Implementing nudges in food choices helps reducing foodwaste

🌍 Wasting food has serious environmental consequences, especially in large amounts. 🍽️ Currently, about 1/3 of the food produced globally for human consumption is lost or wasted, which amounts to a staggering 1.3 billion tons per year! 😱 To put it into perspective, that's equivalent to discarding about 226 Great Pyramids of Giza annually. 🌱 Reducing food waste is a crucial step towards a more sustainable future. 🍴 By adopting sustainable food consumption behaviors and implementing nudges in our food choices, we can make a positive impact. 🔗 Discover more about the environmental impact of food waste and how we can make a difference 👇 :

      Food is too "cheap" and people lack knowledge about it and don't trust their senses. These are two key factors behind the food waste we see these days

          Another great alternative to reduce the environmental impact of the food industry is to adopt more sustainable food consumption behaviors: we need to start using food to meet basic needs and bring a better quality of life, without jeopardizing the needs of future generations.

              Leftovers make great nutritious lunches for work and saves loads of money!! Especially pasta and rice dishes. Buy price reduced food at its use buy date and freeze it- its perfectly fine. You can do this with meat, fish and some vegetables like green beans. Saves money!
