TAKE THE CHALLENGE
Back to top
40% of all food in the United States is wasted.
Wasted food has profound financial, social, and environmental impacts.
Nearly half of all food waste comes from households.
Reducing food waste is one of the easiest things you can do to fight climate change.
Tired of telling guests where to put their dirty napkins and paper plates? Make a sign to show them what goes into the compost bin.
Line your compost pail with newspaper or a paper bag to minimize any mess. Dump everything into your green bin.
Don’t forget to remove the produce sticker before composting your peels! These tiny pieces of plastic are a major problem for composting facilities.
Keep a small tub near your cutting board to collect vegetable trimmings, then easily dump into the curbside green bin.
Line your pail with a bag to keep things even tidier. Just make sure the bag is compostable.
