Description

THE POWER OF FOOD

As individuals how can we take action to support a healthy planet and climate? Food is a great place to start. Shop for food from local farms and producers that take care of their workforce and land, reduce food waste and unnecessary packaging.

I offer these Free workshop at Good Earth Natural Foods in Mill Valley the first Tuesday every few months at 10:00 AM. Approximately 1 1/2 hours

DESCRIPTION

Good Earth Natural Foods is an ideal place to buy the healthiest food available and to know where our food is coming from. Please join me while we walk through all of the departments of the store and learn how to move towards a non-disposable life from Farm to Waste Stream. Here are a few of the topics we will discuss while touring the store.

  • Global food waste- Approxamatly 30%- 40% of all food that is grown is thrown away and 90% ends up in our landfil?

  • What's our part? Individually we throw away 1/3 of what we buy at the store. We can look at ways to avoid that.

  • The variety of options for buying food in less packaging including buying in bulk.

  • What “tare” weight is and the simple steps to use your own containers, cloth bags and jars to purchase food.

  • learn how to manage your waste stream from using your green can for compost, proper recycling and landfill.

  • Why recycling plastic is confusing and is not the answer, by understanding how our waste stream/resources works, it is essential in moving towards a zero waste society.

  • How to organize your kitchen and properly store food once you bring it home.

  • Why these practices can also save you food dollars.
