Reducing your organic waste, including kitchen scraps, is a simple but incredibly effective way to impact your community—lowering greenhouse gas emissions and helping to create a more sustainable planet.

Play your part in organic waste reduction with these helpful tips:

  1. When grocery shopping, purchase mindfully to avoid wasted food. Create meal plans and shopping lists before your grocery trip so you only buy what you need.
  2. Store your produce at appropriate temperatures, and utilize prep and storage tools and containers to ensure its longevity. 
  3. Whip up new recipes with your food scraps. Repurpose leftovers into sandwiches, casseroles, and more.
  4. Share food that would otherwise be wasted with friends or neighbors.
