Key Messages – Sustainability: Reducing Greenhouse Gases (GHG’s) and food waste
- Dairy is good for you and made with care for the planet. From the farm to your fridge, U.S. dairy is taking steps to reduce food waste and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
- The carbon footprint of a glass of milk is two-thirds less than it was 70 years ago, yet it still has the same nutritional benefits and great taste.
- U.S. dairy innovates for the future – in new products, technologies and on-farm practices that will contribute to healthier people, planet and animals. Today, there are dairy farms across the country that are using new technologies to turn manure into biogas that powers local communities while helping to eliminate food waste from local businesses.
Farmers can help deliver these messages and spotlight dairy’s critical role in the path to a greener planet with these social posts!
