My partner found this link to an article I found absolutely astonishing. Apparently America wastes 40% of the food it buys. Can they afford that in these days of austerity? Can the world afford for those resources to end up in landfill? Can the starving world afford to see that continue? My goodness! Seemingly, the result of these findings has caused scientists to try and make food last even longer,. Why not just BUY LESS? Maybe then folk could afford their mortgages, reduce their loans, get food prices down and recover financially, at least a bit. America, re-think your lifestyles, please!
Here’s the link to the article. See what you think for yourself.
