As we approach the holiday season, it's a good time to think about reducing food waste. Planning your meals ahead of time, eating leftovers, and freezing food before it goes bad can make a large impact. The USDA estimates that in America about 30-40% of the food supply is wasted.
A little bit of planning can help you, the consumer, save money, reduce methane emissions, and conserve energy and resources. ‘Tis the season to give back to your community and think about those less fortunate, so why not donate untouched food (that would have gone to waste) to a local food bank?
Here are some helpful ways to reduce food waste at home, provided by the US EPA. If you are feeling further inspired, you can also check out their Food: Too Good To Waste toolkit. Ending food waste - that's something we can all toast to!
