The extreme issue of Food Waste has been in the news quite a bit lately, including NYC's new initiative being proposed by Mayor Bloomberg; won't be easy but we all have to address this problem http://www.environmentalleader.com/2013/09/19/nyc-mulls-food-waste-ban/ Today, colleague Andy Velwest shared another article which is worth a read and is also an opportunity to let folks know what Sustainable JC is up to on this topic - http://www.greenbiz.com/news/2013/09/16/carbon-footprint-food-waste-bigger-most-countries
SJC's Community Composting Project has recently gained the recognition of the EPA who will be rolling out a major consumer education campaign in 2014 in an attempt to reduce household food waste by 25%. SJC was selected as the only east coast group to pilot their educational materials before that launch.
