John Oliver Talks Serious About Food Waste In America. It’s Pretty Shocking!
Posted by GreaterGoodness
The most recent episode of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver got down to why there’s so much food waste in America. According to the Economic Research Service of the USDA, “ERS estimates that 31 percent or 133 billion pounds of the 430 billion pounds of the edible and available food supply at the retail and consumer levels in the United States in 2010 went uneaten…” That’s a lot of food.
Have you tracked how much food you throw away in your home?? Chances are it’s more than you realize. And a lot of it’s probably not even bad! I know I’m going to reevaluate when and why I throw stuff away.
