Food for Thought

I just came across this recent EPA infographic on waste and particularly enjoyed this portion:

That 95% statistic comes from the EPA’s Municipal Solid Waste report, which shows that composting levels have doubled from 2008 to 2012. (It went from 2.3% to 4.8%.) While those low amounts enable such dramatic improvement, at least we’re improving!

I also like the Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rethink part. That last ‘R’ is new to me, but it definitely works well with food waste. If we all rethink how we approach eating, we’ll likely waste less food.
