    Ok i find this soo anyoing,


    When you go to a groceery store and buy a turnip ( just bear with me here) There's at lest one turnip that is thrown out, if not more, why do we have to waste so much [​IMG] we buy culls from a local farmer and they are fine, but maybe have two extra roots or what ever, a small nick, there thrown out.


    Same goes for meat know a days, very few people eat heart anymore (i do not eat heart never had the option to try it) so few eat gosse duck, goat, anymore. Ohh my i hate fussy people because there food does not "look right".

    Depends on what it is, I think. If my carrots have an odd look to them I'll give them to the guinea pigs. However if my apples have a bruise, I just cut it out and eat the apple anyways. There is a lot of waste though.

    Of course they have, but do you think 100% is sorted? Germany has the record and sorts 60% to recycle. But what do you think happens to the other 40%? Incineration or landfill is the only options.

    I think if they gave people jobs to sort through garbage and recycle everything that's recyclable it would be better for the economy. And get bonus points for "green living"
