  • Reflection Question
    Food Zero-Waste Cooking
    In North America, up to 65% of food waste happens at the consumer level. Chef Steven Satterfield advocates for utilizing every part of a vegetable. How can you incorporate using an entire vegetable, including the skins, tops, and stalks during your next meal prep?

    Liam Murtagh 4/01/2019 7:25 AM
    Use them as preparation and use them as yummy food.

    What are other ways you could use the power of the sun to reduce your own environmental footprint?

    The sun is warm so you can get heated up by the sun.

      you can make a solar panel to get energy to reduce your environmental footprint by using the suns energy and not the earths energy.
