NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Americans will be wasting millions of pounds of turkey this Thanksgiving.
Estimates are a third of the turkey meat cooked for Thursday will end up in the trash.
Sasha Lyutse with the Natural Resources Defense Council says their study shows some 204 million pounds of turkey is headed for the garbage. Producing each pound of turkey requires resources equal to a car driven 11 miles.
