Food waste emissions devastates our planet

Growing, producing and transporting food uses most of the fresh water available on the planet and then 40% of the food produced is thrown away and left to produce methane in landfills. If food waste was a country, it would rank third in the world for greenhouse gas emissions (just behind the United States and China).
