Food waste doesn’t just affect the 1 in 7 Americans who go hungry — wasting food also wastes natural resources that native, often endangered wildlife need to survive.
In fact, the supersized, meat- and dairy-heavy American diet is one of the greatest threats to biodiversity on the planet.
And it’s no small matter: Americans waste 40 percent of the food we produce — including all the greenhouse gases, air and water pollution and habitat loss that went into producing that food.
