Welcome to before breakfast a production of iHeartRadio.

Good morning. This is Laura. Welcome to the before breakfast podcast. Today's tip is to see what gets thrown away. So you can increase efficiency and reduce waste.

If you went to Camp as a kid, you may have vivid memories of a common experiment being asked to collect the food that your table didn't eat at dinner and weighing it gross for sure. It's also I opening most people waste food without realizing it weigh and what you throw away is one way of drawing your attention to how much you waste so you can do better in the future.

You can do something similar at home or at work, but without the X Factor from the camp experiment every now and then take a peek at your trash cans and see what gets thrown away. No need for all out dumpster diving just take a look and notice what's in there. For example, your kitchen garbage can May reveal that you're throwing away a lot of fruits and veggies that the common problem. Maybe it turns out that you're buying more produce than you need or maybe you had good intentions of eating those salad greens, but they went limp before lunchtime on Friday. Once you identify the problem. You can come up with a plan like going to the grocery store more often or planning your meals to eat the most perishable food first.

Another common realization you're throwing away. Lots of food from plates a better approach might be serving people a little less. They can always go back for seconds. So there's no need to overfill plates the first time around

maybe your trash features an astonishing number of Ziploc bags. Could you buy a few more glass storage containers? So you need to use plastic less often or as you picking your kids trash cans, you may notice lots of paper getting thrown away, encourage your kids to color on both sides of the paper and connect that behavior to preserving the pretty trees in your neighborhood park.

At work a been full of file folders and binder clips in nuts you to set an office Norm for reusing office supplies, whether people care about the environment or not. They probably rather have that money in paychecks they going into the trash.

If you survey what you're throwing away every now and then you can adjust what you buy and adjust how you use it. So that you're wasting less this save money and is better for the Earth and well feels efficient and I'm all about living a more streamlined life.
