How Much Food Do You Throw Away?
A new study found that people throw away about half of the meat they buy from the grocery store – and more than half of the fruits and vegetables they buy.
This is the first study to offer a data-driven glimpse into the refrigerators of American homes, and provides an important framework for efforts to decrease food waste, Roe said. It was published online this month and will appear in the November print issue of the journal Resources, Conservation & Recycling.

How organized is your fridge? Is everything pretty fresh in there? Or, is there stuff in your fridge that is way past the expiration date?
