Zero Waste Food Storage

There are 3 main human-originated sources of methane: the extraction of fossil fuels, the agriculture and livestock industry, and food sitting in landfills. Though less popular than carbon dioxide, Methane is exponentially more potent over a 100 year timeframe, well within the span that scientists estimate the catastrophic impacts of climate change will occur. 

By reducing your contributions to food waste in landfills and helping food last longer through proper storage and disposing of it through composting are powerful yet accessible tools to reduce global methane emissions.
