“Bonnie Webber, Vice Chair of the New York City Group of the Sierra Club, said the city needs to put more resources into educating the public about food waste. ‘Studies have shown that a better use of the city’s time and money would be to go to the source, and educate people to the amount of energy, water, fertilizer and soil used to grow food, and, in turn, wasted when the food is not consumed,’ Webber said.

Webber suggested that subways should display the PSAs from the ‘Save the Food’ campaign, which was launched by The Ad Council, in partnership with the Natural Resources Defense Council, in 2016. ‘If people knew that trashing one egg is wasting 55 gallons of water, it could change their behavior,’ Webber said.”
