 LEAVE FEWER LEFTOVERS - Did you know that nearly half of all food in the United States is thrown away before it is consumed? The way we produce, use, and waste food creates nearly one-third of U.S. carbon emissions. 

       

Modern food production favors toxic pesticides, petroleum-based fertilizers, genetically modified foods, long-distance farm-to-plate transportation, and the factory farming of animals – all of which exacts a heavy toll on the atmosphere. Estimates suggest nearly one-fifth of climate-change pollution comes from the food industry
