Food Scraps to Green Energy

Accessible version: http://www.epa.gov/region09/waste/features/foodtoenergy/
Food waste is the second largest portion of garbage going into landfills in the United States, accounting for over 30 million tons each year. Food Scraps are one of the most important materials to divert from landfills as they decompose to create methane, a potent greenhouse gas (GHG) that contributes to climate change. In order to decrease food waste and mitigate global warming, East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) is pioneering an innovative method of taking food scraps from restaurants and commercial food processors and using them as a valuable commodity to produce green renewable energy through anaerobic digestion, with the remains going to compost.

ABC News-Go Green : Eat less Beef

I was so happy to see mainstream media is finally getting a clue. This news report on ABC suggests you cut back on eating meat by 20% or more to help the environment. It’s true that that will help, but even better would be to go vegan and not only save the environment but save lives. In fact one of the lives’ you save may be your own! Go vegan for the environment, the animals and your own health. It’s the right thing to do. icon smile ABC News Go Green : Eat less Beef
