Zero Waste Week 2014: Can it be Easy?

Welcome to ZERO WASTE WEEK! Yeah, I know it's a UK "event." But why do they get to have all the fun, right? Not many people know about this great en-devour or know how big of an impact waste reduction can be. We are pretty good at not producing much waste, with Menu Planning and recycling, it keeps the can not so stuffed. It can get annoying with you drive down your neighborhood and see about 50% with trash cans overstuffed and even with two cans filled.

I find it fairly easy to begin. I shared an intro video on my Youtube channel and will be sharing other short videos sharing small things we are doing this week, so be sure to subscribe if you haven't already. So, a great way to begin is shopping! Everyone shops, right?! Opt out of the PLASTIC and go for the reusable!

Take the quiz to see what you are! EAT WHAT YOU ARE.... What's your Salad Sign.... Earthbound Farms is turning 30 and they are giving away 30 reusable bags! Click below and enter to WIN!

Look at these yummy salads! And they are in glass mason jars! Not only are they safe to eat from, they are BEAUTIFUL!

*Glass is 100% recyclable. You don't have to worry about toxins like BPA or other harmful chemicals that can leach into liquids from plastic bottles, or heavy metals.Your beverage will taste better coming out of glass - no unpleasant plastic or metallic taste or smell. Using reusable glass bottle also benefits the environment and you'll save money and the planet's resources when you stop drinking bottled water.
