Yes, it has been a VERY LONG time since I last posted. Classes & family have kept me busy – but all is good – and finally, I was inspired to write!
How does Vodka tie into Savvy Composting? Glad you asked.
On Saturday, EW and I were doing much needed shopping at the Costco in Carlsbad, CA. There, we had the pleasure of meeting Sam Chereskin, Co-Founder/President/CEO of MISADVENTURE & COMPANY. What caught my eye was a sign he had displayed on his table that stated, “40% of food grown in America gets wasted every year.” We were delighted to learn that, each week, Sam and his business partner, Whit, collect 2 thousand pounds of baked goods from the North County San Diego Food Bank. They turn these baked goods into vodka – YES, VODKA! How awesome is that? Of course we had to buy a bottle to show our support!
One of the most frequent questions I get is, “Doesn’t food break down in landfills anyway?” Yes, it does. However, food that breaks down without oxygen (anaerobically) produces methane gas – a greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change. Here comes my plug . . . composting, especially dump & run composting, is an easy way to help make a difference and reduce landfill waste. If you haven’t started composting, please . . . let Savvy Composting help you get started!
. . . and meanwhile, go buy a bottle of MISADVENTURE vodka – Sam & Whit will thank you!
