sustainable table

Hey there kiddo! Do you know what sustainability means? It means doing things in a way that won't hurt the planet or the things that live on it.

So, a sustainable table is when we try to make our table activities like eating and cooking in a way that is good for the planet, and keeps it healthy.

To do this, we need to think about:

1. What we eat: We need to choose food that is grown and produced in a way that doesn't harm the planet. Like, we should eat veggies and fruits that are grown organically without any harmful pesticides or fertilizers, and we should avoid eating meat from animals that were raised using harmful farming practices.

2. How much we waste: We need to be careful about how much food we throw away. We should only cook the amount we need, and try to use leftovers in our future meals.

3. How we use our resources: We should try to use energy-efficient cooking equipment like stoves and ovens. We should also try to minimize our water usage when cooking.

4. How we dispose of things: We should try to recycle, compost, or reuse as much as possible. For example, we can use leftover food scraps to make compost that can help our plants grow.

So, a sustainable table means enjoying our meals in a way that is good for the planet, and helps keep it healthy for years to come!
