Greenhouse gas emissions
Food waste releases a huge amount of greenhouse gases, whether its during transportation or when it is left to degrade in landfills.
Our growing population
Our growing population requires more and more food, so we need to come up with strategies to reduce the amount of food we waste.
Habitats around the globe have been lost or fragmented due to the conversion into farm land to feed us. If we can reduce food waste we can try to come up with innovative solutions to grow crops using our food leftovers.
