Do not throw me away
Planning, using leftovers, preserving. Simple strategies to combat food throwing away.
According to a WWF study, around a third of all food produced is thrown away - an incredible amount. But that's not all, because it also means that 50% of the cultivated land has been farmed for nothing and that 50% more fertilizer, pesticides and energy have been used as a result. With the food saving book "don't throw me away" the idea portal smarticular.net shows how we can counteract food waste, and not only in our own household, but along the entire value chain. After all, a large part of the waste already takes place during production, processing, transport and trade.
Even small changes can make a big difference: using leftovers, using fewer finished products or not only paying attention to the best-before date for yogurt and the like, but also letting our noses decide. More time-consuming, but definitely worthwhile, is the creation of a meal plan for the week, which immediately provides the shopping list. Last but not least, it is also important to store food correctly. And if you have bought too much or the harvest in the garden is particularly plentiful, various methods of preservation help to ensure that less food spoils or has to be thrown away.
For all these areas, the book provides instructions, tips and a large collection of recipes for processing leftovers without residues, for preserving or for processing large quantities. A seasonal calendar in the back cover of the book helps with meal planning, and in your region you know yourself best and know where the nearest market or farm store is.
smarticular.net – From the Net into a Book.
Usually, there is a website in addition to a film, book, etc. Here it’s the other way round: The ideas portal smarticular.net was launched first and quickly became a digital reference address for eco-friends and the health-conscious, providing tips, ideas and recipes for sustainable living. Committed people who want to take things into their own hands, do them themselves and try them out to make their lives a little easier and greener visit the page. Now the team behind the portal has turned the online guide into several printed publications. The book series “Selber machen statt kaufen” (Do it yourself instead of buying), for example, reveals to its readers shopping alternatives and approaches to sustainable living. The smarticular team focuses on topics like home remedies, saving plastic, or avoiding waste in the manuals.
