Low-Waste Wins

A grocery store and a clothing company...An unlikely pair or perfect match? (Spoiler: both.) At Toad&Co, we design our clothes to make you feel good – only using sustainable fabrics like organic cotton, hemp and recycled materials. And we look for ways to lower our environmental impact and reduce waste in everything we do (like closed-loop production processes, reusable shipping options and...did we mention recycled fabrics?). Meanwhile, Imperfect Foods is leading the movement to eliminate food waste by giving their customers the power to rescue unwanted – but perfectly good – food. Since their founding, growers and customers have joined together to save more than 166 million pounds of food (!!) from lesser outcomes. Feels good, right?

Together, we're sharing a few of our favorite tips for low-waste living.
