Check out their website linked in our bio. Thank you @audubon_debspark for connecting Angelenos to nature and local ecosystems. 🦉

#donutwastefood 😬 I’m lucky enough to get free leftovers from a local bakery almost every week, and I’ve been super bloated since I basically live off them 🤤🍩

But really, if all these donuts and croissants and bread loaves weren’t going into my stomach, they’d be going into the landfill 🍞🍩🥐🍪🤷🏽‍♀️ #takingonefortheteam #mycontributiontotheworld

Thing is... I never know when I’ll get them, and they’re typically already packaged in a plastic bag or plastic-lined box so there are definitely trade-offs to this delicious landfill diversion 😋😓#nosuchthingaszerowaste
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. ✊🏽

Looking over the natural wonders of the mountains, ocean and desert all in one place. I am in awe of the beauty of nature and hope to preserve it for the betterment of everyone.
These places won’t protect themselves. If you enjoy the outdoors or traveling to beautiful places then help preserve them by reducing your waste and refusing plastic where you can.
Or those natural wonders will just become another trash can.

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! 🌠

Alright, time for another review on another eco-friendly alternative product: Allbird Runners!🏃🏻‍♀️ I got these shoes because I wanted a comfortable, casual, simple shoe that was also sustainably made. These have actually gotten a lot of hype lately.
Check out my video review 🎥⬆️(link in bio) to see if they really are worth their price!

#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! .

Whose mom wins the zero waste Christmas award?? Even though I told her NOT to bring me too many gifts this year(when has that ever worked with moms?), I couldn’t help but be proud when my mom showed up with gifts wrapped in homemade, reusable wrappings!!! She DIYed the heck outta this. Some are even dish towels and napkins that I can actually use. As for the fabric bags, we will continue to use and pass them around the fam for years to come. Conventional gift wrap is paper lined with plastic so it’s usually not recyclable- talk about a Christmas downer. I think this style of gift wrap is cuter, much more personable and a great conversation starter with the person you’re gifting! 😘🌲
🚫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. 🙏

You see trash? I see free veggie stock! Don’t throw your scraps away people, make more food! I collect all sorts of veggie peels, skins and odds and ends in my freezer and when I have a pots worth I simmer them in water with salt, peppercorns and bay leaves. Then I keep the broth in the fridge or freezer till I’m in the mood for soup (which is all the time let’s be real). This saves me from buying broth which normally comes in unrecyclable Tetra Pak packaging and it’s so flavorful. Give your trash a second life. A second, yummy life!

Thanks to @lasfotosproject for these beautiful photos taken at our Gratitude Party back in October.
The view from my day off: slow projects. L-R: cultured almond feta cheese in the making (day 4 of a 7 day process), citrus peels in vinegar for homemade cleaner (day 9 of a 2ish week process), homemade Dijon mustard that needs to sit out and mellow in flavor (day 7 of a 3ish week process), and lastly, mung beans soaking to be sprouted (day 1 of a 2-3 day process). Oh, and of course my lil green onion garden- regrowing for about the third time. All 5 of these projects will save me from purchasing several items in packaging. They take time but the steps and ingredients are all fairly simple. I find this part of the low waste lifestyle incredibly satisfying and empowering. There’s nothing better than realizing something you’ve been purchasing for years can be made (better!) in your own kitchen. No, not everyone can and should make everything from scratch but if you can find a couple things here and there that you find enjoyable to make and it saves you on money and packaging- try em out! There are certainly recipes I’ve tried and failed at and ultimately decided buying was the better choice for me (I’ve made a lot of mediocre bread...). There’s no shame in that. There’s also a sense of appreciation you gain for the items in your fridge when you have taken weeks to nurture them. That’s something we miss out on with packaged items from big box grocery stores. Be proud of your fridge!
Standing on my feet for 8 hours a day in a kitchen makes my shoes kinda....well, not fresh. (I know I need better shoes- don’t worry I have insoles!) Anyway, I picked up this trick a while back and need to spread the word! Mix 3 parts baking soda, 1 part cornstarch with like 5-7 drops of tea tree oil and fill your stinky shoes. Shake em around to really cover all the inside and let sit over night. The powders will absorb moisture and the tea tree, which is a natural antiseptic, will kill bacteria causing odor. It’s like a spa treatment for your shoes! 🚿 👟 🧖‍♀️Then shake out the powder in the morning and you’re on your way! I use this trick for my work out shoes and hiking boots as well. Side note: anyone have a lead on good vegan clogs...

