How Big of a Problem Food Waste Really Is?
It's so unimaginably appalling that we'll give you a couple examples:
1. Every second, 30 000 € worth of food are wasted and 97 000 kg of carbon dioxide are released into atmosphere from the decaying piles of discarded food.
2. By 2050, 2% of the total global greenhouse gas emissions will be caused by food waste alone.
3. If we just save 1/4 of the world's food waste, we can already feed 800 million undernourished people worldwide.
Instead of converting forests into farms to produce more food, why don't we just focus on saving the 1/3 of the world's food that goes to waste?
