You may have heard that sustainability is a part of learning at Green Camp. What is sustainability?
Sustainability, involves the capacity to maintain our current resources, with a focus on preserving them for future generations. An example of practicing sustainability includes minimizing food waste.
Here are several strategies to minimize food waste:
- Create a shopping list before heading to the grocery store and stick to it!
- Purchase only the necessary items; check your pantry and fridge prior to compiling your shopping list.
- Utilize the freezer for certain food items that can be stored for later use. For instance, instead of discarding overripe bananas, freeze them for smoothies.
- Preserve leftovers and incorporate them into future meals. Consider using them in soups, salads, or stir-fries.
These strategies, of course, require consistent implementation. Let’s contribute to a more environmentally friendly Earth and ensure its sustainability for future generations!
