Food Wise

Be food wise on the World Environment Day

5 June, 2013
Celebrated every year on 5 June, the theme of this year’s global awareness day is ‘think, eat, save’, which highlights anti-food waste and food loss; an important issue considering that 1.3 billion tonnes of food is wasted every year, while one in seven people in the world go hungry. This year, founder of DoSomething! Jon Dee urges us to be food wise and rethink our consumption behaviour as $8 billion worth of foods are thrown out from Aussie households and 4 million tonnes go into landfill. Learn more about our impacts on the environment and how we can contribute to a healthier and more sustainable planet from the Food Wise website.

When: Wednesday 5 June, 2013.
