How Does Food Waste Lead to Sea-Level Rise?
Uneaten food decomposes and releases gases. Production resources, like transportation, are wasted.
Gases, like CO2, build up in the atmosphere like a blanket.
This traps heat and warms our atmosphere.
The warming atmosphere melts land-ice and warms the ocean.
Warm water expands and leads to sea-level rise.
Rising sea levels threaten our communities.
