How to Be More Sustainable in Your Daily Life

Updated: Oct 19, 2021

Hello and welcome to our second blog post!


At Fooditive, we realise the importance of sustainability in all aspects of life. We are all about sustainability; it’s ingrained in our DNA. The main way we implement sustainability into our values is through adopting a circular economy in which fruit and vegetable side streams are transformed into functional and nutritional ingredients.

Sustainability can be hard to put into practice, especially in today’s world. That’s why we want to share our top 10 tips on how you can become more sustainable in your daily life.



1

Reduce


Take a bottle of water wherever you go to reduce single-use plastic.




2

Reuse


Bring a reusable bag or an old plastic bag to the supermarket.




3

Recycle


Freeze the off-cuts from fruits and vegetables to make juice or stock.



4

Drive less


Walk, bike, or use public transportation as much as you can. Luckily, Rotterdam has over 600km of bike paths!




5

Shop sustainably


Support sustainably ethical clothing brands or buy second-hand to reduce our reliance on fast fashion.



6

Save energy


Make the switch to renewable energy (solar, wind, etc.) or use less energy at home by replacing your lightbulbs with LED bulbs.




7

Shower buddy

Shower with your plants at a mild temperature. This way you can water your plants and save water at the same time. Just make sure it's not soapy water!



8

Eat less meat


Try to use meat alternatives or eat 3 meat-free meals a week. If you need some help with vegetarian/vegan recipes, Niki will be sharing her favourite plant-based recipe next week.




9

Seasonal produce


Be mindful of when fruits and vegetables are in season. It's better for you and the environment!



10

Less waste

Freeze your leftover meals to prevent food waste.



Let us know which tip you found most interesting and which one you'll be trying!


Until next week!
