Stop throwing out food

Synopsis
Any time food is thrown out, all the resources and energy that went into it—from the time the seed was planted or before the animal was born—is wasted. But preventing food waste can be relatively easy. If we all mindfully change a few habits, however, we can significantly reduce the amount of wasted food.  Take Sankalp now and Stop throwing out food. Also, encourage others to take this Sankalp.
What will happen?
  • Cost savings on labor through more efficient handling, preparation, and storage of food that will be used.
  • Cost savings when purchasing only as much food as needed, and avoiding additional costs of disposal.
  • Reduced methane emissions from landfills and a lower carbon footprint.
  • Better management of energy and resources, preventing pollution involved in the growing, manufacturing, transporting, and selling of food.
  • Community benefits by providing donated, untouched, and safe food that would otherwise be thrown out.

According to a 2016 study by The Natural Resource Defense Council, American families throw out approximately 25% of the food and beverages they buy, costing the average family of four between 105884 rupees and 176481 rupees every year — even more in today’s rupees. There are also energy, production costs, and resources involved in the production and transport of this thrown food. You can save these by matching your food purchases to your actual consumption through menu planning and grocery lists.
