What’s the best way to eat the food in your fridge?
We all want to do better, but some foods end up lost in the back of the fridge or hidden in a drawer. Despite our best efforts, we throw out up to 40 percent of the food we buy. More food is wasted in our homes than any other part of the supply chain, with consumers wasting more food than restaurants and grocery stores combined.
According to the National Resources Defense Council, “each year, the average family of four wastes an average of 1,000 pounds of food at home, resulting in at least $1,500 lost.” This means that, individually, we each toss out over 20 pounds of food every month. Not only does this impact our household budget, but it also has a huge impact on our environment. Wasted food equates to wasted water, energy, production, land use, added transportation emissions, and labor.
The good news is that you can take steps to reduce food waste. By learning how to keep food fresh longer, you can make the most out of the food in your fridge.
