Make your food last longer

Green (Living) Review

By Lyndsey from Recycle for Wales The easiest way to make food last for longer in our home is by freezing it. I usually make batches of food so I can be lazy in the week, and defrost it when I need it. Making a few small changes to how we store our food such as freezing it, making it into a jam etc can make it last longer. In the long run, this means we get to eat more of the food we buy, throw away less and save money. Food Storage green living green living tips
