This Earth Day, Reconsider Landfilling Food Waste

Earth DayAccording to recent studies, nearly one third of all municipal landfills are filled with food waste. It may seem like organic waste isn’t such a problem at all. Consider this: that hefty 30% of food waste is delivered to municipal landfills by waste management trucks, greatly increasing our carbon footprint and associated costs.

food wasteIn North America alone, the economic impact of picking up, transporting, and disposing of food waste tops $1.2 billion annually, and with 29.8% of landfills being filled with food waste, we’re running out of time and options. Together, we’re paying the price of landfilling organic waste. Are you considering composting as a means of doing the right thing for the environment?
