What's Your "Foodprint"?

Event Details

It’s time to work to reduce food waste!  Food waste greatly contributes to climate change. If food waste were a country, it would be the world’s third-largest emitter after the U.S. and China. Americans waste about a third of their food. In other words, we have a food waste problem.  Think about it — when you toss food in the trash, you’re wasting all the resources that it took to grow, harvest and ship that food. Food also sits in a landfill, producing methane, a powerful greenhouse gas that is 34 times more potent over a 100-year period than carbon dioxide. So serve yourself as much as you can eat, salvage your leftovers and compost what’s truly bad. Annapolis Compost has been a great addition to the Severna Park Earth Day Festival!  They provide an at-home composting service.  http://annapoliscompost.com/ Learn to compost at home https://www.epa.gov/recycle/composting-home And here’s a look at composting yard waste and some foods (fruit and vegetables) https://www.canr.msu.edu/news/composting_a_smart_gardening_practice_to_recycle_garden_and_yard_waste   For more tips to help reduce food waste in your home https://www.goodhousekeeping.com/life/money/a37964/reduce-food-waste-at-home/   Take time as a family to calculate your household’s FOODPRINThttps://www.earthday.org/campaign/foodprints-for-future/
