Conservation of food constitutes an important dimension of a conservative life: as the holiday season approaches, we should consider how we consume and conserve food.
"If you went and looked at your fridge right now, what would you see? For at least some of us, there would be moldy salsa or pasta sauce in the back of the fridge, wilted carrots in the drawer, or milk that’s gone sour.
"It’s a common tale in the U.S.—and sadly, much of the food in our fridges end up getting trashed: Americans waste around 133 billion pounds of useable food every year, according to the USDA."--Gracy Olmstead, The American Conservative
