For those of you who don't know me, I have always been a tree hugger. Taking care of the Earth is fundamental to the health of ourselves and others. Everything is connected by a strong yet fragile ecosystem - from our families to the fish in the sea. This message has been on blast since we were children (thanks Captain Planet!) and yet society overall still hasn't grasped the importance. The well-being of one directly effects the well-being of all.
This holiday season, please remember that celebrating is not a license to be wasteful. If you have a moment, read this thoughtful article from the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) on how to reduce food waste. Consider conserving what would be excess and sharing with someone less fortunate like your local homeless shelter. It's all love - for one another and our beautiful planet. Thank you!
"When we throw away food, we're also throwing away the land, water, and energy used to produce that food."
