The Issue of Food Waste in the World
Vilma Bratkauskaitė’s The Issue of Food Waste in the World was created to bring awareness to the issue of irresponsible food usage resulting in irrational food waste. Although food shortage affects almost a quarter of the world’s population, 1.3 billion tons of usable food is disposed of annually. If this disposed food were to be entrained, the total length would equal 287,765 km, or the equivalent of seven trips around the equator. Despite the obvious extent of food waste, and the starvation of populations, people are encouraged to consume even more.
