Welcome to the Waste Not Want Not Wednesday link party! WNWNW is a place to find (and link up) gluten free recipes, eco-friendly tips, and frugal DIY tutorials. This link-up party is inspired by World Food Day (Oct. 16), and studies such as this one that show that between 40-51% of food in Canada and America ends up in the garbage. Over-consumption, lack of knowledge, low cost and over purchasing are common causes of food waste in North America. This unsustainable over-consumption extends to so many aspects of our lives.
So perhaps if we all share our tips for consuming a little less stuff in general, cooking more responsibly and frugally, and living eco-friendly, we can each take a small part in making our world a little more sustainable.
WNWNW is hosted by myself, Danielle, and Elise from Frugal Farm Wife. When you share a link on this site, your submission will appear both here and on Frugal Farm Wife. Follow both of us to see if we highlight your link on our social media during the week. We also have a Waste Not Want Not Wednesday Pinterest board where we share WNWNW posts.
To Europe, that is!! That's right, I'm off on a crazy, one month long trip across Europe, starting in northern Greece, driving right down almost to the southern tip of the Peloponnese, flying to Rome, taking the train to Milan, then Paris, and finally finishing up in Edinburgh.
Needless to say, since I'll be on the plane the time this post goes live, I'm not around to pick out features, nor will I be for the next month.
WNWNW will, however, continue on here (yes, I'm finally working on pre-scheduling posts! I've got a couple of recipes lined up for the next few weeks as well) and on Elise's site. Elise will still be picking features while I'm away, so stay tuned to our WNWNW Pinterest board and her site to check out the weekly features.
In the meantime, wish me luck! I've only got carry-on luggage for a month's worth of traveling *gulp*
So party on, good people, and I'll see you again at the end of March :)
