As a nation we are extremely wasteful when it comes to food. It is figured that 30% of purchased food ends up as waste. This means over 48 billion dollars is being placed in trash cans in homes, businesses and schools each year. However, this is certainly not an issue without an answer. While the most obvious response is to waste less, it is not always that easy. It is important to be aware of your family’s needs in regards to food, compared to that which you actually purchase. Plan ahead and create a meal plan so you can buy only the items that are needed and that will ultimately get used, instead of dropping unused produce into the trash. Begin composting at home or using a local composting facility. With this you can also include yard trimmings, which can be composted. Instead of sending grass clippings off to landfill, spread them across the lawn to break down, allowing them to provide nutritional value to the soil.
