One way my family and I help protect the environment is by reducing our food waste. Reducing wasted food helps to conserve resources and energy that went into producing, processing, transporting, preparing, storing and disposing the purchased food. It also helps to cut down greenhouse gas that is emitted from food decomposing in landfills. Not to mention we also save money by buying only what we need! By reducing food waste, we can build a sustainable food future together, especially if we act now.
