Some other steps to eating environmentally friendly are:
- Eating it raw- Instead of boiling vegetables eat them raw to save the energy it would take to use the appliances to cook them.
- Grow your own- Join a community garden or start your own in your backyard.
- Re-use leftovers- Instead of throwing leftovers away, make a new meal out of it. Besides reducing waste it will also save energy that you would have used to cook a whole new meal.
- Double your recipes- The leftovers will last twice as long and you will save energy from cooking other unnecessary meals.
