Have you heard about the simple thing we can all do to REALLY help the environment (let alone our pocketbooks)? Throw less food away! Less glamorous than driving a car fueled by cooking oil, or even composting, being mindful of the food we don’t end up eating is something we all need to do a lot more of. It might be as simple as shopping for groceries more often so you don’t buy as much, which means less food goes bad in the fridge. Or this idea can extend to eating all parts of an animal, not just the classic popular cuts.
We’re excited about American Wasteland, a book that came out last Fall (you’ll find it for sale in our book section). This article in NY Times gives a good overview of some key ideas from the book.
