We all waste food, that’s a fact. Another fact: no one likes throwing away food. It’s a waste of money and resources, contributes to environmental problems and, well, it just feels wrong.

But something happens between the grocery store and the garbage can that leads each of us to toss almost 25 pounds of food per month.

What if we told you that there are proven ways to waste less food and save money without making drastic changes to your lifestyle?

Today, we’re excited to launch a new online program that can help you do just that. It’s called I Value Food: Too Good to Waste, and it’s based on successful strategies developed by the U.S. EPA. Through this program, many families have reduced food waste by up to 50%, which can save a family up to $1,600 per year.

The program shows how, by making small shifts in how you shop, store, and prepare food, you can save money, toss less, eat well, simplify your life — and keep the valuable resources used to produce and distribute food from going to waste.

Track your food waste with I Value Food Too Good to WasteThe Program Involves:

• Measuring preventable food waste for 2 weeks using a quart container.

• Trying out proven waste-reduction strategies while continuing to track waste for 4 weeks.

• Discovering how small shifts can yield big savings!</em>

Weekly emails, printable resources and key tips will keep you on track and guide you through the challenge. All you need is a computer or smartphone and a 1-quart container.
