Merici Green Tip #14 - You will be shocked!

I was astounded to hear this last week at the Q&A session with the Director of the film 2040. In Australia up to 40% of the waste in an average household bin is food (Foodwise).  Rotting food emits methane, a gas that is twenty-five times more warming in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide.
