I’ve always enjoyed the Worldwatch Institute’s State of the World reports. But now I really like them after the State of the World Report 2011 classifed food waste as a major concern. From Wednesday’s release:
Moreover, “roughly 40 percent of the food currently produced worldwide is wasted before it is consumed, creating large opportunities for farmers and households to save both money and resources by reducing this waste,” according to Brian Halweil, Nourishing the Planet co-director.
(Their blog has plenty of useful info, too.)
Those who get the Travel Channel can watch some dumpster diving on Tuesday’s show. Here’s a teaser.
A startup making anaerobic digesters to fit behind large cafeterias and supermarkets helmed by a guy with an awesome name like Hunt Briggs? How do I become an investor?
Finally: Might “Poo-gloos” be the solution to processing food waste?? Probably not, but it is fun to see that word on the screen…
