Heather and Brittany talk to Luci Petlack, blogger behind Luci’s Morsels, about tackling food waste in your kitchen. Not only does managing food waste have a sustainability benefit, but there is also a huge economic element that makes it something everyone should work on.
Luci is a sustainable living blogger who shares her questions, struggles, and triumphs in living more mindfully. After becoming a mother for the first time, buying her first house, and moving to Sacramento, Luci transformed her longtime fashion and food blog into one with a bit more purpose. She has a penchant for comfortably chic style, great food, and travel. She lives in Sacramento with her husband and baby boy. When she’s not with her family, she’s usually writing, baking, planning a getaway, or scheming up more ways to live sustainably. No matter what she’s doing, however, she likely has coffee in her hand or on her mind!

This is the electric composter Luci mentions.
