Small Act of Green Rebellion: Eat imperfect products.
More than 40% of food grown is not eaten and all that food turns into CO2 in landfills. If food waste was a country it would be the third worst contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, only trailing behind the US and China. Imperfect Foods is looking to remove the not-so-perfect produce and foods from the waste stream and bring them to consumers at a fraction of the price.
Madeline Rotman, Head of Sustainability at Imperfect Foods, talks to us about how the company has pivoted during COVID and tells us what her favorite product is to order every month (it's my new fav as well). Check out their blog, The Whole Carrot, as well as their podcast, Unwasted, for more tips on how to reduce food waste in your home.
