How to reduce food waste and save money : Nowadays, as I look around, I noticed that food waste has become a habit. Firstly, people buy a lot more stuff than what is needed and secondly, they eat a lot more than required which ultimately leads to food waste. You might not be aware of the fact that by these habits, we are putting extra strain on our nation’s economy and natural resources like forests/farms. Also, we are putting extra pressure on our hard working farmers. When you waste food, you also waste our precious resources (like water, seeds, feed, etc.) that go into producing it. It ultimately leads to the weakening of our nation’s economy. So today, being a responsible citizen, I am taking responsibility and have come up with great ideas on how we can reduce food waste and ultimately save a lot of money.Read More
Store Food Wisely
Always remember to keep older products in the front row of your shelf and the latest ones and the back so that the older products get used first and not get spoiled. I am suggesting this method by personal experience – My kitchen used to be very disorganised. Many times it happened that I kept some old packets and bottles somewhere inside the store and then forgot about them. By the time I used to find them, they were already expired and ultimately food and money, both got wasted. That is why I always suggest to organising the kitchen properly.
USE YOUR LEFTOVERS
Another super technique to save both food and money is to use your leftover food to make new dishes out of them. If you don’t eat everything you make, remember to freeze it for later use.
I’ll tell you what I cook out of the left over food which you can also cook:
USE OVER RIPENED FRUITS AND VEGETABLES
Whenever a fruit gets over ripened, do not throw them. Rather you can make a fruit smoothie/milkshake/thick shake. If there are multiple over ripened fruits, then better to make a fruit cream/custard.
Similarly, if there are over ripened vegetables like tomato/bottle gourd/bitter gourd/beetroot/pumpkin etc. then you can make soup out of them rather than throwing it away.
BUY ONLY WHAT YOU NEED
Many people believe in buying a lot of stuff together and freezing it which leads to rotting of food and wastage of money. You can save a lot of money just by buying your grocery in limit.
Talking about me, I buy my vegetables and fruits on a daily basis. By doing this, neither the vegetables get rotten nor I have to throw them. Infact, I get fresh vegetables daily. You wont believe it but since the time I have adopted this method, I have started saving a good amount every month.
We usually buy vegetables and fruits from a retail shopkeeper due to which we get it more expensive because the shopkeeper earns his own profit. So I would personally suggest you buy vegetables from the wholesale market. I can assure you that you can save a good amount everytime you go for a purchase.

Construction vs destruction is a debatable subject due to its impact on climate change. When wide road and gigantic constructions going on then we can see demolition of trees and hills, which force us to think about environment destruction. Big construction demolishes forest and trees. The N.G.O and other environment protector come to the ground and start protesting against demolitions.
When building of Dam on river starts, it destructs nature. Lots of area covered under catchment area. Lots of fertile land sink under catchment area. many wildlives are lost due to this and so on. Stones and concrete which are brought from quarry and mines for the construction also causes environment destruction.
But wide roads, dams, airports and other huge construction are required for the progress of a nation. Wide road and infrastructure are playing a vital role for rapid transportation. Ports and airports are the key areas for goods as well as passenger transportation.
Dams are required to generate hydro power to reduce the short fall of electricity and it also diverts water for irrigation and drinking. This are not possible without construction/development
Hence, destruction and construction are the two sides of a coin. Balance between both is very important. Damages caused by the construction should be substituted with Rehabilitation of wild lives, Human lives and habitat . Trees should be replanted and help developing more forests. Development is important but with discipline and limited destruction to minimize its impact on climate change
