This Thanksgiving, 88 percent of Americans will celebrate with a holiday feast among family and friends. On a day known for abundant portions, it's important to remember that what goes in the trash is almost as important as what's on our plate.
Each year Americans waste approximately 40 percent of their food and an average family throws away $2,500 worth of food. John Mandyck, Chief Sustainability Officer, takes a look at what impact that waste has on Thanksgiving day and how we can waste less this holiday and every other day of the year.
