Waste Not! How to Stop Throwing Away Good Food and Save Money

Melody Serafino Impact, Sustainable

In the U.S., up to 40 percent of all food that’s grown and sold goes uneaten each year, at an annual cost of $218 billion to consumers. Individual households are responsible for a whopping 43 percent of this waste — more than restaurants, grocery stores or any other single part of the domestic supply chain.

It’s a problem that Save The Food says costs the average family of four at least $1,500 per year.

Betty Who Raises $5,000 for Planned Parenthood

Melody Serafino Arts, Impact

Before pop singer Betty Who kicked off her acoustic set on Thursday night in the former Perry Street Theater space in Manhattan’s West Village, she had two messages to share with the crowd. The first was written across her chest, on a T-shirt that read, “Donald Eres Un Pendejo.” The tee came courtesy of Ilegal Mezcal, the booze brand that invited Betty to perform to help raise funds for the embattled Planned Parenthood, of which Betty is an ardent and vocal supporter.
