By daniele

In circular economy, we can all help achieve the national food waste reduction objective to cut food waste by 50% by 2030. Start applying these methods to prevent food waste, save money, and help the environment cleaner and maintain the ecology of environment. Due to climate changes Every year, we discard 7 million tons of food and drink from our homes, much of which could have been consumed. It costs us £12.5 billion every year and is also harmful to the environment. Here are some of our best food waste-reduction suggestions.

When go to the Grocery Store or Eating Out

  Before going to the grocery store, prepare ahead and make a shopping list. Consider what meals you’ll be preparing the following week when you make your list and check your refrigerator to see what you currently have.

Avoid unusably things

Buy what you require and stick to your shopping list when shopping. Be cautious when shopping in bulk, especially for commodities with a short shelf life.

Purchase fresh and healthy food

 Purchase fresh fruits or veggies frequently left behind at the grocery store but are safe to consume if available. Physical flaws are present in “ugly” produce, but it is neither damaged nor rotten. “Ugly” fruits and vegetables are safe and healthy, and they can occasionally be found at a discount.

in hotels and restaurants

 When eating out, ask for smaller servings to avoid wasting your plate and overeating. Instead of leaving food on your plate, you might ask for a take-away box to take leftovers home.

In the home suggestions to prevent the food to be waste 

 Make good use of your refrigerator.

Some foods last longer when not refrigerated. Bread (kept in a cold, dark spot like a bread bin or pantry), bananas, pineapples, potatoes, and onions are examples.Many leftovers and cooled convenience foods can be frozen as well. If you’ve created a sauce-based dish like pasta or rice, freezing the sauce separately is preferable.

 Keep track of your portions.

Cut down on waste by only preparing what you need. Measuring eliminates the guessing and increases the likelihood of getting the correct amount.

 Resurrect stale bread 

 Are your bread rolls past their prime? To crisp them up again, place them in the oven for a few minutes. You may also turn stale bread into breadcrumbs and use them as a stuffing for chicken or a topping for baked fish. You can also freeze the breadcrumbs for later use. Bread loaves also freeze well. If you’re freezing a loaf or rolls from an in-store bakery, place them in a freezer bag rather than freezing them in their original packaging for better results.
