Visualizing Food Waste XXIV

I sure love me some infographics. This one, created by the Debt Advisory Centre mostly depicts UK data, with some global facts sprinkled throughout.

A few quick points:

  • Roughly speaking, tonnes = tons  (1 tonne = 1.10 tons)
  • I like how it emphasizes the magnitude of waste stemming from date labels and taking too much.
  • The Wembley Stadium factoid–UK food waste 2006-2010 would fill Wembley–highlights the size difference between Britain and the US. The latter, with 5 times the population, fills a similar stadium every year.
  • Love the helpful tips toward the end, especially #7!
