OUR ZERO WASTE JOURNEY
Hello! Our names are Brian and Beth, and as avid gardeners and nature lovers, we enjoy living in the country with our youngest son and two dogs. Our little 5-acre farm is full of life and wonder. We have free-range egg-laying chickens, beautiful wild turkeys, rabbits, owls, hawks, skunks, raccoons, and squirrels on our property.
We grow much of our own food in our large gardens that have been fortified with our favorite zero-waste product, compost. Every year we make a hundred+ of yards of top-quality compost using local materials like manures, leaves, and wood chips. This compost is returned to the Earth while providing life and nutrients to the soil.
Our passion for living simply is the foundation for Zero Waste Outlet, and we hope you join us in making the world a better place!
Beth & Brian Twilegar
Born and raised in Idaho I have a passion for the outdoors and enjoy camping, fishing, and star-filled nights by the fire. My grandfather and father both loved gardening and taught me to appreciate the natural processes that our world needs to sustain life.
From the time I was 14, my father and I grew vegetables for the local farmer's market. We both worked hard to make sure our produce was the best available and we took pride in knowing that our food was grown in the same soil as my grandfather's food. After all, it was my grandfather who added leaves and grass to the soil for over 20 years that made the soil so fertile.
Our gardening business took a turn for the better when we started to introduce heirloom vegetables from around the world to our customers. The hard part was convincing our customers that the world's ugliest tomato was also the world's best tasting tomato! But once we gave them a sample, we had the most loyal customers at the market!
Years later and after my father died of cancer, my wife Beth and I moved to the country to live simply and to teach our children about living in harmony with nature and the rewards of hard work.
With 5 acres, we are able to grow all the food we could ever eat. What we don't eat is given to friends and family or food banks. Our small acreage also makes it possible for me to make compost from local plant and animal waste that I build our soil with, just like my grandfather and father did!
Born in Arizona, raised in Northern California, and transplanted to Idaho in my early 20s, I have found my calling in the quiet farmland outside the busy city life. Coming from a big city, I instantly fell in love with Idaho and the people in it. Both of our sons were raised here, and I know that this is the perfect place to raise a family. From the sunsets to our wonderful neighbors, I enjoy the simplicity that our small farm provides our family.
Starting in my teens, I began cooking and collected many of my family's recipes from my mom, who had some of my grandmother's recipes. I soon fell in love with the idea that my cooking brought joy to the people closest to me, and I realized that food is my love language.
Since moving to the country and growing our own food, I'm spoiled with the freshest food any cook could imagine! Collecting eggs every day and then walking to the garden and harvesting fresh greens and herbs to use in our next meal makes my heart happy!
Our family's love for fresh organic food and all things natural, this soon developed our understanding of the wasteful habits we were still practicing. We recycled and composted regularly but found that most of the plastic we were throwing into the recycling bin, was not recyclable. This revelation forced us to take a closer look at the amount of plastic we used.
We started using glass jars instead of plastic cups, brewing coffee in a french press instead of our plastic coffee maker, and so on. Brian and I stopped buying cheap products that didn't last as long as we hope they would, and we made an effort to buy things that either lasted the rest of our life, or that were Eco-Friendly. This lifestyle change slowly turned into our very own online store, Zero Waste Outlet, and we are proud to offer Earth-Friendly products that we believe in!
