Did you know that on average, Americans waste 40% of food overall? And not only that, but 95% of our food waste ends up in a landfill and it adds up to a loss of $165 billion annually. Yikes! So why should we reduce food waste? It saves us money; reduces methane emissions from landfills; conserves energy and resources because it prevents pollution from transporting, growing and manufacturing food; and you can support your community by donating food that would otherwise have gone to waste. Sounds pretty good right? Take a look at ways to reduce the amount of food you’re wasting at home.
