The food industry is responsible for one-quarter of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions
The food on your plate has been on a journey; from being harvested, mixed, combined, packaged, and then shipped requires heaps of energy and cost.
We all need to rethink and question the way we food shop, what we eat and how we depose of it. We have pulled together some easy steps to help you and your family become conscious food shoppers while saving on the pennies!
Every household produces enough waste to create tons of compost, but to be able to make all of this ‘Black Gold’ we need to choose a compost bin or system that suits our needs. Here we summarise plastic, wooden, tumbler, bokashi and DIY options for composting bins.
In the many ways we try to be more sustainable in our everyday lives, many of us dismiss or forget about composting. We think it’s too impractical or we don’t see how it would help us live a more sustainable lifestyle. All the waste you could compost at home can just decompose in a landfill anyway, can’t it?
Well, it can’t – and that’s only the beginning of why recycling is so important to living sustainably in the 21stcentury.
