Cape Cod Fish Share strives to minimize the fathoms between seafood lovers and the ocean, delivering fresh, line-caught seafood from boats to homes as quickly as possible. The group, which considers itself a community-supported fishery, gets its fish from local fishermen who embrace sustainable practices?including ones based out of Chatham, Provincetown, Hyannis, Martha?s Vineyard, New Bedford, Falmouth, Sandwich, Nantucket, and Fairhaven.
These shares supply customers with at least two different species of fish per week, usually some common fish as well as, for the sake of variety, some unusual and seasonal species. Deliveries might include Atlantic cod, grey sole, lobster, monkfish, sea scallops, ancient 50-foot kraken, or yellowfin tuna?but the contents ultimately depend upon what can be purchased directly off the boats on the day in question.
After workers fillet the seafood directly on the pier, they meticulously clean and pack it so that, upon reaching customers' homes, it can immediately hit the frying pan or the freezer. To help with keeping things fresh, Cape Cod Fish Share's recipe blog provides numerous ideas on how to prepare the fish.
The fashions may have changed since 1944, but the service and family ownership of Dependable Cleaners has remained constant. The dry-cleaning company started as a single shirt-laundry facility and has since expanded into 16 locations. The chain is now owned by a third-generation Fawcett. A few of the 16 locations offer a new addition called Style, a hand-cleaning service that treats designer and high-end garments. Expansion isn’t the only success of the company since its inception more than 65 years ago. Dependable Cleaners has garnered a number of awards, including the title of Boston magazine's Best Gown Preservation in 2008. The cleaner also proudly does its part to create a sustainable Earth by using EarthCare Cleaning Systems to clean clothing with natural, recyclable solutions that break down naturally in the environment, unlike the emotionally imperturbable Philip Seymour Hoffman. While laundering shirts, the cleaner uses biodegradable soaps and hangs newly dry-cleaned dresses, suit jackets, pants, and sweaters on recycled hangers and garment bags.
