Think.Eat.Save. is dedicated to helping people around the word think about food waste, eat more mindfully, and save — save what? Save people from going hungry, save our own health and money, save the environment.

There is a lot to browse and read on this site: blog posts, news articles, messages from Ban Ki-moon, the Secretary General of the UN, as well as one from the Under Secretary, reports from experts, tips about how to shop, plan meals, store leftovers, eat out, as well as a multimedia section with videos, infographics and  much, much more.

Here’s one of the tips (#2 on this list):

Buy Funny Fruit—many fruits and vegetables are thrown out because their size, shape, or color are not “right”. Buying these perfectly good funny fruit, at the farmer’s market or elsewhere, utilizes food that might otherwise go to waste.

I often buy the 「理由(わけ)あり」apples at the supermarket. It means they’re imperfect and that’s why they’re cheaper. I like “funny fruit”, though. I’d rather be called “funny” than “imperfect”, too.
