Most people don’t realize how much food they throw away every day — from uneaten leftovers to spoiled produce to parts of fruits and vegetables that could be eaten or repurposed.
While 1 in 8 people struggle with food scarcity we’re still throwing away almost 40% of our food supply. Besides the enormous amount of resources it takes to produce and ship our food in the first place when it’s thrown away, it just sits in a landfill generating tons of methane. Preventing food from going to waste is one of the easiest and most powerful actions you can take to save money and lower your climate change footprint by reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and conserving natural resources.
This is a green challenge that could easily become a part of your everyday life. You can achieve this by avoiding overbuying, composting, learning proper storage methods, and using leftovers as much as possible.
Take this Sankalp now and avoid excessive food waste.
