THROW IN MORE TASTE, THROW OUT LESS WASTE
How often are you tempted to throw something out whenever you look inside the fridge?
Sadly, much of the planet's food waste problem results from food being thrown into bins when they're still edible, with fruits and vegetables being the most wasted of all food groups(1). In fact, 45% of all produce goes to waste year after year(2), further putting a strain on landfills and the environment.
So how do we stop the cycle of wasting fruits and vegetables?
