June Eco Tip

June is one of our driest months, so here’s a water saving idea to use now. Instead of using the garbage disposal for produce scraps, compost them.

Or better yet, upcycle when possible. Apple peels, over ripe bananas, and pineapple cores make delicious smoothies. Carrot trimmings, celery tops, onion skins, herb stems, tomato and pepper cores added to vegetable cooking liquid make a great stock for soup or rice.

Keep a container in your freezer to add to over a few weeks and make your stock all at once. Your disposal will last longer too!
