How costly is food waste to us & the planet
The issue of food waste in Australia is something we all should be aware of, as it is a common misconception that the majority of food waste came from big supermarkets and restaurants. However, in actual fact 75% of all food that is sent to landfill comes from our households.
Equally as important as the environmental and economic impact, is the issue of food insecurity. It is unacceptable that many people struggle to access enough food, yet there is more than enough produced every year to eliminate the issue.
Below are some eye-watering facts from the amazing people at Foodbank Australia.
We believe that we need to fundamentally change the way we feed ourselves and help others whom are in desperate need of food. It is one of the reasons we created Airgarden and why we are passionate about enabling everyone to reduce their food waste, eat fresher and healthier food, save money, and help the environment.
On average, Australian households throw away $1000 of food every year, $300 more than the cost of an Airgarden, which will also yield $1200-1400 worth of food each and every year.
Say goodbye to throwing away unused fruit and veg too!!! let's change the way we grow, eat and consume. Let Airgarden be your first step in conquering your battle with food waste.
