    Food, Agriculture, and Land Use Zero-waste Cooking
    In North America, up to 65% of food waste happens at the consumer level. Chef Steven Satterfield advocates for utilizing every part of a vegetable. How can you incorporate using an entire vegetable, including the skins, tops, and stalks during your next meal prep?

    It's amazing to me how many people toss things out based on the "suggested" dates to generate more money for the product owner vs. minimizing waste and use

    Industry Recycle Everything I Can
    How could you incorporate other "R's" -- reduce, reuse, refuse, repair, repurpose, etc. -- into your lifestyle? How does considering implementing these "R's" make you feel?

    Reduce, reuse, refuse, repair, repurpose... being mindful of those means planning ahead when I shop. For me, this most often means buying from stores that have bulk bins (WinCo for the win!) and bringing my own reusable containers, which are in fact repurposed takeout containers.

    Knowing the difference between use by, sell by, and best by dates means not mindlessly discarding food because you assume it is no longer safe to eat. The bottom line - less food waste!

    Food, Agriculture, and Land Use Keep Track of Wasted Food
    An average American throws out about 240 lbs of food per year. The average family of four spends $1,500 a year on food that they throw out. How would you rather use this money?

    I would rather spend $1,500 on a vacation than on food that ends up being thrown out.
