15 April 2016 8:05am – Food Waste

And there is absolutely nothing wrong with them taste-wise! Don’t be wasteful: a wrinkle in the skin isn’t going to hurt you, and if it has a blemish/bruise, just cut it off and use the rest. Previous generations have survived being frugal, so can we.

We need to stop this crazy trend for perfectionism; it is very unsustainable (we don’t have the endless resources to support throwing out over a fifth of that produce) and completely unneccessary.

If you live on the southside of Bris, the Rochedale Markets (its actually a green grocer) on Rochedale Road stocks mostly ‘seconds’ at heavily discounted prices. Why not check it out? :)
