You gave us responsibility for the earth,
a world of riches and delight.

So that those who follow after us
May enjoy the fruits of your creation.

Food waste
Our supermarkets continue to struggle with the challenge of cutting the amount of food that goes to waste daily. Several have schemes with local charities and food banks to ensure that perfectly edible food goes to those who need it rather than to the tip. For example, Lidl has committed to rolling out its collaboration with social enterprise project Neighbourly across the country by 2018. Neighbourly has also worked with M&S. Do you know what your favoured supermarket’s policy is? Ask, encourage, congratulate them and/or lobby for them to do more.

Leftover Tips
We can all probably do more to manage our food use better. For example, if you only eat the florets of cauliflower or broccoli think about how you might use the stems – roasted with oil, salt and cumin, or raw, finely sliced into salads. Cabbages and kale can be shredded, tossed in oil and baked until they are like crispy seaweed. Why not share your Leftover Tips on the LiveSimply Board in the Entrance lobby. We’ll share the best in future LiveSimply Tips bulletins.

Live sustainably

Campaigns by Surfers Against Sewage, Greenpeace and others continue for the introduction of a bottle deposit scheme to limit plastic bottle waste. Greenpeace is urging major producers such as CocaCola, PepsiCo, Danone and others to take responsibility. Check out www.sas.org.uk/messageinabottle and www.greenpeace.org.uk

Alternative uses for plastic bottles
Before you lob plastic bottles into the recycling bin, this short video (link below) offers several ingenious ideas for other uses for plastic bottles. Check it out. https://www.facebook.com/easydiyspage/videos/1220513831410387/

Bananas

Banana3-1020x765.jpg (1020×765)This popular yellow fruit could be a useful indicator of the ethical credentials of your favourite grocer. A recent study by Ethical Consumer found a mix of Fairtrade, Rainforest Alliance or Organic bananas in our supermarkets. For example, all of Sainsbury’s, the Co-op and Waitrose bananas are Fairtrade, whereas all of Tesco,Lidl, Aldi and Asda are Rainforest Alliance. (Source: Ethical Consumer May/June 2017) .To understand the impact of banana production on workers and the environment, check out www.storyofbanana.com It offers a list of actions consumers can take to help improve the banana industry.

The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any. – Alice Walker, author of The Color Purple.
