One of the top three things we can do to combat climate change? Waste less food 🌎
A lot of food waste happens before it gets to us, like when less-than-perfect produce gets thrown away based on how it looks 🙁 But we can still make a difference. One easy way: choose orphaned bananas! According to a Swedish study that measured supermarket food waste, bananas are tossed more than any other item. Not only that, bananas contribute the most food waste in terms of weight and environmental impact 😳
My son and I enjoy rescuing “reject” bananas that would otherwise go to landfill. Bonus: We end up with bananas of varying ripeness, ensuring a ripe banana every day 😁

I throw my over ripe bananas in the freezer, as is, to make banana bread later.
