Food waste is a major contributor to climate change, through the production of methane when it biodegrades. Up to one billion people worldwide don’t have enough food every day and yet in more developed countries we waste about 1/3 of all food produced. If all food waste was saved then we have the potential to save the carbon equivalent of taking one in five cars off the road. As educators we must make sure students know how to tackle food waste at home.
Our web pages have lots of information about how food waste is recycled.
