The relationship between the environment and humanity is one of interdependence—each affects the other. Therefore, just as our actions and choices affect the environment, the health of the planet influences our own personal health and wellbeing, as well as our communities, families, and economies.
We've compiled some of our favorite ways to minimise our impact on the planet.

NEVER THROW OUT BROWN BANANAS AGAIN
@goingzerowaste_ Replying to @sparefoodco What’s your favorite banana bread add in? 🍌 - my favorite is walnuts - Justin’s favorite is chocolate chips If I had more time, I would have done these in my reusable silicone muffin liners and done a few muffins of each! This is recipe 64 and I think it might be the most well known scraptastic recipe of all time. There are tons of different recipes, but this is my favorite! It’s not too sweet and perfect with a big spread of peanut butter on top. Ingredients: - 1 3/4 cups of flour - 1/4 cup sugar - 1 teaspoon baking powder - 1 teaspoon baking soda - pinch of salt - 1/3 cup olive oil - 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (I use homemade and have a video on that!) - 3 large overripe bananas - 1/4 cup almond milk Instructions: - add and mix all dry ingredients in a bowl - in a separate bowl mash the bananas, and then add all wet ingredients - Add dry ingredients into wet ingredients bowl. - Don’t over mix! Add to a greased loaf pan - Bake 350 for an hour - Enjoy! #bananabread #frugalliving #scrappycooking #foodwastesolution #bananas #zerowaste #sustainable #foodwaste #ecofriendly ♬ Blicky - Fresh X Reckless
