Living Green: Reuse, Recycle

It’s funny to think that the old, familiar phase–Reduce, Reuse, Recycle–also applies to the food we eat, but it does, says Darby Hoover, an NRDC expert on solid waste. Individual consumers can donate extra canned and nonperishable foods. Restaurants, institutions, and commercial venues can go one step further, donating perishable items, too. Feeding America, a nonprofit hunger-relief group, maintains a database of local food banks that participate in food recovery efforts: http://feedingamerica.org/how-we-fight-hunger/our-partners.aspx.
