Tell Target to Stop Trashing "Ugly" Food

Target is one of the largest retail chains in the United States, but — unlike a growing number of other major retailers — the chain is still trashing perfectly edible, nutritious produce just because it isn't pretty.


As much as 40 percent of the food the US produces is thrown away — with a whopping ten percent trashed by retailers like Target before it can be purchased.

With 1,800 stores in the US, Target could make a big difference by reducing its food waste, but the retail chain needs to hear from you if it is to change its policy on discarding “unattractive” produce.
