Reducing waste with solutions for sustainable living
@ the grocery store
When you're at the grocery store, remember to...
Buy 'ugly' fruit and veggies!
There is still a healthy, nutrient-dense treasure hiding underneath!
Even buy produce with small bruises that can be cut off.
By cutting off the bruise on a piece of produce, you are saving the whole piece of produce from being sent to the landfill to produce methane gas. The small cost of purchasing a piece of produce with a little bruise far outweighs the cost of not buying it!
Stick to your plan!
Even if there is a great sale (ie. buy 1 get 1 free, 3 for $5), do not buy extra food that will go to waste. You are not just throwing away food, but hard earned money too!
