Did you know that around 40% of the food we produce gets thrown out? A whopping 40% ! How did that come to be? I know we're considered to be the 'throw-away' society - if it breaks, tears, or tarnishes just buy a new one, but food? This really surprised me, with the cost of food rising and with the economy what it is, more and more people are not able to buy even the simplest, healthiest foods.
