An average American produce 4.6 lbs of trash every day, which adds up to almost 120,000 lbs of trash over a lifetime! The Zero Waste movement has helped spread awareness about this issue but going zero waste is a big challenge. That is why our teams at Rescuing Leftover Cuisine and Global Green aim to help you get your Zero Waste lifestyle started by reducing food waste.
40% of food produced in America ends up in landfills, producing methane, an incredibly powerful greenhouse gas. At the same time, when we waste food, we are also wasting the land, water, energy and labor that went into growing food. Thankfully, there are countless ways to reduce food waste! Join the discussion with our panelists who are armed with the knowledge and experience to reduce food waste this March 22nd to learn more.
