    Although there are many resources needed for food production, the smallest gesture towards saving food is an improvement. We need to utilize the most food possible in hopes to reduce our wastage by at least 15 percent. Twenty five million citizens do not have the means to get food on the tables, they could be fed by giving what we don't use or don't need.

    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 howing 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.
