More than 40 percent of the food produced in the U.S. is thrown away and goes into landfills. Much of it comes from uneaten food from restaurants or food that goes bad in our homes.
One way to reduce this problem is composting. This week we speak to Beadle Beadlecomb at Compost Nashville about how restaurants are using his service to responsibly dispose of their waste. And if you go to the Compost Nashville website, you can see a list of restaurants that use his service. If you visit one of them, consider it an opportunity to tell them thanks for what they do.
