The average American family of four throws away more than $1600 a year in wasted food. It is important that we learn to keep our food fresh for longer, and reduce the amount of waste we produce. Most people use cellophane wrap to store food. Unfortunately this generates a lot of non-recyclable plastic waste.
Buy only what you will actually eat (our tip is to do grocery shopping with a full stomach to avoid cravings). Cook only the right amount of food to avoid leftovers, but if you do have some leftovers, make sure to store them with reusable covers, instead of plastic cellophane wrap.
