As we approach these two anniversaries, what better time to call attention to how much single-use plastic we use every day.

Look to “Waste Not, Want Not” for other eco-friendly kitchen ideas in our newest issue of GRAZE magazine.

In honor of the 53rd anniversary of Outpost and Earth Day, they are hosting our “Earth Day Every Day” sampler on Saturday, April 15, from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. at all four Outpost locations. Folks can try food samples, enter to win prizes – and of course a free piece of Outpost Birthday Cake at noon!
