Have to agree, though, that running a freezer isn't really good for the environment. I have discontinued use of the 16 cu ft freezer I used to use.
But since I live alone and am on a very tight budget, and food is priced more economically in larger quantities, I do tend to buy a little more when something that I can eat on my somewhat restricted diet is on sale. Then I store it in the freezer that's part of my refrigerator.
I know beef cattle are bad for us and for the environment, and I no longer eat beef or pork, and have cut way back on milk. However, I'm still guilty of eating poultry, yogurt, and cheese. I've been looking at trying to become at least more vegan, but haven't figured out all about how to do that.
If we are to go on living together on this Earth, we must all be responsible for it.
