Ways To Waste Less Food
Dont mix fruits and vegetables
Never mix fruits and vegetables. Most of the fruits like apple, banana, etc release ethylene gas which is a natural ripening agent. Most of the veggies like spinach, cabbage, carrot, cauliflower, beans, green leafy vegetables, mushroom, okra, etc are ethylene sensitive. The sensitive ones spoil quickly when exposed to ethylene. So it is always wise to store vegetables and fruits separately. Some fruits should also not be mixed. Ethylene releasers spoil watermelon when in contact. Bananas ripen quickly and spoil the nearby fruits as well. To speed up the ripening process place a tomato or banana close to the fruits.
