here we are witnessing a character named henry throwing away an uneaten cheeseburger because he ate his fries first and got full. long story short, he wasted food and a lot of materials
from this simple little 1/3-pound cheeseburger it took 660 gallons of water to make. it takes 1,799 gallons of water for one pound of beef, which includes irrigation for grains and grasses in cow feed, and the water for drinking.
I think I will get 1/3 pound burger like last time
this burger also uses other resources to be transported and reserved. there is oil from truck transport, and electricity from freezer storage
believe it or not, the burger also uses paper, to separate the patties in freezer storage, the cashier printing the receipt, and the paper packaging keeping the burger warm and non-messy
so next time henry tries to order a meal from a restaurant, he should consider the amount of resources that were put into this one food item, and if he is going to eat it all.
one of the best things to do to stop wasting resources is eat home made food more often, and use groceries that you just bought soon after you bought them to stop the amount of food that is decaying in your fridge, freezer, and cabinets. another helpful thing is to take the food you didn't eat and eat it later as leftovers. thank you!
