Labeling and dating containers in the fridge helps fight food waste by reminding us what we have, and what needs to get eaten first. Keeping a marker and tape handy and visible means you won't have to go hunting through drawers.
Use these ideas to remind your friends, family and co-workers:
Change habits"Labelling your leftovers makes it easy to remember what's in the fridge, and when it needs to be eaten."
"Keeping a marker and tape right beside my fridge makes it easy to label my containers."
One small ask
"Will you try keeping a marker and tape beside your fridge for the next month?"
