  • WORLD PROBLEMAs of 2011, 1.3 billion tons of food are lost or wasted annually (about one third of the global food production).

    *****

    Loss & wastage occurs on all steps in the food supply chain. In low-income countries, most loss occurs during production, while in developed countries much food (approx. 100 kgs or 220lbs per person and year) is wasted at the consumption stage.

  • DOMESTIC PROBLEMIn 2010, 73 billion disposable cups & plastic water bottles in the U.S. ended up in landfill (about 230 per person).

    *****Those had drained the natural resources while producing million of pounds of waste & high levels greenhouse gases, which cause the global phenomenon called CLIMATE CHANGE.

  • ECOLOGICAL FOOTPRINT is a measure of human demand on the Earth's ecosystem.

    Note to speakers: If it helps you explain to your audiences here are two examples of what one tonne of carbon is in practical terms- A transatlantic return flight from London to New York will emit more than a tonne of carbon per passenger.- Leaving ten twin fluorescent light fittings on for eight hours a day will produce one tonne of carbon a year. - Reducing the heating temperature in an office by just 1C can save 30 tonnes of carbon a year.

    No one can absolutely know the future, but this does not stop us making forecasts and modifying our behavior accordingly
