Exciting news today – I’ve become an official supporter of the Think.Eat.Save campaign! The campaign brings together a number of important international organisations and personalities to promote ways of minimising food waste, in support of the UN Secretary-General’s Zero Hunger Challenge.
A recent study revealed just how astonishing the rate of food waste is worldwide. About one third of all food production gets lost or wasted. In industrialized nations, retailers and consumers discard around 300 million tonnes of food that’s still fit for consumption – enough food to feed the estimated 900 million people who are hungry in the world.
I’m so passionate about this cause! I think we can all do our little part to minimise the amount of food we waste in our homes and businesses – with just a few simple changes to our habits, we can make significant improvements. The Think.Eat.Save website is a great start for news and resources on how to do so.
So, if you haven’t taken a look already, I encourage you to head over to www.thinkeatsave.org now and start making some positive changes to your food waste habits at home.
