Two Mothers and a Great Idea

Okay, what an awesome idea–check out Two Mothers Foods in Naperville, Illinois.

This is a sort of lunch-shop-catering-business (honestly, so far it looks more cater-y than lunch-shop-y, but I hope they’re able to get a good following!) in nearby Naperville, which uses almost all local and organic ingredients, shops local markets, and generates no waste. ¬†Everything they sell is in glass jars or cloth bags or what-have-you, and they recycle scraps and leftovers for broths and to feed the animals on the farms they source from. ¬†Imagine that–veggie scraps going into the pot to make the next batch of soup, rather than getting tossed or even composted, which would still be a good idea…seems like a no-brainer, but how many individuals, let alone businesses, actually do it!

Unfortunately, they are far enough from my home-to-workplace commute that I won’t be able to patronize them regularly…but I wanted at least to give them a good shout-out! Anyone who reads this who lives or works near Naperville, who ever checks this place out, please come back and comment with a report!

In the meantime–snaps for a business model I wish more people would follow.
