One Third - a rotten exhibition

One Third - a rotten exhibition | Ecological Footprint | Scoop.it

The resulting collection One Third is both beautiful and politically repugnant. The name of the collection signifies how much food we waste globally every year. Underneath each photo Klaus notes food miles, carbon footprint, and water used.

 

Members of the UN's Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), who authored the food waste report, were the first to see the collection in a special showing in Rome.

 

Right now, One Third is in Nairobi, with stops in Moscow, Vienna and California to follow. However, we've posted some choice examples here.

So next time we chuck out something grisly from the fruit bowl or vegetable crisper, maybe pause and think how it could have been used before heading to landfill.
