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 at the Cedar Mountain Canteen permanently after they fulfill some other commitments.  They have decided to stop wasting when serving at the Canteen and are now serving on reusable plates.  Want to help and support them?  Bring your own. Three neighboring establishments in Cedar Mountain have make a commitment to stop wasting.  Our heartfelt thanks.

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 meals with almost no waste thanks to services provided by them.  We call them Know Waste. Our ultimate goal is to provide support in our community so that individuals can bring their own place settings for use every where they go.  As we migrate and move to that goal, services like Know Waste provide much needed support. Our potluck begins at 6 pm and the conversation begins at 7 pm.  If you [...]
