If you are an average person (and most of you are, by definition!), and you live in a somewhat wealthy, developed country, such as the U.S., you throw food away on a regular basis.
You probably don’t feel great about this, but you also probably haven’t managed to consistently work at fighting food waste in your house.
I can help you fight food waste!
I made a four week email course to help you stop throwing away so much food.
Twice a week for four weeks, I’ll show up in your inbox with an actionable step for you to take.
You’ll get a written version (for those of you that hate video!) and a short video (for those of you that prefer to watch.)
At the end of four weeks, you’ll have some new habits and practices that will help you fight food waste year round.
This is the first time I’ve ever tried making a course and I’m sure there will be some snafus, so I’m offering it at a lower price point right now ($19.99) than I will later, after all the kinks are ironed out.
Soooo, if you want to be one of my beta members, you can join now and pay less.
Why should you fight food waste?
Two main reasons:
1. You’ll save money. A lot of money.
If you are an average American household, you throw away 31.9% of your household food each year.
What does this mean in dollars?
According to the American Journal of Agricultural Economics, the average American household throws out $1866 worth of food each year.
None of us would ever seriously chuck almost $2000 into the trash can each year (!), but as it turns out, we are all kinda doing that without realizing it.
If you reduced your food waste even by 50%, you’d save $933 every year. That’s nothing to sneeze at.
2. You’ll help the environment
Food waste in landfills does not properly compost (not enough light or air!), but it does decompose enough to produce significant amounts of methane gas.
Eat the food instead of throwing it away, and you will reduce your contribution to the methane problem.
Plus, food production has a high environmental cost from seed to store. When we don’t eat what’s been produced, all of that cost has been wasted.
What’s included in the course?
- 4 weeks’ worth of emailed video/text lessons
- an invite to a private Facebook group where you can chat with me and other course members
- simple, helpful printables
I’ll give you plenty of practical assignments, and we’ll also talk about how to stay motivated and avoid discouragement.
Who should not buy this course?
- are already good at not wasting food
- are a self-starter who wants to look up this info on your own
then you definitely do not need this course.
Most of the information we’ll be going over has already been shared in some way, shape, or form on my blog over the last 12 years, which means you can just DIY your way to reduced food waste.
So if you are motivated enough to poke through the archives and implement these practices on your own, well, you can just skip the course.
Who should buy this course?
- are tired of wasting money by throwing food out
- are new to fighting food waste
- feel unsure of where to start with food waste
- learn better when information is delivered gradually
- do better with accountability and structure
then this course could be really helpful to you!
Spend $19.99, save $1,000.00
The average household throws away $1800 worth of food each year.
So if my course helps you trim your food waste even by 50-60%, you could save $1000 in a single year.
And that’s not even taking into account the cumulative savings if you keep up these habits for years to come.
$19.99 is basically the price of one takeout meal, so it’s a small investment.
And the $19.99 you spend on this course could result in thousands of dollars of savings over your lifetime.
I want you to be happy with this course, so if you try it and don’t think it’s valuable, you have until December 31st to request a refund.
That means you can go through the whole course! If you do that and don’t love it, I’ll give you 100% of your money back.
Registration is open for only 3 days
I want to have a group of people going through this course all at the same time.
To make sure that happens, I’m keeping registration open only through Thursday night at 9 pm EST, and then I’m going to close it again until January.
So, if you want to be in the first group, hop in and join us now!
Leave a comment with any questions that you’ve got.
And if run into any issues during the checkout process, please let me know so I can get the problem fixed!
P.S. In January this will be available higher price point; this go-round is priced cheaper because of the snafus that I am sure will pop up as I go through this the first time! Think of this like buying marked-down produce: it won’t be perfect, but it’ll get the job done and it’ll be cheaper.
P.P.S. If you hate courses, well, never fear. I’m not going to bombard you with sales pitches for this. And the usual free blog posts are still gonna be here like always.
