The $750 Billion Waste Product That is Destroying the Environment

$750 Billion worth of food waste was thrown away in 2013.

That’s 1.3 billion metric tons!food_waste

 

When food waste rots, it emits methane which is over 20x more potent at trapping radiation into earth’s atmosphere.

On top of the methane emissions, billions of people in the world go hungry each year.

There are a few steps to reducing this problem

  1. Waste less Food
  2. Get food to those in need
  3. Feed animals with food waste
  4. Composting

A few chickens and compost bins in every neighborhood could go a long way to solving this huge problem.vermont compost chickens
