Sheena Adams, Arctic Energy Alliance’s Inuvik Regional Energy Project Coordinator, in partnership with Ecology North, screened “Just Eat It” to promote waste reduction week. Those who came were surprised to learn that 4% of energy used in North America and enough water to service 500 million homes, is lost because of food waste. Simply put, when we waste food we also waste energy and water. Ideas to help reduce food waste include shopping more often and selectively, using all we buy and donating what we don’t use. Ideally, any leftovers should be composted rather than placed in the landfill. Everyone who attended left with inspiration to reduce food waste and a small goody bag of expired but still useful food.
