6:39 am
one year. the money you spend on that food could be considered trash too. to help the environment and your wallet, shop smart. before going to the grocery store, check out what is in your fridge. cook or eat what you have before you buy more. make a shopping list and plan menus. buying in bulk can help you save money but only if you use what you buy. before produce goes bad, cook it. take home your leftovers, you maximize your spending, and cut down on waste. before you clean out your pantry, think about donating untouched, non-perishable food. that will can help a food pantry keep it shelves stocked. and instead of tossing your food in a trash bin, start a compose pile. those scraps, skins, peels, and grounds, can de compose into rich soil, which is great for your garden. taking some simple stems to reduce your food waste improves the environment, bottom line, and yours too.
