US Wastes 133 Billion Pounds, or 141 Trillion Calories, of Food Annually ("scandalously wasteful")

US Wastes 133 Billion Pounds, or 141 Trillion Calories, of Food Annually ("scandalously wasteful") | Food Dumping and Wastage | Scoop.it
Every year the U.S. wastes some 141 trillion calories of food, the equivalent of 1,249 calories wasted per person per day or about 133 billion pounds.

Before you scrape the leftovers on your plate into the garbage, take heed: every single year the U.S. wastes some 141 trillion calories of food, the equivalent of 1,249 calories wasted per person per day. In this world, where 7.1 billion people are suffering from under-nourishment, we should really think twice before biting off more than we can chew.

The latest figures on food wasting come from the USDA, who says in 2010 Americans wasted some 133 billion pounds of food. In a 430 billion pound food supply, that’s about one-third of the whole wasted. Economically, it’s $161.6 billion in food wastage.

This wasted food isn’t only the stuff being scraped from your plate when you finish a meal, but the food at the back of your fridge that’s been allowed to go bad, food discarded by restaurants and retailers because of a blemish or expiration date, and the food you pack in your child’s lunch that never makes it into their mouth.

I advocate the "clean your plate" habit. The Philippines cannot afford to be wasteful.

"The “clean plate club” was established in 1917 by a government interested in reducing food waste during times of war. While the leftovers from this campaign may not have been good for Americans waistlines, it wasn’t totally misdirected."

Amount of food waste here hits record high

Amount of food waste here hits record high | Food Dumping and Wastage | Scoop.it

"Last year, only about 12 per cent of the total output in food waste was recycled. NEA says it is studying more recycling methods, taking into account cost-effectiveness, practicality and sustainability."

 

From the factory right down to the dining table, more food is being dumped in Singapore.

 

A new record was set for food wastage last year as 703,200 tonnes were generated - a 26 per cent spike from the 558,900 tonnes produced in 2007.

This far outpaced the 15.8 per cent growth in the local population over the same period.

 

The National Environment Agency (NEA) said that besides population growth, a rise in tourist arrivals and increasing affluence had contributed to the problem.

 

GONE TO WASTE

 

There has been a huge increase in food wastage in Singapore.

 

2007 - 558,900 tonnes

2012 - 703,200 tonnes

Wasting food is a very bad idea. Unfortunately, many of us do it even when we don’t mean to. Considering that many people don’t have decent meals to eat on a daily basis, we all should aim to waste as little food as possible.
