Earth Month at Imperfect: #learnmorewasteless

April is here, which means spring produce is ripening in the fields, and the Imperfect team is thinking about ways to live a less wasteful life in honor of Earth Month. While we treat every month as Earth Month at Imperfect, this April we are going to be taking this commitment to a new level. We need your help to make this happen.

Your mission for April is simple: #learnmorewasteless

Learn more

Each week, we’ll be sharing facts about waste in our lives on social media and in our optional cards in our boxes. We ask that you share these facts with your friends and family on social media using our hashtag #learnmorewasteless to spread awareness about waste in our world and help us spark positive conversations! 

Waste less

Facts are great, but better when we follow them up with action. This is why we'll also be sharing easy and meaningful tips for you to try at home. These will help you reduce your environmental footprint, eat better, and re-design your lifestyle along the principles of no waste. To prove that you're serious, share a photo of you taking action on social media with our hashtag #learnmorewasteless to inspire your community to follow suit. That way we can all make a bigger impact!

You could win fun and useful stuff 

Each week we’ll be giving away waste-free living items like nifty food storage options from Abeego and Stasher, plus awesome reusable water bottles from Hydroflask. All you have to do to win is take part in share a fact, or complete a tip. It's that easy! The more times you participate, the better a chance you have of winning! Additionally, we’ll be giving one lucky community member an entire MONTH OF FREE PRODUCE as our way of saying thanks for being an inspiring presence in the world. We’ll announce winners at the end of each week and the grand prize at the end of the month. 

The planet wins no matter what

Let's give our planet the hug it deserves! To date, we’ve saved 16 million pounds of produce from going to waste, and we dream of a day when this accomplishment feels small compared to what our community has done since then. Together we can make this dream a reality, starting this April We hope you’ll join us in making a loud and proud statement that leading a less wasteful life is one of the most fun, meaningful, and delicious things any of us can do. Cheers to what we’re going to accomplish together during Earth Month!
