Composting and Zero Waste
Americans throw out a lot of food. Approximately 96 billion pounds every year. That’s about 12% of the material in our landfills… all of it slowly rotting away, producing tons of methane gas, which the EPA says is 20 times more damaging to the environment than auto emissions.
More and more commercial kitchens are doing their best to divert food waste from landfills either through better planning which prevents waste or by finding other uses for food waste, such as composting or animal feed.
