Davant del problema del malbaratament alimentari, creiem que cal donar a conèixer aquest fet, les seves causes i conseqüències, així com tot el que els consumidors podem fer per reduir-lo.
Hi ha coneixements que s’han de fomentar:
Com es conserva el menjar?
Com es fa un menú setmanal?
Quines receptes permeten aprofitar les sobres?
Per això en aquest web, així com a les xarxes socials, recollim i difonem consells de compra i planificació, trucs de cuina i consells per conservar millor els aliments, expliquem les diferències entre caducitat i consum preferent i compartimreceptesd’aprofitament que recollim als nostres tallers pràctics.
Us animem a difondre el missatge: el menjar no es llença.
“De menjar no en llencem ni mica!” és una campanya de l‘Associació Espai Ambiental.
El mundo de las aplicaciones para el móvil entorno al universo del despilfarro alimenticio nos sorprende con cosas con esta. ¿Te imaginas que se pudiera hacer un “mapeo” de los desperdicios que ocasionamos personalmente como consumidores?:

“Why do we throw away so much food?
And how can we stop this kind of waste?
Amazing but true: On the way from the farm to the dining-room table, more than half the food lands on the dump. Most of it before it ever reaches consumers. For instance every other head of lettuce or potato.
European households throw away 100 billion Euros worth of food each year. As much as the annual turnover at Nestlé, the world´s largest food corporation. The food we throw away in Europe would be enough to feed all the hungry people in the world two times over.
Why are ever-greater quantities being destroyed? We seek explanations: from supermarket sales staff and managers, from bakers, wholesale market inspectors, welfare recipients, ministers, farmers and EU bureaucrats. It’s a system that we all take part in: Supermarkets constantly have the complete selection of merchandise on offer, the bread on the shelves has to be fresh until late in the evening and everything has to look just right: One withered leaf of lettuce, a crack in a potato or a dent in an apple and the goods are sorted out; containers of yogurt as early as two days before the ‘sell by’ date has expired.
Agriculture is responsible for more than a third of the greenhouse gases worldwide because farming requires energy, fertilizers and land. What’s more, whenever food rots away at a garbage dump, methane escapes into the atmosphere, a climate gas with an effect 25 times as powerful as carbon dioxide. In other words: when we waste half of our food that has a disastrous impact on the world climate.
