    I’m composting a bit more as some of my organic produce was old. Still used, worms need it too!

    We forwarded on excess vegetables to a family member who will use them. (I missed my imperfect produce deadline to customize my box). Imperfect.com is well worth it, as they save imperfect looking produce from landfills and sell organics etc. at a reduced price, delivered directly to my door! So easy to set up online.

      Funny, I missed my customization window on Imperfect this time too. For the first time. I still am enjoying it and it certainly is convenient too.

    Well...I’m attempting to give a friend, who owns chickens, some egg cartons, which I’m thinking will reduce food packaging waste?

      Great! I just noticed today that if one of the challenges doesn't quite fit what you're doing you can actually design a custom solution. Haven't tried that yet. 

      If your friend doesn't need them I know Three Guys & Some Chicks (Valparaiso local farmer/egg seller) is in need. https://www.facebook.com/threeguysandsomechicks/

    I bought $72 worth of food and products that were destined for a landfill, and given free things on top of that! What I don’t use will go to local food pantry.

      I love the Hope Center (and the salvage grocery concept, in general.) 

      For anyone reading your post who doesn't know about it, I'm including a link to their website:
      https://handsofhope4u.org/indiana-hope-center as well as the Facebook groups formed for both the Grovertown (Indiana) and Joliet (Illinois) locations. Members of the Facebook groups post when there are particularly good deals, sometimes arrange to purchase on behalf of another member or carpool together. 

      The first time I went there I spent $100 and got $500 worth of food. That was in April of 2017. I imagine I've probably saved well over $10k on groceries in the past 2.5 years of shopping there. I love saving $green while doing something good for the planet!
