How to wage war on food waste - 0 views

  •  
    The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) estimates that Americans waste 30 percent of all edible food produced, bought, and sold in this country, although it acknowledges that this figure is probably low.Part of the problem is the heterogeneous nature of food waste -there is no single culprit, just many diffuse sources that add up to a slow and steady bleed on the economy and the environment. This site tells us what we already know, just some random helpful information in there that is fun and good to know.
  •  
    Everyone is responsible for food being wasted the biggest contributors being cafeteria's, restaurants, and grocery stores. The first steps to wage war on food waste are to buy conservatively and make just enough instead of to much. Also to embrace the three R's reduce, reuse, and recycle.

TLC Home "50 Ways to Never Waste Food Again" - 2 views

  •  
    Great tips on how to cut down food waste. Cutting food waste how it helps you make yummy food in the kitchen. The last one is important to read.
  •  
    Original: "Use it up, wear it out, make do, or do without" is a favorite adage in both frugal and green circles, and it is something I strive to live by. One of the best ways to "use it up" is to think differently about our food and ways to avoid wasting it. Lloyd wrote a great post a while back about the statistics for how much food we waste in the U.S., and the numbers are, frankly, appalling. On average, we waste 14% of our food purchases per year, and the average American family throws out over $600 of fruit per year. Paraphrase: Half the loaf of bread goes stale and the grapes aren't as fresh. With an attitude to stop waste and some creativity, you can create new things with your food before it actually goes bad. Left over roasted vegetable can be made into soup and leftover rice can be added into oatmeal the next morning. There are many more ways to reduce waste in your home.
