WasteNot









Let's Work Together to Prevent Food Waste

Food waste is a huge problem. On average 30-40% of America's food supply is wasted. That’s an average of $1600 per family per year. 


The WasteNot store is an initiative by Trashless and its partners to address some areas of this vast problem, while bringing you high quality products at attractive discounts . . . 


From dairy products to produce, WasteNot store features just-in-time inventory of products with about half the typical regularly priced fresh food items. 


This allows our partners and us to help great perishable food and beverages to get to people who want it, instead of it going to waste.

Core Problem: Lack of an Economic Engine

A large part of food waste, especially perishable items such as produce, dairy and prepared foods, occurs because there is no economic incentive for farmers, producers and distributors to bring those items to market or to donation centers. 


Perishable food is already an extremely tough business. So a lot of it just gets dumped instead of being donated or otherwise consumed.

The Experiment

The WasteNot store from Trashless is an attempt to fix this. We are working with producers and distributors to put up their unsold perishable items here at or above cost. We then get those items to customers, also at cost to us. 


Result we are hoping for: A minimum viable economic engine that ensures everyone in the supply chain at least recovers their costs. And you, the customer, get items you desire and can use before they spoil, at an attractive discount. 


No one wins big necessarily, but we all work together to reduce food waste and all of its ills - which contributes to our mission of a Trashless world.

Why Not Donate It?

The food waste problem is huge and nuanced, and occurs at various points in the supply chain. WasteNot is an attempt to address food waste that occurs at points in the supply chain that donations to food banks often cannot address because of logistical constraints. 


We have nothing but admiration for food banks and the producers who donate to them. In fact we ourselves do and will continue to donate to them.

Never Expired or Spoiled 

You will never receive items already expired or very close to it. Remember, usually items have a lot longer shelf life than printed on the packaging - just saying.
