Leftover Pumpkins? Feed a Pig!
By djsheryl on November 2, 2022
Now that Halloween is over, what do you do with the leftover pumpkins? Don’t throw them away! Every year, over a billion pounds of pumpkins end up in the landfill and that’s bad for our environment. In landfills, the pumpkins decompose and release methane, a greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change.
Unlike leftover candy, it’s not easy to eat a leftover pumpkin…unless you are a farm animal. Pumpkins make a great, nutritious treat for farm animals and there are farmers all over the country welcoming donations.
Find a farm near you by visiting Pumpkins for Pigs and plugging in your zip code. The environment wins. The pigs win! We all win!
