Today the EkoSkola Committee presented an assembly on the hidden costs of food waste. These are many, and are not immediately obvious. We grouped them into environmental costs, human costs and 'priceless' costs.
Environmental and human costs are sometimes difficult to quantify. Even more difficult, however, to quantify is the 'priceless' costs. For example: How would you price the health of a child? Or the beauty of a destroyed landscape? Do we recognize the value of life and the beauty of different landscapes? Or do we think that everything has a price?
We only see the Tip of the Iceberg when it comes to food waste. This power point presentation (split into two) explores the hidden costs in greater detail:
Feedback is an environmental organisation that campaigns to end food waste at every level of the food system.
