Is Your Kitchen as Eco-Friendly and Sustainable as It Could Be?

Because wasted food equals wasted money, here’s how to improve your practices

Each year, 119 billion pounds of food is wasted in the United States, according to the nonprofit Feeding America. With high food prices and inflation, that’s lost money that we’ll never get back. Join sustainability professionals Diana Andrew and Nicole Brose in this previously recorded Q&A, as they share how to save money, reduce food waste and become more eco-friendly by planning your meals, storing food correctly and creatively using leftovers.
