Each year, the food we waste costs the North American economy $278 Billion US dollars and could have fed 260 million people!
This is what else we waste when we waste food:
39 million m3
of landfill space, equivalent to
13 football stadiums
gets used up with our food waste each year
US dollars in wasted landfill tipping fees
In the United States alone, over
32 million hectares
of wildlife habitat
is lost to farmland
to grow food that is never eaten
Enough water to fill
Olympic-sized swimming pools
(18 Billion m3)
Enough energy to power
274 million homes
tonnes of fertilizer
tonnes of greenhouse gases emitted needlessly, the same as driving
cars continuously for a whole year
