DAY 52 | The 5-Second Rule

Today’s change is abiding by the 5-second rule whenever I drop food on the floor. Five seconds seem like a long time, but really our ground isn’t going to kill us — most likely, lol.

Of course, if there’s visible grossness on it, I will offer it to animals before discarding.

This is to help combat food waste. A lot of people dispose of food immediately after dropping it. Most of the time it’s still edible.

And don’t worry! I am still actively researching composting. Very soon, I’ll dive into it. But for now, I’ll combat food waste in other ways.
