New Campaign Encourages Oregonians To Prevent Food Waste

(Portland, OR) -- Oregonians could save 16-hundred dollars a year by eliminating food waste. That's the message of a new campaign created by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality called "Bad Apple." The department says 25- to 40-percent of all food is wasted, and up to 70-percent of the wasted food could be saved if it was used as leftovers, put in better packaging, or frozen. The website Don't-let good-food-go-bad-dot-org has tips on how to keep food from going to waste.
