Let's Prevent Food Waste!
Three ways of Preventing Food Waste
All locks need keys to unlock them, and the invisible locks of tradition often need more than one key to open. As a nation, we have been locked into traditional ways of dealing with food; we sell the pretty produce and discard the ugly produce. We are locked into a mind-set that tells us the misshapen apple, potato or tomato somehow doesn’t taste as good as its’ good-looking counterpart. The looks may leave something to be desired, but the flavor remains the same. We also think it is okay to waste food by discarding dinner remains, leaving extra food on the restaurant table, instead of recycling them. That ugly piece of produce and discarded extra food are going to end up in a landfill adding to the methane gas problem while someone goes to bed hungry tonight. We must unlock this mind-set that it is okay to waste food. Outside2Inside (O2I) plan to raise awareness and mindfulness of this food waste issue through 3 awareness programs:
Self-awareness is the first key needed to start unlocking age-old traditional mind-sets. By going through the process of looking within we can begin to understand our-self better and see outwardly from a clearer perspective. Self-awareness will enable us to find solutions to everyday, including food waste. Use these tools to help unlock your self-awareness and start a journey within…….
The second key to unlocking the way we see this problem is to provide a local vision for reducing food waste. We will raise public awareness and understanding about the impact of food waste through education. By providing answers regarding how food waste impacts our health, environment and what we can do to provide more sustainable food sources, we will raise community……
