How to reduce the carbon footprint
Climate experts have determined that wasted food accounts for 10% of the carbon dioxide emissions emitted by humans. Since 30% of the food we produce becomes waste.
Rational consumption of food and the use of active packaging can help reduce our carbon footprint. When we throw away food that has expired in the fridge, we are not only throwing away food but also the energy and water it has taken to produce them. For just one example, producing a kilo of chicken requires approximately 7 kg of CO2.
It's very important when we go to the supermarket to buy with the head and not with the eyes, since wasting food is an aggression against our planet and we have to be aware of the responsible consumption of food, since it's an easy way to reduce emissions from CO2 and also save money.
