Eat Better

Food becomes rubbish the moment it is thrown into the biowaste bin. Food production, transportation and preparation cause emissions which will have been all in vain when food is thrown away. The largest proportion of emissions is generated in primary produ​ction, i.e. on farms and in greenhouses. Packaging and transportation form only a small part of the climate load of food stuffs.

In Finland about a third of the overall environmental impact of consumption is caused by food. The environmental impact of the food we consume is, on average, of the same magnitude as the impact of our housing and transportation. In their homes, each Finn throws away approximately 23 kg of edible food every year.​
