Why should you compost?
"Food is the largest single source of waste in the U.S. More food ends up in landfills than plastic or paper."
"According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 20 percent of what goes into municipal landfills is food. Food waste tipped the scale of 35 million tons in 2012, the most recent year for which estimates are available."
"Forty to 50 percent of food waste comes from consumers, and 50 to 60 percent from businesses," says the EPA's Ashley Zanolli.
