The Waste Not Want Not Wednesday link-up party is inspired by World Food Day (Oct. 16), and recent articles such as this one that show between 40-51% of food in Canada and America ends up in the garbage. Over-consumption, lack of knowledge, low cost and over purchasing are common causes of food waste in North America. This unsustainable over-consumption extends to so many aspects of our lives.
So perhaps if we all share our tips for consuming a little less stuff in general, cooking more responsibly and frugally, and living eco-friendly, we can each take a small part in making our world a little more sustainable.
And besides, who couldn't save a little bit of $$$ anyway?
Sorry I didn't get a chance to pin everyone last week, I've been busy prepping as I'm leaving for Greece tomorrow for 2 weeks, so this week's WNWNW will last 2 weeks while I'm away.
* Also, I've noticed recently that some linked posts pertain to wheat and other glutinous products. Please stay true to the link party rules, keep it gluten free and don't forget to add a link back to the party on your post (those that don't will not be eligible for features here or on my social media sites, and repeat offenders will have their posts removed). Thank you!
