Why are you doing that? You still have so much food left on your plate.
Yeah I know but I'm so full I can't finish it. There's nothing I can do with it anyway.
No wonder Canada has such a bad rep when it comes to food waste. It's little things like this that add to it. It's not just supermarkets and restaurants that are the culprits, we play a huge role at home too. Did you know that the average Canadian consumer throws out around 170 kg of food annually?
I do know that the life cycle of wasted food relates to greenhouse gas emissions and that it has a huge negative environmental and socio-economic impact. It produces aro8und 193 million tonnes of greenhouse gas per year I think...
Facts: Canadians waste $31 billion in food annually yet 1 in 8 Canadian families struggle to put food on the table. Think of it this way: you just bought 4 bags of groceries and as you're walking out to the parking lot, you drop one bag.
