“Making a new product requires a lot of materials and energy—raw materials must be extracted from the earth. Every year, Americans throw away 50 billion dollars worth of food in the trash. Around 85% of the garbage is sent to a dump, or landfill, where it can take ~200 years to decompose.
I designed an environmentally conscious web and print publication that focuses on the different uses of food scraps. Instead of throwing scraps away, why not try to find ways to reuse them? I want to educate people how to cut down the amount of waste they produce and stimulate their creativity through instructive projects that they can do with leftover ingredients. Many food scraps can be re-purposed into something completely different and useful for yourself and the environment.”
