Tired of Food Waste?
Food waste is an epidemic in America and probably in many of the other first world countries throughout the world. There are many reasons for this problem. Food is getting cheaper and cheaper, so now people tend to undervalue these products. Also, people are so far removed from where their food comes from and how much work goes into it that again, people undervalue their food.
Recent developments in my life have made me realize how much money I am wasting through my food waste. Not only is food waste bad for the environment, but it’s bad for my budget. I’ve gotten better over the past few years, since I first moved out on my own. But with the help of my ultra organized mom, I am taking my mission to reduce food waste to a new level.
