Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

How was the year 2021 for you? Every year, on January 1, our global mom, Yasuko, writes in her agenda what she would like to do in the year ahead. One of her “New Year’s resolutions” was to start selling handicrafts she made as part of EEN activities. Look at the photos!

The Month of 3Rs (1)

Look at the photo! Our global mom looks ‘beary’ happy, pointing at the brooch on her cardigan. Can you guess why she is so happy with the brooch? Can you guess what it is made of? I will give you a hint.

Let’s reduce food waste!

In August, I introduced a few ways to reduce food loss. Today, I would like to introduce a way to reduce food waste. You may think that “reducing food loss” and “reducing food waste” are the same.

However, I would like to regard “reducing food waste” as an initiative of using what is generally not used, while “reducing food loss” is a way to prevent food which is supposed to be eaten from being throwing away.

In my diary dated 10 July 2021, I introduced a nearby café selling carrots with bruises, which cannot be sold at the wholesale market in Japan where quality control is ‘beary’ strict. I bought some damaged carrots at the café. How did I cook them? You will see what I transformed them into. Scroll down, please!
