Composting is a great option for kitchen trimmings, and food that has already spoiled. It reduces your impact on the landfill, and preserves the resources and nutrients for future use. But composting also takes resources and energy to create – including all of the energy, water, and fuel that went into growing and transporting the food in the first place!
So, what’s even better?
- Buying only as much food as you need (don’t forget your shopping list!).
- Storing your food properly so that it doesn’t spoil.
- And eating leftovers before they spoil.
