For the first time ever, the U.S. government last year issued a food waste reduction goal, calling for a 50 percent cut by 2030. But how do we get there?
Businesses could save nearly $2bn a year by cutting the amount of half-eaten entrees, unsold milk and other foods that get tossed into trash bins across the US by 20% over the next decade, according to a new report.
In a sustainable future, light from the sun powers all things, used water is filtered, then returned to our aquifers, food production is localized, toxic chemicals are eliminated, everything is recycled, traded fairly, and fully used. It’s a dream for some, and a project for others, but for now, truly fair trade products are hard to find.
