Hello Saluki Green Action Team! As Thanksgiving draws near, meal planning begins. Afraid of having too many leftovers? This week we'll help you plan accordingly to save money and help the environment. 

Did You Know: When food rots, it produces methane gas? Methane is a strong greenhouse gas that actually has more than 21 times the potential to create global warming than carbon dioxide does. (Source: https://greenblue.org/ways-to-avoid-food-waste-over-thanksgiving/

Take Action Now: Prevent food waste by planning your menu carefully so you don't buy or prepare more food than you and/or your guests will consume.
