Do you have a

Do you have a "black thumb"? Want to save money on groceries? Do you want to create infinite organic produce?? Well you're in luck, because you can actually re-grow most vegetables by soaking the roots in water! It's truly remarkable. Simply set the bottom of your vegetable of choice in about 1/2 in. of water, check it every few days, and you have eternal veggies! You can do this with bok choy, cabbages, carrot & beet greens, fennel, green onion, leeks, lemongrass, lettuces, herbs, and SO much more! It's an incredibly sustainable and FREE way to get more than your money's worth. #dontwasteyourwaste #fightfoodwaste #bethechange #savetheplanet #zerofoodwaste #curbsidecompost #igkc #kcmo #compostcollectivekc #feedpeoplenotlandfills ...

We traditionally think of pesto as basil, parmesan, olive oil, pine nuts, and salt. But this sauce can be SO MUCH more than just the boring usual ingredients! If you want to be an adventurous, sustainable chef, try using greens like parsley, arugula, kale, collards, mustard greens, or even carrot or beet greens! And you don't have to spend a fortune on pine nuts; use whatever you have in the cupboard! Walnuts, almonds, macadamia and pistachios all make for fantastic pesto. While you'll want to stick to a hard cheese for blending sake, let your imagination run wild. Pesto really is an amorphous sauce that can be made with any budget and any pantry! Go forth and eat sustainably..

The American Dental Association recommends switching to a new toothbrush every three months. This means about 1 BILLION plastic toothbrushes (about 50 million pounds) are thrown away each year in the US alone. With the amount of plastic in our oceans, every tiny habit we change matters. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How can you help? Switch to bamboo!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thankfully, this sustainable trend has been exploding with popularity. Even Colgate has jumped on the bandwagon and released a (mostly) compostable toothbrush. Check your local zero-waste shop and do your part to reduce plastic waste today 🙌🏼🎋 💚 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Food scraps are great for creating rich compost, but they have the capability of providing us with so much more! In many cities all over the globe, food waste is processed into biogases; supplying homes with heating, gas, and electricity. Food scraps also help supply the animal feed, soap, and household cleaner industries, as well as so much more. Organic waste is an incredible resource that has so much more potential when it DOESN’T end up in a landfill! 🥕🌽🐮🐛 Head to our blog to read all about the industrial uses of food waste!

One of the biggest trends we've seen during this quarantine (besides adorable homemade face masks) is "Garden Focaccia", and we're in love with it! Taking colorful scraps from your garden or the back of your fridge, you can make beautiful edible works of art like this one. Have you taken a swing at this tasty craft? Tag us in a photo of your garden focaccia; we want to see! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #dontwasteyourwaste #fightfoodwaste #bethechange #savetheplanet #zerofoodwaste #curbsidecompost #igkc #kcmo #compostcollectivekc #quarantinecooking #gardenfocaccia ...

OMG!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We can't believe we've made 2k friends on instagram! Only a couple of years ago, CCKC was starting out with less than 50 customers. Fast forward to now, and we've gained 20x that number, as well as inspired hundreds more to live sustainably and start their own compost piles! We are SO grateful for each and every one of you, and we are so excited for what the next year has in store. We couldn't have gotten here without you, so here's to you guys! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Ever heard of the Food Recovery Hierarchy? It was devised by the EPA to end food waste once and for all. At the top you will find strategies that are the most preferable, down to the bottom, where the least preferable food waste options are. You may be surprised to see compost next to the least preferable option, but it is the last resort before heading to the landfill! As much as we love the composting process, the best solution to food waste is to not create any waste in the first place! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Raise your hand if you had no clue loofahs came from a vine 😳🤚🏼⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Loofah (or Luffa) is actually a species of gourd that can be grown in your very own backyard! Simply watch it grow, let it spoil and dry up on the vine, and then harvest the dried pulp from within. Next time you need a shower scrubber, reach for the sustainable option in your garden or at a zero-waste shop, instead of the plastic alternative! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
