Silvia elaborates, "The way we were raised, the culture we grew up in, the relationship we had with our parents and siblings and the types of music, books and movies we were exposed to, all played a part in forming our perception. Sometimes our perception changes by the people we meet, in this case ClerkenwellBoy inspired me to be more mindful when it comes to food.
It certainly didn't occur to me that the rotting leftovers in the back of the fridge indirectly have a big impact on the environment. By throwing away half a lasagna, half of the emissions that resulted from producing and processing, packaging, shipping, storing, and cooking the food are also wasted. I’ve learnt that reducing food waste is one of the most important things we can do to reverse global warming.
So, for #Lensonlife ClerkenwellBoy and I have created waste free recipes and a list of tips that will hopefully inspire you to reduce your food waste and our carbon footprint."
