Salvaged Edible

Salvaged food increases in popularity as consumers priotize a wasteless lifestyle

Implications - As lifestyles like freeganism become more widely accepted, consumers are becoming more aware of how much they waste. Recycled food consumption is transitioning from a niche choice to a way to decrease one's ecological footprint. This signifies how consumers are distancing themselves from lavish, wasteful lifestyles.
