Food Waste Infographic Shows What Food Gets Fed

While working on a food waste project for the United Nations, Thinktopia discovered that it was not just the food itself that was being wasted. The hidden waste is the resources it takes to create our food: water, fuel, energy, fertilizers, etc. For example, it takes 1000 gallons of water to produce just one pound of hamburger. So check expiration dates and don’t buy more than you can consume. Thank you. Poster created by Patrick Hanlon with Lorenzo Petrantoni.

To create awareness of what food gets fed, Thinktopia created poster with Italian designer Lorenzo Petrantoni.
