Waste Not Want Not Wednesday - April 29, 2015

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.

And besides, who couldn't save a little bit of $$$?

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.

  1. Thanks for hosting Danielle! This week I'm sharing Ginger Sesame Roasted Veggies.
    I hope you have an awesome week and enjoy our warmer temperatures!

    1. Thanks, Sandi! It is getting nice, isn't it?! Now if only we could predict the rain...

  2. Hi Danielle,

    Thanks for featuring my BLT Romaine and Egg Salad. I'm glad you liked it.

    Have a great week!

  3. Thanks for the feature and for hosting! Have a great rest of the week!

  4. Hi Danielle,

    I'm afraid I took up more than my share of linky spots WNWNW on this week. It was a productive week for me. Giving recipes a frugal makeover and writing posts about poverty for the #livebelowtheline. I'll slow it down and probably only post one or two at most next week :-)

    1. Don't worry about it, Laureen! Especially not if it's for a good cause :)


I'd love to hear from you so go ahead, leave a comment!
