Salvaged Edible

Salvaged food increases in popularity as consumers prioritize wasteless lifestyles

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.
