Imagine walking out of the grocery store holding all of your food for the week in three heavy bags. Now imagine dropping one of those shopping bags and leaving it in the parking lot every single time you go shopping. Sound wasteful? That’s a visual example of how much food is wasted either intentionally or unintentionally in the world.
An average of 30% of all food goes uneaten and the US is the global leader in this category, wasting more than $161 billion of food every year. Staggering numbers, we know, but luckily, there are very simple steps you can take to do your part to reduce this amount of food waste. Not only is reducing food waste a wonderful practice considering many people in our own communities are starving, but it can help you to save money, keep your home clean and perhaps even translate into healthier habits.
