Each year, between 30-40% of all food in the US is lost or wasted. Organic waste is the number one item entering our landfills by volume and is responsible for more greenhouse gas emissions than the entire US airline industry.
The Zero Food Waste Act would support state and local governments and Native nations to develop a circular food economy, invest in community health and jobs, and curb greenhouse gas emissions. By leading here at home, the US can show the world how to invest in food systems where people and nature thrive.
Food is too valuable to throw away. We are calling on Congress to act now to reduce food loss and waste 50% by 2030. Ask your representative to co-sponsor the Zero Food Waste Act today.
