In the United States of America -- three hundred million tons of fresh produce is thrown away per year!
Worse, yet, when one stops to think about the number of children in the USA & the world over, who daily go hungry &/or die each minute from starvation.
From Wikipedia on malnutrition --- "There were 925 million undernourished people in the world in 2010, an increase of 80 million since 1990. Another billion people are estimated to have a lack of vitamins and minerals." And just think --- in the USA alone --- three hundred million tons of fresh produce is thrown away per year! Does this knowledge not grieve your heart? It does mine --- right past words to describe how much!
This gal abhors waste of any type --- especially of fresh produce. This idea pleases me beyond words & I sincerely hope that you will find it to your liking, too.
for checking this inglorious fruits & veggies idea out. Maybe, if we all suggest this to our supermarket chains, they will eventually get the idea that consumers will go for the idea of less expensive, while just as tasty veggies & fruits --- thus, resulting in less waste of God's bounty.
