Hi everyone, as we have the tidy club and have had posts and polls on food waste here are some shocking statistics.
Globally around 1/3 of all food produced is wasted, in the UK £1.9 tonnes of food are wasted annually when we have people going without food throughout the world.
Food is perishable and fragile so there is bound to be waste but this seems a terrible waste when we have people starving and are being told of global warming by farm animals, so we blame the poor cattle and carry on putting our consumerism first.
Here's a couple of links one is the Food Waste Reduction Roadmap and Fare share, stating what they are trying to achieve to reduce food waste.
If we all make an effort collectively we can all play our part for everyones benefit and I like that.
