Webinar Description

Imagine walking out of the grocery store with 4 bags full of fresh food, dropping one, and not bothering to pick it up.

Seems crazy, but that’s essentially what most of us are doing all the time. The average American throws away over $35 each month in the form of uneaten food. Yup, the lettuce that went bad, the leftovers you never got around to eating, and the science experiment in the back of the fridge you’re hoping your husband will clean up one day—they all add up to 15 to 25 percent of the food you buy going uneaten.

In this webinar you will learn easy tips on how to reduce food waste.
