Challenge 6:  Reduce Food Waste

Organic waste, of which 15% is food waste, is the largest single contributing source to landfills. Food waste transported to landfills decomposes, releasing potent greenhouse gasses, especially methane, that contributes to climate change.

To combat food waste on a local level, WasteRightSac helps businesses meet state mandates for diverting recyclables, food waste, and green waste from landfill disposal and reduce greenhouse gasses, but there’s more work to be done!

Do you have an idea that can reduce food waste? Join Startup Weekend Sacramento: Sustainable Revolution to turn that idea into a business plan.
