Get More for Your Money by Preventing Food Waste!
Although we love feeding food scraps to Binny, he understands that it’s most important to prevent wasted food in the first place. It saves you money and reduces greenhouse gases!
Our friends at StopWaste have created a beautiful website to help us plan well, store well and eat well so we use up all the edible food we pay for at the store.
StopFoodWaste.org is chock full of smart tips to prolong the shelf life of fresh foods, and offers tasty recipes for leftovers too! Our favorite tool is the Storage Guide, which details where to store foods so that they stay fresher, longer. Download it at http://stopfoodwaste.org/resources
Here’s to a food waste-free Holiday Season!
Tricky Item: Reusable Items
Please consider donating any household reusable item that you no longer need. As long as it is in good condition and working order, it can be donated and reused. Clothing, toys, appliances, furniture may be reusable. We’ve found many such items in the recycling carts, but unfortunately they are not recyclable. Please visit your favorite charity’s website, or use the RecycleWhere tool at http://www.recyclewhere.org/ to match your unwanted items with a business or charity that will find them a new home. LSI will pick up bagged clothing placed next to the recycling cart on your regular service day during the first week of every quarter. Download the service guide for details.
