Reduce Your Foodprint What’s it all about? THINK Do you consider yourself a conscious consumer? Do you try to conserve water when possible, turn out the lights when not in use, drive to maximize your fuel efficiency and avoid making choices that are wasteful? Do you take pride in having a responsible organization or business, or fancy yourself a progressive city planner or inhabitant of a progressive city? If so, you might be surprised to learn that you may inadvertently be contributing to a global waste epidemic in which nearly one third of all the food you buy or serve is thrown out before being used; food too good to waste. But don’t despair, you are not alone and small actions have a big impact. Just THINK about it! EAT It goes without saying that for each and every one of us, eating is a crucial part of our daily lives. For some, the act of eating represents pure sustenance; for others, the art of eating is a ritual of culinary delights. But whatever your relationship to food, we can all be smarter — about the way we eat it, serve it, shop for it and dispose of it. We hope you will find all of the necessary tools and resources you need to reduce your foodprint here. So EAT up… but do so mindfully. SAVE In food-secure areas around the globe, the very act of food shopping, cooking, eating and trashing can be a mindless activity. Little, if any, attention is paid to the way the food arrives on our grocer’s shelves, let alone the acts of harvesting, manufacturing, packaging, shipping and merchandising the food that sustains our daily lives. It is therefore not surprising that there is little awareness of the amount of food that is lost and wasted along the entire food supply chain during production, distribution, consumption and disposal. Yet the economic, social and environmental implications of this enormous food loss and waste are staggering, and are continuing to grow as a real threat. It’s time to SAVE… for People, Personal Health, Planet & Pocket.
