5 Easy Ways to Reduce Waste in your Kitchen
Even though I’ve burned two non-stick pans beyond repair before, I can confidently say that I know my way around the kitchen now. Before my green awakening, I’d bring my own reusable tote bag to the supermarket so that I could get a $0.10 discount. And even though the discount has long since been revoked (to my dismay and confusion), I still bring my own bag. Bringing your own bag is one of the easiest ways to be a little more eco-friendly, and here are 5 more ways to make your kitchen a little greener, reduce your food waste, and save money in the process!
