GHG 2017You can input the data above into the EPA Waste Reduction Model to see how much greenhouse gas we’ve prevented from entering the atmosphere. Then you can use their Greenhouse Gas Equivalency Calculator to find out how that translates into every day greenhouse gas reduction scenarios. For example, in 2017 we composted 3326 tons of food waste. By not sending that to the landfill, we reduced methane emissions, resulting in a savings of 2392 Metric Tons of Carbon Dioxide Equivalent.  That is the amount of greenhouse gas savings equivalent to:
