November 15th is America Recycles Day and, since we’re approaching Thanksgiving, I thought it could be good to focus on waste during a time of feasting. I was surprised at what I learned about food waste in America. The land of plenty is abundantly wasteful! The infographics below show what we can do to help reduce our own food waste or keep it out of the landfill by composting it. Please take the EPA challenge to reduce waste food and enjoy a bountiful Thanksgiving table.
