That’s pretty crazy, especially considering how many people go hungry every day here in the U.S. Beyond the food itself, when you factor in the trash we produce from food packaging, our kitchens start to feel like big ol’ waste machines, but it doesn’t have to be that way!
What if we all took control of the waste surrounding our food choices? Imagine the impact if everyone cut back on food packaging and made an effort to reduce the amount of food that hits their trash bins each week? Not only is reducing waste good for the planet and for people, it’s easy on the wallet! You can save a lot of cash by wasting less.
