Canadians are chronic food wasters.
In 2014 alone, we collectively wasted $31 billion in food, an increase of four billion dollars since 2010. That’s leaving a massive dent in our bank accounts that can easily be recovered; not to mention the harm it’s doing to the environment.
Luckily, the good folks at Cook Smarts have created a really simple way to minimize your food waste in the future. It won’t make you less inclined to buy takeout right after grocery shopping (we’ve all done it), but it will make you think twice before throwing something in the trash. Their super-informative infographic is a guide to how long all of your food will last in the freezer.
All you have to do is print it out, stick it on your fridge and Boom! Bank account: 1 Food waste: 0.
If you’re confused, simply click the image, download it off of Cook Smarts’ website, and then you’re ready to save some dough (literally). They also have a handy guide for keeping your produce fresh.
