At Straus we are passionate advocates of minimizing environmental waste. This includes food waste. The Environmental Protection Agency (@epagov) estimates that in 2018 about 68 percent of wasted food—or about 42.8 million tons—ended up in landfills or combustion facilities. The US Department of Agriculture (@usdagov) says the average family of four wastes about $1,500 worth of food each year.⁣

In addition to the staggering economic costs, when wasted food reaches landfills, it produces methane, a powerful greenhouse gas contributing to climate change.⁣

The good news is that we can all do our part to curtail food waste. Here are some simple tips:⁣

✅Plan grocery shopping carefully; purchase only what you need and will use.⁣
✅Plan your meals one week at a time and buy only the ingredients for those meals.⁣
✅Keep track of what’s in your refrigerator, freezer, and pantry so you don’t purchase items you already have at home.⁣
✅Explore ways to store fruits and vegetables to protect their freshness and ensure you use them before they spoil.⁣
✅Make good use of your freezer.⁣
✅Embrace the joy of leftovers that can be used in cooking casseroles, stir-fries or creating smoothies.⁣
✅If you don’t want to recycle, dispose of your food scraps in a responsible, sustainable way, such as composting. ⁣
(Effective this year in California, residents are required to toss excess food into green waste bins rather than the trash.)⁣

We can only imagine how delicious these apple galettes made with local organic Pink Lady apples and Straus Organic Vanilla Ice Cream tasted. ⁣⁣
