Nicely done, interesting presentation. I do most things right. I would have to say 98% of food that comes in the house is eaten. The only thing I don't understand is why coffee uses so much more water than tea.

A dishwasher is really using less as normal hand dish washing? I do a hand dish wash 2x a week ( live alone, not home a lot ) because of I have to do my dishes not much I did not go for a dishwasher

Reading a book by Jonathon Bloom, "American Wasteland".
Many aspects of food waste include: Food being landfilled that could feed the hungry, food waste that creates methane in landfills that will be a problem in the future (if not already). Not an easy fix to any of these problems and more (in the chapters I haven't read yet) Yes there is food that could be used to feed others, but the logistical costs to get it from farm to table are growing higher each day. Cleaning our plates would not cause obesity, if we didn't pile it high with food realistically we cannot finish. Take some and if you want more, then go back. Buy less fresh items when shopping. Just because the sale says 2 heads for $1.00 does not mean you'll eat it before it goes bad. Throwing it away doesn't save any money. Make "Stone Soup" when looking at all the leftovers in the fridge. If you don't have time to make the soup today. throw those leftovers in the freezer. They'll be ready when you do have the time. Change can happen, we just need to put conscience, active thought into it EACH day. Namaste

Very interesting article full of awareness for all pet owners - I knew most of this but had no idea …

That healthy balance is essential.

By their reactions (and they actually did dance), there's no doubt that they really liked the music.…

Hats off to them they've got more rhythm than me!

I wouldn't bike on the A9 for love nor money! It's far too dangerous.
