#lacompost

This is the story of a WIP: me

The 1st 2 pics are of my planner with an incomplete #weeklyspread. Often I fill in as the week goes bc most times the #beforethepen looks like the 3rd picture, all penciled in appts and no decoration. It's functional for me, but I try to push myself so through the week I add more and more. In this case, I added stickers or highlighted time blocks. Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn't

The same could be said about my zero waste journey... Scroll for pics and a check in

Today I enjoyed the brunch specials at @lasa_la! I'm so glad they have this available when I can go down to Chinatown bc hot damn! ((I'll post what I ordered in a min)) good food and real silverware 👌 what's a bonus is that they were accommodating when I asked to use my own containers

To help me with going zero waste: I'm completely in love with the @apolis bag I won from @rocket_science. It makes shopping so much fun and easy. I also got bread from a baker and just cut up my own slices. I'm not always perfect but if I remind myself and ask first, it makes it so much easier. For example, instead of buying a container, I got this metal box from Jeff's parents to use for storing food scraps 🙌

Yesterday I had the pleasure of going to the @lacompost workshop at @cufarm to learn about composting. I took notes and learned a ton, so I feel more prepared to tackle reducing my food waste. if you're in the LA area (esp the sfv) and ever get a chance to attend an @lacompost event or visit this farm, you really should as it's incredibly informative and wonderful to take a step away from the LA crazy
Thank you to all who joined us for this morning’s compost workshop at Cottonwood Urban Farm. We love seeing the network of composters in LA grow! 💚

Today I got to play with puppies, learn all about (and participate in) composting 🌿, eat a delicious brunch with @erondon and just enjoy the beautiful outdoors since LA has graced us with incredible weather today! Not a cloud in sight! ☀️ I’d say my Saturday is off to a rather swell start! 👍🏻🐶🥑🌱
.
Filmed my visit to @lacompost so I’ll be sure to upload that very soon and share my wonderful experience visiting @cufarm. Thank you for such a fun morning, Elliot & Michael! .

What is everyone up to this weekend? ☺️Hopefully weather conditions (wherever you are) have improved so you can enjoy your weekend! 🤞🏻

Have you heard of the Food Recovery Hierarchy? 🥒

It is a set of guidelines that prioritizes actions organizations can take to prevent and divert wasted food. Swipe left 👀 👉🏽 to view the ‘Hierarchy to Reduce food Waste and Grow Community’ by @ilsr74 . 🥦

As much as we believe in the benefits of composting, we also believe that good edible food should be used to feed people first. 🍅
We’ve tagged local organizations that are doing just that. Check them out and support fighting food waste. ✊🏽

Rain or Shine 🌧☀️😄
Today, I volunteered with @lacompost 🌿✨
LA Compost is a nonprofit that facilitates several compost hubs in the area. I’ve been dropping off my food scraps with them for a few months now but it was an awesome experience to work on the other side of the table, despite the rainy weather! It was great to see how so many people were grateful to have this service! Volunteering & community involvement are very important because it’s essential to building a more sustainable future! 🌎✨
#TGIF Compost Drop off Dance! 💃🏽 Boogie on over to the #linkinbio ☝🏽 to sign up for our newsletter. We’ll be sharing dates for the first compost workshops of 2019! Don’t miss it. .

Bring your food scraps to the @lacompost drop-off at the @atwatervillagefm tomorrow (and every Sunday) between 10 am and 2 pm. Members of the Zero Waste Team will be manning the table, so please say hi 👋🏼
We love seeing YOUR household food scrap set ups! 🤗 We encourage the use of reusable/compostable containers to collect food scraps versus plastic bags which generate more waste in the end. They can range from a tupperware, to a glass jar, to a five gallon bucket. Make yours work for YOU. 🥕 Check out this one from @jocelynbellew with some of our signage added on! 🌠

#CompostTip: Brown paper bags make great vehicles for collecting and transporting your compost. 🥥(They are compostable themselves!) Just remember to dump out your bag and tear it up after! 👌🏽

🌟It’s time for a #HubSpotlight 🌟 This is the Solano Canyon Community Garden, a five acre garden established in 1998. It provides green space, garden plots, and compost drop off for the community! 🌱 Pictured here is our Executive Director Michael leading a composting workshop last spring. 👩🏽‍🌾 Next time you’re driving 110 N keep your eyes peeled 👀, part of the garden is situated right above the freeway!

"Food scraps and yard waste together currently make up about 30 percent of what we throw away, and should be composted instead. Making compost keeps these materials out of landfills where they take up space and release methane, a potent greenhouse gas." - @epagov 🌎🌱

Everything is not as it "steams"! 😱 As microbes break down material they give off heat as a byproduct. The moisture in the pile is heated up and turns to gas. This is the steam that can be seen as you turn a hot pile of compost! .

