Sometimes it is hard to see how much food is being wasted until pictures and numbers are put in front of you. So we decided to do just that. We created this infographic as a visual representation of food waste in the US and around the world.
Food Waste Facts:
- 1.3 Billion tons of food is wasted annually (about 1/3 of all food produced)
- 30-40% of food is never eaten
- Most food is lost at the consumer level
- The U.S. lost about $1 trillion in food waste in 2012
Now that you know how much money and food we are losing, you can help change the statistics and make this world a cleaner and better place!
