Seoul Metropolitan City on Food Waste

Seoul Metropolitan Government has launched several campaigns to raise awareness of the threat of climate change. Recently, the following sign has also appeared in the Seoul Metro. The caption reads
“We can reduce the amount of food waste that causes such pain to the earth”
The illustration shows the entire world as bits of leftover food. There is a tremendous problem with food waste in Korea–as in China wasting food is often seen as a sign of living well. As a whole, however, Korea is far less wasteful of natural resources than the United States. I wonder if any American cities are carrying on similar campaigns?
