As much as 35% of food is wasted. Grocery stores and restaurants often bin perfectly edible food. Much of what goes into landfills could be composted. Filling bellies and reducing methane emissions are goals of the twin Zero Food Waste and COMPOST Acts of 2021.
Join us this Wednesday as we discuss how to bring about change on local, state and federal levels to achieve these goals. This will be mostly discussion.
Please come prepared to introduce yourself, tell us what’s happening in your community and offer suggestions for how we can move forward.

Compostable Organics Out Of Landfill (COOLNow)
April 13, 2022, 12 - 2pm EST
The Compostable Organics Out Of Landfill (COOLNow) Chair Richard Anthony invites compost and resource management professionals and community organizers to attend this urgent call to action.
We will discuss current initiatives, brainstorm and plan Spring activities, monthly state or regional virtual meetings and quarterly network meetings.
This campaign will support local organizers in expanding their programs to remanage organics out of landfills and into composting facilities in order to reduce methane emissions and promote healthy soils.
