LOL Tip #2 for Living Healthy on a Healthy Planet

This is one that I can say for sure, for sure, for sure, that I will not be participating in. Nope. No way. Not going to happen!!!

Eat Out of a Dumpster

Americans toss about half of the food we produce, equal to 1,400 calories of wasted food per person per day. That not only squanders food that could feed those who don't have enough, it's a tremendous waste of the energy used to produce, package, and transport it. Filmmaker Jeremy Seifert illustrated one solution to this problem in his documentary Dive!, which demonstrated the astonishing amount of fresh, edible, perfectly clean food that gets tossed out by large retailers and supermarkets. Dumpster diving doesn't appeal? Help solve this problem by saving and using your own leftovers, volunteering at a local food bank, and urging your markets to donate the edible food they can't sell.
