You 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 2016 we composted 3317 tons of food waste.  By not sending that to the landfill, we reduced methane emissions, resulting in a savings that is illustrated below.
