Road Trip!

In Jonathan Bloom news:¬†I’m excited to be heading west for my D.I.Y. book tour next week, visiting San Francisco, Seattle and Portland. Or as I like to call it, The Compost Coast. For a full list of events, glance over at the sidebar, or visit my book site. Hope to see you somewhere!

In other news:

In this piece on Walmart and India, we learn that 30 percent of food in India is wasted, primarily due to poor cold storage.

The wasteful practice of ‘discard‘ called by its real name: stupid.

Finally, there was a 2.2% increase in food prices last month. That’s the largest jump since the UN started tracking the statistic 20 years ago. Wow.

If there’s a silver lining here, it’s that we may just be forced to treat our food a little more carefully. Hope so.
