Reducing Your Kitchen Carbon Footprint

  • Topic Info:Many people are interested in becoming more eco-friendly but aren't quite sure which steps to take.

    Composting is a popular option for reducing your carbon footprint. When biodegradable items (banana peel, half-eaten apple, etc.) are sent to a landfill, they will break down but they still emit greenhouse gases. If you're not comfortable setting up a compost station yourself, there are often community options that will pick up your biodegradable scraps and perform the composting for you. 

    Liz Weiss, MS, RDN, joins host Lisa Davis to discuss simple ways to reduce your kitchen carbon footprint, as well as share some of her favorite recipes that contribute to a more eco-friendly existence. She also provides some statistics on how much food is wasted each year.
