Tons of food waste crams landfills, adds to methane gas | Hunger Solutions Minnesota - 0 views

  •  
    It seems that Bloom is a major source when it comes to food waste because this is the second article that quotes him. This article gives statistics and information everyone should be aware of. They also give this great example of how America has a great obesity problem and that they say to chuck away the last few slices of that pizza instead of eating them!! Wrong! maybe we should just not buy the pizza if we do not need to eat it! The examples just show how we don't really think twice before throwing food away.

  •  
    This page gives you great ways on how to reduce food waste and save money. The advice that caught my attention right away was the one where it tells you to know the people that you are going to be cooking for. It is true why cook for four people that eat plenty when only one or two of them would really enjoy a meal.

    I really enjoyed reading this article because it ties in with food waste what we have been taking about. For an instance I thought they were the same back to going "green" it is good to learn the difference to comprehend both. This is also very helpful for those of us who would like to help but do not know how.
  •  
    To achieve a sustainable society then food waste must be recycled as opposed to being sent to landfill sites around the country. We all know the problems that our planet is suffering through global warming that is partly aided by the greenhouse gasses that are produced when food waste is sent to landfill and the ensuing fluctuations in temperature that is suffered around the globe.
  •  
    I really like your comment Norma i Read the same thing but saw it in a different light. But then after reading about your going green comment i thought about how ironic it is that color is being considered a sustainability method. It is great when you can see something from someone else point of view and get more from something you already agreed with.

    As you said and the article says energy is so important to us to keep life going. Creating a better source of energy would be a big advancement to help this cause. It is great that other cities are taking action to make a change.
  •  
    This article explains the importance of energy greatly, and the fact there is more to energy than "keeping the lights on". Energy needs to be sustainable for the future generations needs of energy, the need for energy won't go away.
  •  
    I tried to see what was important on this article but it wasn't very easy for me personally to grasp. I see that you 3 did find the point of the sustainability with electricity. I find it funny that we are always leaving lights on when we leave a room and think nothing of it until we are told it will save us money or that we are wasting something we really take for granted.
  •  
    This article states that sustainability and energy interconnect in many ways. I agree with Dominique we use energy for everything we do, but hopefully we don't take advantage of the resources we have now and end up leaving are future heirs high and dry.
