10 Simple Actions You Can Take to Help the Environment
1. Clean the mess.
2. Plants make everyone happy.
3. Waste not thy food.
In terms of food waste, there are some things we can do as well. I learned this trick recently: With fresh produce, give it a wash before you put it in the fridge. It will last longer. Carleigh Bodrug from PlantYou shares lots of scrappy cooking ideas on her website. Often we can take broccoli stems and other veggie parts we typically discard and add them to a soup but you can get creative like Carleigh. And if you have a bunch of fruits that are starting to get way too soft, make a smoothie. I like to cut bananas in chunks (without the skin) and pop them in the freezer so I can blend them into an ice-cream. You'll be surprised how creamy it is.
