From an influx of food waste discounts to advanced composting technologies, there are many new ways to reduce global food waste. This infographic designed by Sustainable America called 'Can We Feed 7 Billion People?' inspired an article in the Wall Street Journal to raise even more awareness about this pressing environmental issue.

The infographic displays how much food is wasted and lost around the world. With staggering statistics -- like 1.3 billion tons of food goes to waste every year (enough to feed the 868 million hungry people worldwide) -- and solutions individuals can implement at home, the chart is a wealth of information. To reduce global food waste individually, they suggest juicing old produce, freezing food and making shopping lists among other tips.
