Event Details

Well, of course, you are already doing this since we cannot go out to restaurants at this time.   Did you know that cooking your own meals cuts back on the waste produced by takeout bags, containers, and plastic cutlery?  Of course, stepping into the kitchen comes with its own set of energy-efficient tips.  Here’s what you can learn about that since we are all home cooking -https://learn.compactappliance.com/how-to-save-energy-while-cooking/   Are you up for taking a big step to help address climate change?  Go Meatless- Try Plant-Based meals for one or two meals a day.  It doesn’t have to be dinner.  Or start with something like “Meatless Mondays”.   Not only will giving up meat for a meal open you up to other food options  https://www.goodhousekeeping.com/food-recipes/cooking/g3852/food-waste/, it's better for the planet. The U.N. reports that the meat industry is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. It's also estimated that over 1,800 gallons of water are used to produce just a single pound of beef. Don’t know where to start?  Here are  54 Vegan Recipes That Your Whole Family Will Love https://www.goodhousekeeping.com/food-recipes/healthy/g807/vegan-recipes/   Animal agriculture has an enormous impact on climate change, contributing as much greenhouse gases as every car, plane, train, and ship on Earth. Going plant-based is one of the most powerful ways to reduce our personal carbon footprints (or foodprint, as we learned yesterday). Kids love to help in the kitchen!  Get them involved!  Cooking is a great way to introduce reading, math, following directions. And if you started a garden and can use some of your home-grown food, what an exciting culmination of those efforts!
