Nearly 40% of the food we grow, distribute, put on store shelves then ultimately buy as consumers never get’s eaten. It’s called food waste and people like Andrew doing something about it by gleaning, composting, and even learning to eat from head to tail to eliminate waste.
When you buy food at the grocery store, do you actually know how healthy it is? Those nutrition labels on the side of the box provide a few nutrition details. But it leaves out the healthiness of the ingredients. And what about how the food was produced?
Check out this new tool from the Environmental Working Group called Food Scores. The tool rates a bunch of different categories of food including cereal, baby food, candy, and vegetables by their overall healthiness and how environmentally friendly they are.
There are over 80,000 different products in the database. If you are interested in the truth of how healthy your food is, check it out here.
