People, who work in the kitchen on a daily basis, might notice that there is a lot of kitchen waste that comes out on an everyday basis. This is normal, but we need to take steps to reduce the kitchen waste as much as possible. Taking a few steps towards reducing waste is not just good for the environment, but will also help you to save on a lot of grocery shopping and you might also end up saving. Here are a few tips that you can take to reduce the kitchen waste.
1. Plan your meals – Most of us do not do this, but if you plan for the entire week as to what to cook on which day, you will surely save on a lot of grocery. Also make sure that you use leftover food in the subsequent meals.
2. Organize your fridge – Make sure that you organize the things on your fridge and keep the food items in the front, which are about to expire soon. In this way you can make use of them quickly and can avoid throwing them off once they are spoiled.
3. Have proper knowledge of storing different food items – Different food items have different ways to be stored. A number of people hardly follow the storing tips and store as they like. This spoils the food items fast and people end up throwing them. For Instance, green vegetables can be chopped and be stored in a freezer bag and this will also help you save a lot of space.
4. Utilize waste to make compost – People who have access to a ground or mud can make a pit and start tossing the biodegradable food waste in it. Keep putting a layer of mud regularly and keep filling it till be is filled. After about six months you will get a good compost that can be used as a good fertilizer for your plants and trees at home or the kitchen garden.
