    Support businesses that are using their products for good the good of the environment and safety from COVID 19. Rothy's is a shoe and accessory line that uses reusable materials, and now they are selling masks. They are great! I love to support businesses like Rothy's and I am very happy with their mask.

    My neighbors needed some baking ingredients this week and I was more than willing to give them what they need - since I do not use my flour/sugar fast enough. This avoids 2 things: my food expiring and wasting, and my neighbors do not need to waste the packaging buying baking ingredients for 1 recipe.
  • Reflection Question
    Food Start Composting
    Do an inventory of how much food waste you would save from going to the landfill if you start composting all of the time. What are the added benefits of having compost that is readily accessible?

    When I prepare dinner, I keep a 'scrap bowl' next to me to collect food waste. Super easy. Then I take it outside to a compost bin in the yard. Since this food waste is not in the trash, my kitchen smells better and there are less flies! It is a win-win!
