FOOD IN A LANDFILL
Did you know that a head of lettuce in a landfill can last up to 25 years?
The average person wastes 238 lbs of food per year. How many people are in your house?
Uneaten food is the single largest component of municipal solid waste taking up almost 25% of our nations landfills.
In landfills, food gradually breaks down to form methane, a greenhouse gas that’s up to 86 times more powerful than carbon dioxide.
