What Can You Do?

Household waste is the leading cause of food waste in Canada. In our homes we produce 21 percent of all food waste, coming second only to processing and manufacturing at 43 percent. So what can you do to help create a more sustainable food system and become more responsible as consumers?

  1. Store food properly so it lasts longer

  2. Plan, make ahead, and freeze meals

  3. Organize your fridge/freezer

  4. Keep a waste log

  5. Compost excess waste
