How much food do you throw away each week? The amount may surprise you. According to the USDA, food waste in the United States is estimated to be around 30–40% of the food supply. It’s an amount that significantly impacts the planet and society. A gadget like the mill Kitchen bin can help you and your family tackle food waste at home.

And according to the International Energy Agency, electricity is 40% of global greenhouse gas emissions. You can reduce your electrical footprint by switching to solar energy at home. Thanks to the Anker SOLIX X1, you can store solar energy during the day for nighttime use
