4 Tips for Reducing Food Waste
Before you order your food, consider these questions:
How much do you normally eat?
How hungry are you at the moment?
When a good deal comes along, it might seem like better value to buy a larger quantity. But, if the food is thrown away anyway, does that really matter?
Ask for a Downsize
When ordering food, take a quick look around to see what other customers are getting.
If you feel like the portion size is too big, consider sizing down!
Share your food with your family and friends! Sharing dishes also means that you can broaden your tastebuds.
To be polite, remember to make the offer to share early instead of at the end of the meal.
"Aunty, can help me tabao?"
Stashing away unfinished meals for when you’re hungry later on not just reduces food waste, but it also helps save money. Just make sure you store them properly so that they’re safe to eat later!
For extra brownie points, use reusable containers to pack up your leftovers.
