News Center Maine features Maine Home Food Waste Challenge
News Center Maine featured the Maine Home Food Waste Challenge, which challenges Mainers to take a closer look at their habits when it comes to throwing away their food by collecting their waste and surveying how much they’re throwing away on a weekly basis. Susanne Lee, faculty fellow at the University of Maine Mitchell Center for Sustainability Solutions, is leading the challenge. “We could see even for our team, we had a lot, still more behavior changes to go through. But such a simple thing of collecting it and having to be face-to-face with it. Could we actually be keeping this as a leftover and eating this tomorrow? Could we actually make something else out of this that might be usable?” Lee said.
