Steps to Recycle Your Food Waste Better
Food waste can make up half of the contents of a waste bin.
When food scraps end up in landfill it produces methane. If this gas is not captured, a greenhouse gas 25 times more potent than CO2 is released.
Food and liquids can't go in the recycling bin - it ruins the recycling process.
Check what food you already have.
Plan your meals for the week.
Make a shopping list and stick to it.
Make lunch from leftovers.
Freeze fruit for smoothies.
Freeze veggie scraps for homemade snacks.
Start composting, set up a worm farm, get a Bokashi bucket or donate your food scraps to a community garden.
