Reduce your household food waste. Shop in your fridge first, meal plan, and show your leftovers some love to make sure you’re not throwing away valuable food (and money!) at home. Bring your scraps and peels to one of the white Food bins in town where it’ll be composted.
Shop zero waste. Bring your own bags to the grocery store and avoid buying things with plastic packaging.
Bring your own containers for any leftovers you may have while eating out.
Bring your own mug to coffee shops. Some even offer a small discount if you do.
Get involved with local environmental action groups that focus on zero waste, such as The Bear Minimum, Banff Food Rescue, or the Biosphere Institute.
