I tossed out a bag of mushy strawberries this evening, damn! Did you know that the average American wastes 40% of the food they purchase? I haven’t measured my own waste, but 40% doesn’t seem unrealistic. And that’s sad. What’s worse? Much of that wasted food ends up in landfills where it breaks down and forms methane, a greenhouse gas far more powerful than carbon dioxide.

Reducing food waste is important. I vow to do my best — right after I clean out my frig.
