A Message for December 25…and after

First off, Merry Christmas!

Many of us will enjoy a nice family dinner on Christmas–and I hope you do enjoy it! I also hope you make good use of your leftovers. As does my man Hilary Benn, UK Environment Secretary, who hit out at the practice of binning Christmas leftovers.

Meanwhile, in a related topic, the City of Denver has made their position clear: If you don’t want your fruit cake, they’ll take it. Same goes for your turkey carcass, unwanted pumpkin pie (surely an oxymoron) and all other food waste.photo by Randy Son of Robert via Creative Commons

That Denver Recycles flyer declares that Americans waste 25 percent more food between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Don’t be part of those numbers! Enjoy your leftovers (and loved ones) this year.
