FACTS!

…They’re a thing. We love them. We also know they’re hard to come by on the Internet. That’s why we have a team of fact-checkers double-checking everything we post, with standards that meet or exceed anyone else on the web. So go ahead and share your favorite thing from Upworthy with the full confidence that it's on the level — and that you’ll look really smart doing it. Not that you need any help with that, of course.

If we discover that something less-than-facty slipped through the cracks, we’ll always be up front with you. Check our corrections page for more information.

This video does a pretty good job of making a case for not wasting food while wasting a bunch of food. So, maybe take this whole thing with a grain of salt. Or don't use salt cause salting a video makes no sense and would be kinda wasteful.
