Recycling food waste helps us all tackle climate change, reveals report
The fight against climate change begins at home, a new report published by Zero Waste Scotland today reveals.
The report, published to coincide with Recycle Week 2018, shows that less waste and more recycling, especially of food waste, are crucial in reducing our carbon impact. The Carbon Metric, an innovative tool developed by Zero Waste Scotland, shows how waste reduction and sustainable waste management plays a critical role in the fight against climate change. It measures the whole-life carbon impacts of Scotland’s waste, from resource extraction and manufacturing emissions, right through to waste management emissions, regardless of where in the world these impacts occur.
