Earth Day 1970 - 2019: No Time To Waste

The first Earth Day was in 1970. What's one of the biggest changes our planet has seen since then? Earth's population has grown by 4 billion people! While our current food system produces enough for everyone, food is not distributed evenly. Shockingly, one-third of the food produced is never eaten at all. Since the processes used to make it contribute to climate change, all that waste is feeding greenhouse gases, but not people. See how you can be part of the solution.
