Food waste is truly a global problem.
- UK households waste 4.5m tonnes of food each year.
- US households waste nearly a third of the food they acquire.
- And up to 40% of the food produced in India is wasted.
Consider what you can do to be part of the solution.
Is there a food recycling system where you live? If not, why not take action? Write to your local council or a member of your local government. It may not always feel like it, but your voice can make a difference. Doing nothing only achieves nothing.
Trewin Restorick, the chief executive of environmental charity Hubbub says:
If food waste was a country, it would be the world’s third biggest contributor to climate change.
He goes on to say that:
Transformational change can only be achieved by increasing the culinary skills of households, building greater awareness of the environmental impact of food waste, and creating a consistent nationwide food recycling system.
There’s nothing like a global pandemic to absolutely prove how connected we all are. Let’s work together to make our shared world a better place… in all ways.
