$160 billion in wasted food in the US

Some people just can't get enough environmental news! This just in from Bianca, who finished the class just a few days ago: France is making it illegal to throw away edible food. How cool is that? Think about what else could be saved rather than throwing out this huge amount of valuable stuff. A few years ago our class talked about it, including one student's penchant for dumpster diving. He said he'd eaten sushi he found dumpster diving- that was a little farther than I'd go, but man, billions of dollars is being thrown out! Man.
