This infographic on food waste was in honor of World Food Day last week. From ESL Ecocleen Services, 'The Shocking Impact of Wasting Food' focuses specifically on the United Kingdom but also emphasizes the issue is one of a global nature.
According to the chart, almost 50% of food waste in the UK occurs at home, with fresh potatoes, slices of bread and glasses of milk being the biggest contributors in 2013. While some waste is unavoidable, like chicken bones and egg shells, they can still be composted. The infographic offers facts and tips so people can take action and make a commitment to waste less when 870 million people are hungry. It covers subjects like leftovers, grocery stores, eating out at restaurants and school lunches.
