This month, we will be featuring several blog posts focusing on one of the hottest topics in the industry: Food-Waste. As we dive deep into the ideas surrounding this important issue, we look forward to connecting with our followers about the roles and responsibilities we each have as we work together to make a difference. If you are actively working to reduce Food-Waste in your life, be sure to comment and share your strategies. We look forward to hearing from you!
In today’s post, we thought it would be fun to share a few of our favourite ways to reduce food-waste by making the most of food-scraps. If you’ve been following us for awhile, you’re probably well aware that our team loves compost. But before we use compost to give back to the earth, we believe in following the food-waste hierarchy to reduce food-waste at the source.
