What is going on in Cedar Mountain?

When John and I purchased the Cedar Mountain Canteen, we realized we had just purchased a public home to share with the community.  We have our private home and now we have a public one.  We have one bag of trash a year at our private home and we knew we had to work to have no waste at our public home. That intention is obvious and others have noticed. We know first-hand the impact extracting resources to create disposable items has on a community.  We lived the devastation and it is the reason we purchased [...]

Bring Your Own

Many thanks to Sarah of Know Waste for creating this wonderful graphic to let people know an establishment welcomes you to bring your own reusable items. Cedar Mountain Fire & Rescue recently held another zero-waste fund raiser.  They hosted a pancake breakfast and Know Waste was on hand to help them with another event that has moved towards zero-waste. This canvas was displayed there.  Now it is at the Cedar Mountain Canteen until it is needed again somewhere else that has decided to stop wasting. Tin Roof Pizza Food Truck has announced they will be parked [...]

Moving to Conservers Plant-based potluck and a community conversation with Know Waste

August 11 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm Join Moving to Conservers for a plant-based potluck and presentation by the new service Know Waste at the Cedar Mountain Canteen at 10771 Greenville Highway, Cedar Mountain.  Becoming a community free from waste requires a few services.  One is a sharing club which Conservers created in 2020.  It is great to have a sharing club but becoming free from waste can be a lot of work.  Sarah and Nick recently provided that work at the Cedar Mountain Fire and Rescue’s first zero-waste fundraiser.  The Fire Department served 120 [...]

Cedar Mountain Fire and Rescue votes to move to zero-waste

The neighbors of the Cedar Mountain Canteen, Cedar Mountain Fire and Rescue, have voted to move to being a zero-waste organization!  We were beyond words when they shared the news!  We are working side by side (the Cedar Mountain Canteen has a pledge to be zero-waste too) to support each other on our journey to stop wasting!  One of the first things they did was join Transylvania Shares so that they could use plates, napkins and silverware for their 4th of July weekend fundraiser.  They fed 120 people and have almost no waste!  What a great [...]
