Closed-Loop Cooking is here to break down barriers around living and eating sustainably. This is for anyone who eats.
Unnecessary food waste and excessive packaging perpetuates food injustice and is a serious threat to the environment. Plant-based recipes minimize waste and offer so much variety for endless meal combinations and scraps that are easier to compost. Even incorporating one or two plant-based meals per week in your diet makes a significant difference.
Let’s have a meal, let’s close the loop.
