Did you know that food waste is one of the primary drivers of greenhouse gas emissions that lead to global warming? This is because food waste emits methane upon decomposition – the same compound emitted in the production of coal and oil. Follow our simple tips to see how you can manage food wastage.
You can start by investing in a food composting machine. Some of these machines can take up to 100 kg of food waste and turn it into compost, which then can be used as fertilisers for the plants in your hotel: a cost-efficient way to maintain your beautiful landscape while taking care of nature!
Reuse leftover ingredients
Stay creative! Using leftover ingredients like fruit rinds to decorate is an innovative way of reducing food waste. By serving pickled watermelon rind as bar bites or hollowed-out vanilla pods as a straw and telling your patrons about it, they’ll not only have a good night, but the utmost respect for your establishment, too.
Donate to the hungry
One man’s waste is another man’s treasure. Donating your extra food to soup kitchens would help you cut down waste as well as help those in need. Locally, try approaching these soup kitchens for your donation:
