2. Pay Attention to What’s In Your Garbage
It can be an adjustment at first to really understand what and how much food you waste. Paying attention to what’s in your garbage can help you identify what you’re wasting and figure out what can be avoided. No matter what you see, adjust your habits accordingly. You might have to cut down on how much of something you cook, buy less of something you’ve thrown out without using, store items in airtight containers to prevent them from going stale, or compost or freeze parts of vegetables you don’t eat.
