Guess how much Turkey we will waste tomorrow? Americans will toss an $282 million of uneaten turkey into the trash this Thanksgiving… contributing to the $165 billion in uneaten food Americans waste every year.
Along with trashing the uneaten turkeys, they’ll be wasting 105 billion gallons of water. That’s enough to supply New York City for more than 100 days.
There will also be the greenhouse gas emissions that are equivalent to 800,000 car trips from New York to San Francisco.Around the country, people will buy about 736 million pounds of turkey, of which about 581 million pounds will be actual meat.
