I've sent previous articles about the merits of dumpster diving. Now a
well-known dumpster diver, Jeremy Seifert, who has a documentary called
Dive coming out this summer about the practice, is calling for a
petition for Trader Joe's to reduce its food waste and seek alternative
means of disposal such as source reduction or donation to food banks.
Trader Joe's, often touted as a "green" grocery stores, is a starting
point for a grass-roots movement for encouraging zero-waste from grocery
stores. Let's hope that Trader Joe's is cooperative and will set the
example for other grocery chains to follow.
Have a great weekend,
