Using up leftovers helps the environment

Food lasts longer
than we think.

When we store food just right, it lasts longer.


And luckily, we’ve got the tricks to help.

It’s okay for veggies to wilt and soften. Really. It
happens with time and doesn’t mean they’re bad.

quick tricks to keep food better, longer:

watermelon
  1. HERBS

    Keep herbs like cut flowers – with their stems in a glass of water.

  2. AVOCADOS

    Place ripe avocados in the fridge, they’ll last longer.

  3. FLOUR

    Keep flour fresher almost twice as long by freezing it.

  4. CHEESE

    Wrap leftover cheese loosely in wax paper, not plastic.

  5. BROWN SUGAR

    Use a slice of bread to soften up hardened brown sugar.
