The wastes of are a massive untapped source of wealth that I think and especially the movement need to take better advantage of

We'd never need to buy paper if we pulped and recycled junk mail and receipts. We'd never need to buy dirt if we composted all our food waste. We'd never need to buy anything made of plastic or aluminum if we melted and molded them ourselves. We'd need to buy much less wood if we collected all the discarded pallets

@socalledunitedstates the amount of food that we get from supermarkets that would otherwise throw it out is why I want every solarpunk to be involved in Food Not Bombs

@scottishwobbly @socalledunitedstates the Last Week Tonight episode on food waste has a part where someone is walking through a landfill that appears to be 100% fresh produce

@scottishwobbly @socalledunitedstates the reason most grocery stores don't donate their unsold food is not malice: it's misinformation.

There's someone in the episode saying that they don't donate food that's past its arbitrary expiration date because they're scared of being sued for donating spoiled food.
