Discarded food is a huge problem: it leads to overproduction, waste and thus to many climate-damaging emissions. With the right behaviour, however, food waste in the household can be reduced to a minimum. It’s not just what you buy that counts, but how you buy it.
How to store food properly.
When coming home with your groceries, you should not blindly put it in the fridge or in the storage room. Proper, food-specific storage helps to reduce food spoilage. In addition, shopping can be prevented from being overlooked and forgotten. Above all, food with a short shelf life should be stored in a clearly visible place.
The ideal solution: A “eat first” shelf in the refrigerator in which all foods that need to be eaten promptly or are about to run out are collected.

Conscious shopping – conscious living
Do you want to be more sustainable and climate-friendly in your everyday life? You can start by preparing a list for your next visit to the supermarket so that you’ll only buy what you really need.
Are you excited to start nibbling from the “eat first” shelf as well?
