a fruity summer

Did you know that 20 billion pounds of fresh go unharvested or unsold each year? Or that nearly 40% of the food in the US goes uneaten?!

Continuing to stay home, we have sought out options to get foods delivered! We've been getting Imperfect Foods for a couple weeks now, and fun yet impactful at the same time. We get a box delivered each week of mostly produce and sometimes some grains! You can customize your preferences and you end up with so many amazing fruits and veggies that would have been thrown away! They take unwanted food and often 'imperfect' produce from grocery stores that don't sell. And with the new products, we've had to get a little bit more creative with dishes, which is a win-win for us and the Earth! 

How many times have we gone to the grocery store and picked up an apple, but because it had some discoloring or a nick in the skin, put it back to find a more 'refined' one? I am guilty of this myself! 

If you're interested in trying out getting 'imperfect' produce, you can find if they deliver to you and start your box here. In all transparency, when you use our link and order a box, we will get $10 to use on our next box! :)

“We don't need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly.” -Anne Marie Bonneau, Zero Waste Chef

Happy munching on plants and here's to doing "zero waste imperfectly"!
