Don’t toss those overripe or past-their-prime fruit and veggies — they make great, nutritional smoothies. Even the pickiest eaters won’t notice imperfections when blended into a delicious drink. You can chop them up and freeze them so they’re ready to blend when you need them. It’s a great way to reduce food waste.
Why is reducing food waste so important? When landfilled, organic waste decomposes and generates methane, a greenhouse gas contributing to climate change. Organic waste prevention and composting are real ways you can help mitigate climate change.
