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 start. It is so wonderful to have another organization to work with.
