Call it thrifty or old fashion, but to cut kitchen waste you’ll need to cook like grandma used to. It’s easy, doesn’t take much extra time and the reward is eco-friendly goodness.
4 Waste Cutting Kitchen Tips
- Use up leftovers. You don’t have to eat the same thing over and over; try incorporating them into new recipes instead of letting them sit in the fridge.
- Don’t go to restaurants or order take-out. By cooking at home you’ll save money, and you’ll avoid the waste from extra take-out packaging.
- Don’t just cook. Cook from scratch. Whole, natural ingredients are better for you. Avoid the pre-packaged stuff, and you’ll avoid preservatives, additives and the wasted packaging material.
- Be thrifty. But don’t be thrifty by buying cheap stuff. Try to pick appliances and other big items that are durable & will last you a long time.
