When it comes to reducing waste, one of the easiest spaces to tackle is our kitchen. Food waste is a growing problem globally, and the United States is no exception. The U.S. wastes an estimated $160 billion worth of food every year, with dairy being the biggest culprit. That's a lot of food. 

Of course, we often buy food with the best intentions; we'll cook more, stop ordering takeout, and base our meals around fresh produce. Unfortunately, fresh food does spoil, and once something is rotted, you simply can't revive it. That's why it's so important to store food properly. This is especially true if you like to meal prep your meals ahead of time, or if you're cooking with leftovers in mind.
