Summer Reading: American Wasteland

I’m reading American Wasteland: How America Throws Away Nearly Half of It’s Food written by Jonathan Bloom. The book starts with the startling statistic “Everyday, Americans waste enough food to fill the Rose Bowl…the 90,000 seat football field.”

All food has a warterfootprint. We (Americans) throw away between a quarter to a half of the food we grow with scarce water resources. Jonathan Bloom details why we waste so much food and provides ideas on how to stop the waste. Jonathan’s blog WastedFood.com is worth following.

You can read my ideas on how to reduce waste at a past blog, Food Waste and Water.
