Why Circular Food?
Our current linear model of take-make-waste is not sustainable. The way we produce, distribute, consume, and dispose of food is contributing to environmental degradation, loss of biodiversity, and climate change. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), approximately one-third of all food produced globally goes to waste each year. This amounts to 1.3 billion tons of edible food being discarded while millions go hungry.
What is Circular Food?
It’s food as nature intended
For decades we’ve been buying food, eating what we want, and wasting what’s left. This system has food coming in one end and waste coming out the other.
Instead of throwing food away, we must start viewing the food system as circular. By this I mean veg scraps and stuff we’d typically waste needs to be composted and turned back into soil ready for growing the next harvest.
With the cost of living, health, and climate crises we need this more than ever.
This is the start of a brand new campaign to raise awareness for Circular Food. It focuses on the detrimental impact of sending food waste to landfill and gives actionable solutions on how we can close the loop in our food systems.
