The best option to get rid of your food waste
The question around what to do with your food waste can be tricky. Here is a list of ways to reduce its impact: 1. REDUCE: Obviously, the best way is to reduce the amount of food you need to throw away. But it's not always easy to get the right amount of food you'll actually need when doing your grocery shopping. Changes of plan gives life its spiciness I guess. 2. GIVE AWAY: So then you second best option is to give it to someone that may use it either to eat it or to feed their pets or chickens, if you are lucky enough to live in a rural area. 3. COMPOST: Also depending on where you live, your city may collect food waste for compost. Please participate in that program if this is the case. You can also start your own composting if you have an external space. There are also in-home options, but with smaller capacity. 4. GARBAGE DISPOSAL: if you have one (many older sinks do not) can be used to dispose of food. The food that you put down will likely end up in a wastewater treatment plant where food waste can be recycled and used to fertilize crops, which is why it’s better than going to the landfill where the same food waste will emit strong greenhouse gases, such as methane. The following items are known to clog the drain, so avoid to put them your garbage disposal: greasy items, such as butter or oil, pasta or rice, egg shells, celery, potatoes, orange or banana peels, or seeds. 4. LANDFILL: And last but not least, the least environmentally friendly option and last resort for disposing of food waste is putting food in the trash bin to go to the landfill.View the website
