THE THREE R’S THAT CAN SAVE US
We’re probably throwing out more food/money than we realize. We all do…but few of us recognise this and fewer still admit to it! In fact each of us throws away on average 120kg of food a year. but what can you and I do about it?? Do I really waste food?
The following three R’s can save us!!!
REDUCE – food wastage by buying more efficiently. Take a list with you to the grocery store; you’re less likely to buy items that you won’t use. Even better option is to plan your meals for a week which eases out shopping and cooking both.
REUSE- unwanted item where possible instead of disposing them
Donate any unopened non-perishable items that you definitely won’t use. Clean out your fridge/freezer/cupboards on a somewhat regular basis and use anything that is getting near to the manufacturers “best by” date.
RECYCLE – compost
Use any leftover food,use your creativity. If at times you have brought a vegetable, it already started spoiling so can’t reuse it, you’re down to “recycle”, that’s where composting comes in, possibly some nice soil will magically appear.
Just THINK.EAT.SAVE: Reduce your foodprint!
Save Food, Save Environment and Save Lives………
So now you are aware about the 3R’s!
