Today wasting costs to the atmosphere 500 million tons of CO2. According to a research conducted by the Postdam Institute in 2050 the production of food intended to be wasted (i.e. the one in surplus) will result in up to 2.5 billion tons of greenhouse gases.
But a circular economy is possible: a zero wasting system in which what is not being used at one point in the food chain, it becomes a resource for another area. In the last post I wrote for the blog Buonenotizie del Corriere, with whom I collaborate now for a year, I talk about some beautiful initiatives implemented in Italy and abroad.
