Food Waste is a major problem. Here's a tip: Use a Vacuum Sealer and refrigerate or freeze your leftovers and bulk buys. And be sure to label them! Vacuum sealing will dramatically increase the freshness of your foods. You will still have to be proactive and keep tabs on your fridge and freezer.
Healthy soils are the foundation of the food system. Our soils are the basis for agriculture and the medium in which nearly all food-producing plants grow. Healthy soils produce healthy crops that in turn nourish people and animals. Indeed, soil quality is directly linked to food quality and quantity.

Meat production especially releases green house gases in to the atmosphere and clear the trees that manage the gases for more space, pushing up the natural temperature of the earth.
