There are many reasons to prevent food waste. After all, wasting food wastes all of the valuable resources used to grow, harvest, transport and store food in the first place. In a recent report, the Natural Resources Defense Council found that wasted food is responsible for wasting 19% of all U.S. cropland, 18% of all farming fertilizer use, 21% of our landfill content, 21% of our agricultural water usage, and 2.6% of all greenhouse gas emissions.
What better way to start off your new year than by determining to be kind wherever you go? After all, random acts of kindness can bring beauty to a person's day on both the receiving end and the giving end. Here at Extreme Community Makeover, we like to create a culture of kindness.
For our annual year in review message, I would like to say thank you for a year filled with "Getting Your Hands Dirty" while "Being Kind" and "Doing Good". Thank you for showing up in the lives of your Denver neighbors in 2019!
