The USDA estimates that 30-40% of the US food supply is wasted each year. That means that roughly 133 billion tons of food is being sent to landfills when it could be recycled responsibly. The more organic waste rotting in landfills, the more greenhouse gases are being emitted into the atmosphere. Increasing greenhouse gases are causing more and more extreme weather events, increasing global temperatures, and altering ecosystems upsetting migration patterns and decreasing habitable spaces for animals and marine species to live healthy lives. We have to act now to help protect our planet and ensure long healthy futures for all of us.
