Awesome Vintage Posters on Wasting Food

Over at NRDC Switchboard, Dana Gunders writes Dear Government: Food Waste is a Matter of Urgency. Please Take It Seriously. It’s a significant post about a subject that is often ignored: that well over 40% of food in North America is wasted. Worldwide, almost a third of all food is lost to poor harvesting, lousy distribution, poor storage and ridiculous portion sizes. And it isn’t just the food wasted; it’s also the water, fertilizer and fuel.

We have collected images of these posters for a couple of years, so here is an illustrated version of Dana’s five recommendations to help solve the problem of food waste in America.
