How To Reduce Food Waste at Home

Food waste has a significant impact on the environment, but reducing it starts with small changes at home. To help reduce your overall waste, we’ve pulled together some simple tips you can try at home.

<h2>1. Mindful meal planning</h2>

1. Mindful meal planning

Meal planning is key to cutting down on the waste that you generate. Planning your meals in advance will not only reduce food waste, but help you feel organised and excited for the meals to come. If you don’t have time for meal planning, you can use a meal kit delivery service like HelloFresh, which looks after all the planning, prepping and shopping. Reduced food waste will have the bin chickens in your street wondering where their breakfast, lunch and dinner went…
<h2>2. Store food correctly </h2>

2. Store food correctly

To make food last for as long as possible, it’s important to store it correctly. Using airtight containers and ensuring that food is stored at the right temperature and the right place (by having oldest ingredients at the front, newest at the back), can keep them fresher for longer. Fewer scraps ending up in the garbage, means the bin chickens will have to actually stick to their natural diet.
<h2>3. Buy only what you need</h2>

3. Buy only what you need

Stick to buying only what you need when grocery shopping for the week. A good tip to make sure you are only feeding your household (and not the Australian bin chicken population) is to make a list, and never shop on an empty stomach. Ensuring you buy only what is needed is easy with HelloFresh as the ingredients come pre-portioned – meaning everything in your box ends up on your plate. No leftovers in the bin means the bin chickens will have to reclaim their rightful name as the White Ibis!
