Remember when the milk man used to deliver fresh milk to our doorsteps, every morning?
Neither do I! However, for one of my good friends, delivering milk was her father’s first job — put out of business by the cheap and plentiful oil (and gas) of the 1960’s and early 70’s.
It’s hard to believe now that gas prices have retreated from the highs of a few years ago, that we are actually living in a time of increasing oil and gas scarcity. The true price of oil and gas has been covered up another recent invention — savings accounts that don’t pay anything to savers. Back when banks had to pay us for the use of our money, investors couldn’t afford to put money into gas exploration that spills more money than carbon!

Returning to Raw Tibicos Delivery, we try hard to learn from the past. One of the practices, back when gas was expensive and rare, was simple — food got delivered!
Imagine a village, with the C–, F–, P–, R– and W– families. Rather than each of them making a separate trip to pick up grain bowls, hot soup, vegetable blends and tibicos drink, the delivery van makes one trip, bringing exactly what is needed to each family, for a fraction of the miles driven! We have been following this model since October 2018; and a tremendous amount of credit for Raw Tibicos Delivery’s ability to spare the planet goes to you, our customers, for working with us on the timing of your deliveries, and buying bulk! Your delivery choices have been saving huge amounts of gas miles! I could say, “thank you for making us look good”, but honestly, the credit, and good looks, belong to you.
Currently, Tuesday is the day we deliver to Welland, Monday and Wednesday in St Catharines, and Fridays in Niagara-on-the-Lake. We have more vans on the road, so please do save some gas miles, and call to set up regular delivery service to your community!
Thank you, again, for helping our air!
