in my mason jar.
I had a nice dinner out at a sustainable restaurant around Fulton Market and then headed back to my awesome AirBnb (in LOVE with it). Tomorrow I'll grab a bunch of snacks for the road and for camping and will arrive at my next city stop early next week.
For clothing I wore my black tank, black sweater, boyfriend jeans, and converse.
Next stop: Seattle, Washington
