Green Team :: Did You Know? #10


10. Did you know that according to the US Department of Agriculture, up to one-fifth of America's food goes to waste each year? That’s an estimated 130 pounds of food per person that ends up in landfills! The annual value of this lost food is estimated at around $31 billion, which could have fed roughly 49 million people. Think twice when you shop:  check your fridge and shelves before shopping to prevent over purchasing, and consider donating unused items (that are unopened, non perishable and in good condition) to local food banks. Think before you buy, donate the excess and compost what’s leftover! Bootstrap Compost provides in home composting for the Greater Boston Area!
