• Did you know? That landfills are the second largest human-related source of dangerous methane gas in the United States. Yuck!

• Did you know? That food waste accounts for 25% of methane produced from landfills, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Now, think about that on a global scale.

• Did you know? That eating locally allows farmers sell direct to consumers and takes out the priority of packing, shipping, and shelf-life issues. Eating locally also means eating seasonally, which allows you and your family to enjoy the freshest crops.

• Did you know? That in wealthy countries like America, food waste often includes a greater share of carbon intensive foods. These could be foods with far higher agricultural emissions like red meat and dairy products, or those with high post-production emissions like ready meals and processed foods.

• Did you know? That the food on our dinner table often travels more than 1,500 miles to get there. Buying locally eliminates fuel, travel, and packaging, reducing our carbon foot-print.

• Did you know? The average person generates 4.3 pounds of waste per day. This is 1.6 pounds more than most produced back in 1960. Where does it all go?

Here at Eat Cleaner we believe that by reducing food waste we can dramatically reduce our carbon footprint on the earth!
