LeanPath recently posted “7 Eye-Opening Food Waste Videos to Share with Your Team,” on their Food Waste Focus Blog. LeanPath, helps facilities monitor, track, and reduce wasted food using tracking software, data analysis, and custom waste alerts. One video, “Food Waste: A Story of Excess,” highlights the statistics around food waste. For example, in the U.S., we waste approximately 4% of our food during food distribution, 6% at the supermarkets, and 15% at restaurants. By saving 15% of the food that is usually thrown away we can could feed 25 million Americans every year.

Estimate food waste at your business using RecyclingWorks Food Waste Estimator Tool.

Another video, “Food Waste = Money Waste,” shows the direct relationship between wasted food and wasted money. As chefs chop dollars and sauté coins, the financial impact of wasted food in both the front-of-house and back-of-house is clear. RecyclingWorks has helped businesses and institutions implement food waste reduction programs and some businesses have seen significant cost savings.

RecyclingWorks in Massachusetts assists businesses and institutions with recycling and food waste reduction through composting and food donation. To speak to a recycling expert, call our hotline: (888) 254-5525 or email us at
