Video: Zero Waste Video Series – Preventing Food Waste
Released in 2020
In the U.S., up to 40% of food goes uneaten, making wasted food the single largest item going into our landfills. Each year, Americans waste enough food to feed 164 million people their full diet every day of the year. And when food waste ends up in landfills it emits methane, a potent greenhouse gas. In this video, we partner with our friends at Natural Resource Defense Council to talk about the scope of food waste and how each of us can be part of the solution to make sure that food makes it into our bellies and not in our landfills!
