So Much Waste…

the-big-waste-400Why do we spend and waste so much time and energy in bringing fresh produce to your supermarket, when we can just grow locally?

Think of the process: seeding – growing – harvesting – storage – transport – storage again – distribute, all this work and energy spent in order to bring fresh produce to the shelves of a supermarket that can last only for about 3 days with up to 40% will end up as waste1. Add the vulnerability to drought, floods and outbreak of diseases and contamination.

Also add: water becoming a big issue – we cannot produce food without water.

Does it make sense?

There are alternatives!