I’ve been super busy because of the holidays but I wanted to share my trip to the Atwater Village Farmers Market last week. It was the best part of my weekend! 🌿✨
Once I found out that @lacompost has a compost drop-off here every Sunday, I started collecting my food scraps. This is perfect for me because I live in an apartment with very little space. I have a designated container that I leave in the freezer to avoid fruit flies. LA Compost has several compost drop-offs, so if you live in the area, check out their website for their other sites.
Also found some cool vendors. Did some grocery shopping. I bought a few things for myself and gifts at the @sustain_la booth. They have a refillable station that I will be taking advantage of when I come back prepared with jars. Had to get some yummy pupusas! Luckily I had my bamboo utensil set😋
🚫Traditional gift wrap is a single use non-recyclable material! 🚫 Consider using wrapping that can be easily broken down by one of our compost hubs. Comment your ideas for compostable or reusable wrapping ideas for this gift giving season! 🎁

Carbon produced by mulch and dried leaves is an essential part of the composting process. Several of our hubs are low on mulch/leaves or what we call "browns". If able, please drop off browns from your yard at the Compost Hubs below! Thanks for playing your role in local composting. 🙏

Composting! I keep a bowl inside to collect anything that can be composted and then empty it into my compost can. This reduces trash waste and bag use. And after a few months, you have your own compost to use for gardening!

Living in #la, I don’t have a lot of space, so I have a small metal trash can that I use for a compost can. Look at my story for more details! This is very easy guys!

Whatever I can’t fit into my can, I put in LA’s green waste bin. The composting facility for LA is great! They do workshops and sell large compost containers. Check it out in Griffith Park!

FOR THE GREATER 🌎 GOOD.
I used to do everything for myself and of course the people I knew and loved....but it pretty much 🛑 stopped there.
Then I started learning about SEVA which is selfless service. Then started seeing it in multiple spiritual texts and philosophy’s and talked about by many religions and leaders in different ways and began to understand what it meant and why it is key to elevating the globe and it is now a huge part of our lifestyle. “Seva or service is infinite giving. Service is not finite giving. If you do some service and say, 'I served,' then you have totally missed the point. Service is when you feel honored by doing something. You don't feel honor in the company of many. You feel it within your own self. That is service.
Seva is when your inside is honored, when you honor yourself. When I am honored in my consciousness for doing something, it is seva. When I stand before my consciousness, I feel good, and I say, ‘Well, I am so blessed that I could do it.’ That's seva.”
That is how I feel when I teach yoga, help someone on the street, give someone a meditation, and carry rotting fruit and veggies on my head (composting 🤣) to create less heads of lettuce rotting in the land fills for 200 years and hopefully inspire more people to do the same so our planet can survive and thrive for the generations after us.
We can all do it in different big and small ways that feel good to us.
When more of us do seva and give back, we honor ourselves and radiate that vibration and we can do a lot of great work that has a massive positive impact in the world.
Let’s be a part of the solution.
Let’s be a part of more love and less fear on the planet.
Who’s with us?? Type YES if you’re in to elevate the globe with us. How do you practice SEVA?👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼 The box 📦 on my head is @imperfectproduce and you can get 50% off with our code elevatetheglobe and it’s an amazing organic local delivery! you want to learn more about composting we have a podcast episode awhile back that goes over it all.

Thank you @lacompost for letting me compost with you. It makes me so happy! 🥕🍌🥝🥑🥒🍍🍓🍎🌶🥦❤️ #lacompost #earthcandy #foodscraps @climateactionchallenge #doingourpart #yayforearth
Happy Earth Day, Earthlings!! 🌏 In honor of this day I wanted to tell you a little bit about our composting program in the shop!

In efforts to reduce how much waste we send to the landfill, we’ve partnered with @lacompost and the @elysianvalleycommunitygarden to dump our compostable items. Coffee grounds are great for your soil and compost piles!

So if you’ve seen @tomas_coolfur lugging these bins around town, and thought to yourself, “what is that boy doing?” Now you know!

If you’re interested in starting your own compost pile at home, and would like some coffee grounds for your pile, please feel free to reach out to us and we would be happy to help! Also, @lacompost is a great resource if you have any composting questions💚☕️

Shout out to our partners at @lacompost for our first bag of nutritious compost. We are a Hub site for composting in #losangeles . Approx. 50,000 Lbs of food waste was diverted from our local landfills. Thanks to @thelakitchen for your progressive thinking and willingness to support awesome projects. Together we are all making #NortheastLA a vibrant bird friendly community by connecting people with their land, neighbor, food and environment. At #auduboncenteratdebspark We are working on the perfect mix of compost and #nativesoil to grow our #canatives here at the Los Nogales Nursery.That's what's up! #puroaudubon #lacompost #divertyourfoodwaste #healthysoil #grownatives #nela #highlandpark #birdfriendlycommunities

It’s world food day and organizations like LA Compost are doing great work to make sure that there is #zerowaste in LA. We had a great time at the Gratitude Party learning about composting and getting food waste out of our wastestream! #LACompost #worldfoodday #wastefreeLA #recycLA
