All that good food . . .
- Each year, 1/3 of all food produced for human consumption is tossed away.
- This equates to 1.3 BILLION TONS of food waste.
- 90% of food waste ends up in landfills — Nope! It does not break down the way it does in a compost!
(see below for more!)*
*When food breaks down in a landfill, it does so anaerobically (without oxygen). This process creates methane – a greenhouse gas that is responsible for more than 30% of methane emissions in the U.S. Consider composting!
Waste less; compost more!