Tonight’s low waste, vegan meal is so friggin easy and comforting. Seriously, make a pot of this and you’ll feel so cozy. It’s chickpea noodle soup guys! Literally just imagine a chicken noodle soup recipe. Ok, but the moment you were gonna throw in chicken, put chickpeas instead 🤷‍♀️ its A LOT cheaper....and you know...nicer for the chickens. Whatever gets ya there! Start by sautéing half a yellow onion, add in garlic and then carrots, celery, s and p and thyme(if you have fresh it’s much better but dried works too). Let soften a little and then add in your stock. I used my homemade ‘veggie scraps stock’ but if you have boullion or something else go for it. But seriously if you haven’t tried making your own stock yet...it’s basically free broth. Bring to a boil and then add in your cooked chickpeas. Turn down heat, cover and let simmer till veggies are to your softened preference. I like to cook my pasta separately. I store them separately in the fridge for leftovers as well. No soggy noodles here. I also like to finish my soup with a glug of vinegar. Must be my Eastern European blood. Not to much just a bit. White wine or apple cider will do the trick. No go snuggle on the couch with your soup already! 😽
GUYS GUYS GUYS! hope you’re not all fasting or green juicing after thanksgiving cus boy do I have a dinner idea for you. I’ve been workin on this Mac and cheese recipe and it is gettin GOOD. So easy compared to a lot of other vegan macs out there. (Don’t worry the butternut squash is not going to become the sauce- keep reading!) Besides the vegan butter, all the ingredients are fairly easy to find in bulk so this meal makes a great low waste option. Boil your pasta until a dente- the dish tastes better if the noodles are a fun shape- that’s just science. I roasted off chunks of the butternut squash with thick cut leeks (not pictured- SORRY, I’m bad at this). While the pasta is cooking and the veg is roasting make the sauce. Melt 4 Tablespoons of butter in a large pot. When melted and slighting browning add 4-5 cloves of roughly chopped garlic. Then add in 4 Tablespoons of flour, one at a time, whisking after each one. Keep the heat low you don’t want this to burn. You’re making a béchamel sauce if that means anything to you. Then you are going to slowly add about 2 1/2 cups of “milk”. I used my home made cashew but unsweetened almond or coco would do the trick. The sauce will thicken up. Continue whisking while slowly adding the milk. When it looks nice and gooey turn off heat, add 5 spoonfuls of nutritional yeast and salt and pepper to taste. I sometime throw in a couple drops of liquid smoke to give it a Gouda type flav so if that’s something your pantry supports go for it!
Then just dump in pasta and veggies. I like to bake with homemade breadcrumb topping but you really could just stop here. Try not to eat the whole pan- it’s difficult.
For many, tomorrow is a day to connect with loved ones and fill up on holiday foods. Extra food can be shared with neighbors that may not have a warm meal to enjoy. After food has been shared, community compost hubs are here to accept the food scraps that didn't make the cut! 🌽🥧🍠⠀

Protip: Keep your scraps in the freezer until the food coma has subsided and you're ready to drop them off. #soilandpeople ⠀

