From Earth Month Challenge: 30 Easy Actions:
Day 13: Have a Zero Waste Food Day.
This one will take some focus. I’ve never insisted my family “clean their plates” if they’re not hungry, but I can still address Zero Food Waste. Come to think of it, my habit of using the last drops of leftover coffee to water my plants prevents dumping it down the drain. That counts. A few more suggestions:
- Serve realistic portions.
- Save leftovers to eat or add to another leftover later.
- Serve carrots scrubbed, not peeled.
- Save odd scraps for broth.
It’s all fairly practical. We can do this.
