Cutting Food Waste


Address the Excess: A Recipe for Cutting Food Waste. Peter Lehner, TEDxManhattan, 2013.

According to a report by the Natural Resources Defense Council, Americans are tossing up to 40 percent of the food supply each year, along with all the resources used to produce food that never gets eaten. Food waste occurs at home, on the farm, and in supermarkets.

In this TEDx Talk, NRDC’s executive director Peter Lehner explores the low-tech, tried-and-true solutions proven to reduce food waste and save money for consumers and businesses alike. It’s essential that we start putting more of these solutions into action.
