It’s time to start a new series on the ole blog! Reading other blogs and news stories about people producing little to no waste has gotten me feeling pretty bad with how much we throw away. Especially when it comes to food. Did you know roughly one third of the food produced in the world for human consumption every year — approximately 1.3 billion tonnes — gets lost or wasted? Every year, consumers in rich countries waste almost as much food (222 million tonnes) as the entire net food production of sub-Saharan Africa (230 million tonnes).
