How Your Healthy Diet May Be Hurting The Planet

Juicing is a popular trend with people trying to get in as much nutrition into their diet as easily and quickly as possible. To juice, the use of a variety of fruits and vegetables can be combined in a juicer to create unique, healthy juice mixtures. The problem with juicing comes after the juicing is done. The fiber and waste from all of the fruits and vegetables that are being juiced may end up in the landfill, which creates methane. 

What’s the easiest way to eliminate the waste from juicing? Eat your vegetables and fruit instead of juicing them. If you’re really in the mood for a smoothie, why not blend it in a blender where you can include the skin and fiber which would reduce the amount of waste? Still in the mood for just the juice? Start a compost! The best way to keep food scraps out of the landfill is to convert them into natural fertilizers.
