The Week of Monday, August 10

Californians throw away nearly 6 million tons of food scraps or food waste each year, representing about 18 percent of all the material that goes to landfills. The  emissions resulting from the decomposition of organic wastes in land-fills have been identified as a significant source of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions contributing to global climate change.  California’s new Mandatory Commercial Organics Recycling law (AB 1826) requires businesses to recycle their organic waste.  More information can be found here, which provides links to resources and tools for various business sectors (restaurants, schools, hospitality, etc) to reduce thier food waste: https://greenbusinessca.org/green-tips/id/79/.
