40-percent of food in the United States goes uneaten and the majority of that wasted food is fresh produce. On this episode, we examine the growing problem of wasted fresh produce and the negative impact on the environment—from wasting our resources to filling our landfills to the dangerous methane gas emissions.

Andrea Collins, a sustainable food systems specialist for the National Resources Defense Council, joins Linda to discuss what consumers can do to cut down on fresh produce waste—from refrigerator storage strategies to meal planning to composting.
