Fielder Museum
1616 W. Abram St
Arlington , TX

Presenter: Stephen Sturdivant is an environmental engineer at the Environmental Protection Agency’s Region 6 office under the Sustainable Materials Management Program. This program seeks to use materials in the most productive way with an emphasis on using less and assure we have sufficient resources to meet today’s needs and those of the future. Stephen graduated with a mechanical engineering degree from the University of North Texas and has more than 10 years of experience in environmental protection.

Program Description: The term “food waste” is commonly used to describe food unfit for human consumption that is sent for disposal. Wasted food is a growing problem in our modern society and an untapped opportunity. EPA estimates that more food reaches landfills and incinerators than any other single material in our everyday trash, constituting 21.6 percent of discarded municipal solid waste. This program will delve into the reasons why we should reduce food waste and ways we can make that happen.
