Food

A large part of a household’s garbage is usually food and its packaging. Try to reduce packaging by buying in bulk and using refillable containers at local bulk/health food stores. Refuse excess packaging when you can. Use fresh food (from farmers’ market when in season) and buy only what you can use. When at the supermarket, choose locally grown produce whenever possible. Not only will you be getting fresher and tastier produce, you will be supporting local farmers and reducing the environmental impact when products are shipped from the southern U.S., Mexico and South America. Compost all your leftover organics (Link to compost-ables) either in a home composter, or in a community composting plan. Excess food can be donated to your local Food Bank. (We need information on where these are in our community-please contact us). In future, instead of composting we will probably use community bio-digesters.
