After fasting the whole day during Ramadan, we tend to feast with our eyes instead of buying just the right amount of food for Buka Puasa. It’s great having a spread laid out on the table, but it’s also very wasteful and kinda beats the whole purpose of this holy month, amirite? It’s all about moderation and discipline, which is why it’s the perfect month to re-adjust ourselves to make better decisions for the future of our environment.
Whether you’re cooking at home or making a pit stop at the neighbourhood bazaar after work, here are 5 easy steps to take for a zero waste Ramadan.
1. SAVOUR WHAT’S LEFT
Just because they’re leftovers, doesn’t mean the food has gone bad. It’s easy to get caught up with the idea of wanting to serve or be served freshly cooked dishes for Buka Puasa everyday but throwing out leftovers is a waste of good food and also your money. Put them in the freezer and pre-heat for Sahur!
