    3. Food waste is a common bad behavior and needs media attention. The US wastes food worth approximately $162 billion – or about 60 million tons of food per year. The cost of landfilling food costs the US government about $1.5 billion a year. The UAE wastes about 3.27 million tons of food annually.
