THINK – EAT – SAVE . REDUCE YOUR FOODPRINT

While millions of people starve everyday across the world , at least one third of all the food produced gets wasted in the supply chain process. This is such a shame and stopping this wastage can be one of the key aspects of moving towards sustainability.
To create awareness about this major issue , UNEP  has launched its ?THINK-EAT-SAVE. REDUCE YOUR FOODPRINT? campaign.
To mark the First Universal Session of UNEP?s Governing Council , it hosted a zero waste reception and dinner where several ministers , dignitaries , heads of state and VIPs dined on food prepared from ingredients marked as waste.  As a Global Coordinator for Children and Youth , I was privileged to attend this unique dinner where the Executive Director of UNEP and the President of the Governing Council spoke about raising awareness on this very important issue.
I am sharing this initiative on the Ecogeneration forum and request all members to spread the message in your respective zones of influence.
