High-Class Dumpster Diving

Did you know Californians throw away nearly 6 million tons of food scraps or food waste each year? When it hits the landfills, it decomposes and creates greenhouse gases.

“In this city of excess and squalor, where many eat like kings while many others barely stave off starvation, much still goes to waste.”

Bon appetit.
