From the host: Aslan Brewing Co. produces world-class organic beer using sustainable practices and responsible sales techniques in order to promote a healthier, happier, and environmentally conscious community. www.aslanbrewing.com

This month is sponsored by La Fiamma::Wood Fire Pizza! La Fiamma is Bellingham's premier spot to snag a slice of pizza or an entire delicious pie. They commit to an aggressive zero-waste goal by promoting recycling and composting for both their staff and customers. La Fiamma has been a Bellingham staple since 1998, winning numerous awards for their food and unique atmosphere. Fiamma Burger's goal to buy local means their PNW beef is ground in-house and their buns are delivered by cargo bike. So next time you stop by La Fiamma or Fiamma Burger, tell them "thanks" for their environmental values, make use of their recycling and composting bins, and encourage your friends to always think twice before throwing away their leftovers. www.lafiamma.com
