A Greater than Zero Effort for Food Waste

“Over the past decade, we have seen a resurgence in audiobooks and podcasts.  With how busy our daily lives are, it is an easy way to learn something new, enjoy a story, or engage in a community or conversation without much effort. 

From Audible to Spotify to Apple Podcasts, there are dozens of different apps and connective ways to listen to your media.  If you’re an audiophile like me and consume media this way, I highly recommend checking out the Libby app.  This app connects your local library card to any audiobooks they have on file and it is all FREE.  It is through this app that I recently was able to read… well, listen… to the book “101 Ways to Go Zero Waste” by Kathyrn Kellogg. 

This amazing book is filled with so many engaging and easy ways to rethink your approach to your waste.  As someone who strives to follow the Reduce, Reuse, Recycle motto, I wanted to share some ways that you can tackle your own “waste” problem and spread the sustainable awareness the food industry has to play in this problem.”

  1. Pack your food right after it is made
  2. Another way to reduce your food waste is to just buy what you need and some of what you want
  3. Reduce the amount of plastic you use
  4. If you are able to, composting is definitely a very good idea
  5. Support and buy low-impact food items

Kia ora! Sustainability is at the core of my soul ever since I was a kid. I always strive to finish the food on my plate and live as a minimalist. I love to cut down on waste in order to live sustainably and harmoniously with our planet. This brings me to my passion as a Food Scientist to integrate new technologies into innovative and creative solutions to meet customer demands and market trends and to optimize products and processes for quality, savings and sustainability. To these goals, I have published a Journal on my work on sustainable packaging and patented a new Antimicrobial wash. Nothing is more satisfying than working hard and smart at the workplace and playing hard outside of working hours. I enjoy rejuvenating myself through spending quality time with my two adorable kids and my awesome soul mate and getting close to nature when possible, be it gardening, tramping or going to the beach. I also love to learn about our magnificent universe and how sustainability is working in the grand scheme of things. I strongly believe that Work, Life & Balance is the key to a healthy state of mind, both physically and mentally. I look forward to making a positive difference wherever and whenever I can. Through this Blog, I hope to catalog recent Food Trends and Food Technologies that I come across so that anyone who is interested can have access to it (articles and resources). Please use these resources at your discretion. On top of that, I would also like to share related news and technologies of the future that would help mankind advance towards a Type 1 Civilization. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to share and contribute to the “Resources“. I would like to thank you in advance for dropping by. I sincerely hope that you can benefit from the recent Food Trends and Food Technologies I catalogued. Kind regards | Ngā mihi RenSun Lee
