COP 28


Become a smart shopper

Sustainable living or living green also means wasting less. Food waste is a huge problem.

Plan your shopping: use a shopping list with weekly meals in mind to buy what you really need. Shop your fridge and cupboards first to check what you have in stock. Large quantities on special discounts and “Family packs” are often cheaper but beware of marketing gimmicks. You haven’t saved anything if you must throw too much away! You don’t know what to do with the cauliflower rice pack you got as a new year’s resolution, one lemon, and parsley leaves? Look online for recipes with only these ingredients.

Share food with your neighbours, make new friends and save food from being thrown away. By doing so, you saved money, and time, ate healthier and became more popular!
