How You Can Cut Down on Food Waste

By Claudine Galloway
Blog

Monday’s grilled chicken. Last night’s takeout. That head of romaine in the crisper.

According to ReFED, 40% of food that we bring home ends up uneaten and in landfills. And that costs a family of four more than $1,500 per year (Just think what you could do with that money!). 

Not to mention, food waste accounts for 8% of global greenhouse gas emissions.
