1. Your freezer is your BFF
Your freezer is one of the best waste reducing tools you have at home, learn how to use it!
Try making foods you would normally purchase from the store. Investing a bit more time cooking can save waste from food packaging. Products like nut milks, hummus, and granola can all be easily made yourself. Make it fun! Schedule a date night or friend hangout and choose one item you both regularly purchase from the grocery store and make it together.
3. Vote with your $$$
Maybe you are too busy to take on a DIY food project, but you can use your $$$ to support companies that value sustainability while you shop for groceries. Consumers can increase the number of sustainable food companies in the industry, increasing market demand. Purchase products that use sustainable ingredients, support regenerative agriculture and offset their carbon footprint. This doesn’t just apply to food! Choose sustainable companies to purchase home goods, clothing and more.
