STOP WASTING FOOD

Can you still hear your parents telling you to think of all of the starving children every time you trash that takeout you forgot to finish? With our busy lifestyles and so many yummy offerings at the supermarket, it’s pretty easy to end up literally throwing away pounds of food and money each week, a practice that is as bad for the environment as it is for your wallet. The good news is that all it takes to fix this problem is a little bit of a design change in your refrigerator. By setting up a fridge triage box, you can modify your behavior and that of your family by making it super obvious what needs to be eaten pronto before it goes bad. As simplistic as it may seem, this small addition to your kitchen can make a big difference in the amount of CO2 that results from food waste as well as on your annual grocery budget.
