Part 2 - Food, Waste and Climate Workshop Series

In part 2 of our Food, Waste and Climate series we took a look at waste, particularly food waste, and how it has an impact on our environment. 80 billion pounds of food is thrown away every year in the US, where it is the largest component taking up space in US landfills. If food waste were a country, it would be the third-largest emitter of greenhouse gases behind China and the U.S.


Why and how is food wasted? What are the benefits of preventing food waste? What are some ways to prevent food waste?


To find out, view the recorded workshop below and then access the Google Classroom for discussion questions, videos, articles, a quiz and exit ticket you can share with your students.
