Latest figures indicate that households throw out at least 5 million tonnes of food every year. For every 5 bags of groceries we buy... we throw 1 in the bin. This calculates to billions of dollars of rotting landfill producing a greenhouse gas 25 times more potent than the CO2 pouring out of our cars' exhausts.
Over 60% of adults in the developed world and at least 1 in 4 kids are overweight or obese with a shocking 70% of these children destined to carry this chronic condition into adulthood. (ABS). In the developed world we're also reporting food allergies and intolerance at elevating rates. (ASCIA).
Families are mixing an obesity epidemic with financial strain, adding a pinch of intolerance and a pint of environmental stress to create the ultimate pressure cooker situation.
