Save One Third of Food

Save 1/3 of Food
1/3 of all food produced globally goes to waste. We waste not just food, but all the natural resources which go into producing it. We must start to fight food waste today - we must Save 1/3.
WHY IT MATTERS
WE ARE DEVOURING OUR PLANET
The way we produce and consume food is the single biggest threat to our planet.
It uses the largest portion of all land and freshwater on Earth.
It’s the biggest cause of deforestation and toxic greenhouse gas emissions which are causing climate change.
It threatens wildlife on land and is causing fish stocks to collapse.
WHERE IT'S LOST
YET 1/3 OF ALL THIS ECOLOGICAL IMPACT IS ACTUALLY AVOIDABLE
BECAUSE WE WASTE 1/3 OF THE FOOD WE PRODUCE
If we can combat food waste and instead Save 1/3, we will go a long way towards building a sustainable future for life on Earth.
SAVE 1/3 OF MORE THAN JUST FOOD
Producing even a tiny serving of food consumes a big chunk of natural resources and generates a lot of pollution.
If we avoid waste, we ensure that those resources were not used pointlessly.
It also means we can be more efficient with our food distribution and reduce the need to produce excess food as we try to feed a growing population.
WE THROW PERFECTLY EDIBLE FOOD AWAY
About 1.3 billion tons of perfectly edible food is discarded every year - an astonishing amount of it deliberately.
FROM FARM TO FORK, FOOD IS LOST AT EVERY STEP OF THE JOURNEY
WHAT YOU CAN DO
FIGHT FOOD WASTE ON ALL FRONTS
