Don’t waste food by Reuters

Humans grow and waste food at a staggering scale.

We devote half the earth’s habitable land to food production, while ultimately tossing one-third of that food. Simply using the food we grow and buy keeps planet-warming gases out of the atmosphere, leading to climate benefits we could feel in our lifetime. So where do we start? The EPA’s “Food Recovery Hierarchy” provides a framework for how to prioritize managing your leftover food.

This illustrated guide helps show what’s being done to combat food waste, and how our small choices can have an outsized impact.
