Food waste costs each family in America big time — growing by 50 percent since 1974 according to a study in PLoS ONE by Kevin D. Hall, Juen Guo, Michael Dore, and Carson C. Chow.
“Then I did the math, and I realized I just threw out $10 of food that week. So rather than stick all my money into soil, my husband and I made a list of all we were wasting.”
