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).
Not unlike burning fossil fuels (which releases CO2), food rotting in landfills creates greenhouse gas emissions (in the form of methane).
