Campaign against food waste

The United Nations (UN) launched a new global campaign to dramatically cut the 1.3 billion tons (about one-third of all food produced) of food lost or wasted each year by consumers and food retailers.

The campaign motto is “Think, Eat, Save – Reduce Your Foodprint” and the campaign website provides simple tips which allow users to make food waste pledges, and provides a platform for those running campaigns to exchange ideas and create a global culture of sustainable consumption of food.
