    How does knowing the difference between use by, sell by, and best by dates empower you to make better decisions?

    I learned how to avoid waste by evaluating whether food is truly expired - if it's not showing signs of spoilage, regardless of sell-by/use-by dates, it's probably fine.  I will also donate cans /non perishable food past its expiration date, rather than discarding.

    How could you incorporate other "R's" -- reduce, reuse, refuse, repair, repurpose, etc. -- into your lifestyle? How does considering implementing these "R's" make you feel?

    Today I donated unwanted supplies to a nursing home.  They were happy to receive, and I’m happy that these items will be useful to others  instead of ending up in a landfill.
