What goes into the garbage? It’s stuff we no longer have a use for. What about food? Clearly, we purchase food with the intention of feeding ourselves and our family. But life happens, and we end up throwing away food that has spoiled, is past-dated or simply not to our taste. This is, unfortunately, a huge source of greenhouse gas: according to the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization, 30 per cent of food is wasted globally, contributing 8 per cent of total global greenhouse gas emissions.
There are alternatives to throwing food in the trash, though. Practicing these alternatives is one of those win-win situations - we prevent the deleterious effect of food in the landfill and we meet another need. Follow the link below to learn about these.
Food discarded into the landfill generates which potent greenhouse gas?
