Eco-friendly people have this thing about food storage. Conventional people stuff their cabinets with Ziploc reusable containers, Tupperware, and takeout containers that spill out every time you open the cabinet (but never enough lids). To them, this is the most uninteresting and annoying part of the kitchen. But the sustainable set takes the task of putting away extra food seriously, for the following reasons:
- We really hate waste. So we store everything that might have a conceivable function in a future meal.
- We cook from scratch a lot. Which means we have a lot of ingredients to store.
- We hate plastic, so we're always in the prowl for glass alternatives.
- We like to take food with us--as snacks or lunches--so as to avoid the heinous fast food options we might encounter throughout our day.