Tonight’s low waste vegan meal is an old fav of mine. Soba noodle bowl! I make this for a lunch or dinner pretty much every week. Simple, fast and most importantly, tasty af. 😽I buy my soba noodles in bulk at @berkeleybowl but they’re actually usually impossible to find not in plastic. You could honestly sub any noodle you like. Or even brown rice! Slice up some veggies- the closer you get to looking like a rainbow the better the picture is👍Lastly, whip up an easy peanut sauce. I blend peanut butter with fresh garlic, ginger, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar and chili flakes till I like the consistency. Drizzle and you’re done! Sometimes I throw on some tempeh or tofu but it doesn’t need it. This recipe makes for an awesome packed lunch as well. Mmkay gonna go slurp it up byyyeeee.
I love this company @epic_renewal! Making composting at home so easy! 🌱

Food waste is a huge contributor to our trash problem. Some stats say 30% of what ends of in landfills could have been composted! 😱

Here in L.A. can't put food waste in our green bins, only yard trimmings. Food thrown in the trash won't decompose, crazy right! It needs lots of air, and the right environment.
So composting it is! 💚

This company does all the dirty work for me! 🙌
They drop off a bin at my door and pick it up the next week!
Some tips✨
- Waste less food. Eat is before it goes bad!
- Research where and how you can compost.
- Don't want to pay to compost, some local farmers markets collect compost, such as the Atwater farmers market!
- Rethink ways to switch to compostable items, such as compostable plates and silverware. - Research what is compostable. You might be surprised what you find!
Happy composting! 🌱🍏🗑️ .

Lately I’ve been getting a lot of questions about what I eat everyday. I think it’s hard to imagine what a vegan who tries to avoid packaging might prepare for dinner. Hell I probably would have wondered the same thing a couple of years ago! So I decided I’m gonna post a week of “low waste”, vegan dinners! I know I love looking at this shit on Instagram so hopefully you will too! I’ve learned it’s very easy, and actually less expensive to prepare hearty, low waste, plant based meals at home. I hope this can inspire some of you to leave animal products off your plate one or two nights a week and maybe challenge yourself to prepare a meal that sends nothing to the landfill! 🧜‍♀️ Do it for the mermaids!
First up is roasted veggies with tahini drizzle 🤗 This is a go-to in our house cus it’s really adaptable depending on the season and what you’re in the mood for. Here I’ve got beets, Japanese sweet potato, carrots, cauliflower and onion (always, I repeat, ALWAYS roast with an onion). I like to leave garlic cloves whole in the roasting pan so I can pop em open in my bowl like sweet lil garlic candies. Cook up some quinoa while the veggies are roasting and stir some tahini with lemon juice, salt and pep for the easiest drizzle you ever did make. DINNER: DONE. Swipe for my cozy bowl.

Athens Services attended a #Sustainable Fair at @treeacademy to teach students & the community how to #recycle and #compost to #reduce their environmental impact ♻️👍🌎 #zerowastela #recycLA #communitypartners
Here’s our low waste #groceryhaul for the week! @sprouts is my go to for when I’m doing a big shop cus I think they have a great produce selection and a wide variety of bulk items at super reasonable prices. I always recommend this store to anyone who’s looking to reduce their waste but doesn’t want to visit a thousand specialty stores. I plan on roasting a lot of veg this week and trying out a pumpkin curry recipe. I also stocked up on flour and sugar cus I gots to bake! I grabbed some mixed beans as well to throw in soups. Oh ya, and some peanut butter pretzels....😬🙃😗 #zerowaste #zerowastegroceries #green #vegan #whatsveganseat #autumn #zerowastela #iquitplastics #packagefree
Zero Waste from crown to toe. Textiles make up 2.5% of Los Angeles' waste. Reuse is the answer! 12 hours and 100s of plastic straw snakes to create the Greek goddess, queen of snakes, and mother of pegasus MEDUSA. Who said #reuse couldn't be #spooktacular . The crown is made of saved broken jewelry, sea shells from a clothing swap, and 100s of would be trashed straws. The belt and scarf are #clothingswap finds. The dress is my moms dress from the 70s. Nothing was bought for the purpose of this costume. The snake cuff was thrift. And the jewelry was bought in Greece from a local artisan. Dressing up at work is the best, especially when there is a zero waste potluck with other #wastesisters
