Today, an estimated 1/3 of all the food produced in the world goes to waste. That’s equal about 1.3 billion tons of fruits, vegetables, etc that either never leave the farm, get lost or spoiled during distribution, or are thrown away.
When food goes to the landfill and rots, methane (a greenhouse gas) is produced.
This contributes to climate change.
