By donating and/or composting food waste, your business can help reduce the amount of food waste sent to landfills. Rotting food in landfills releases methane which is a greenhouse gas much more powerful than carbon dioxide.By donating excess food, you could support local charitable organisations. By composting food, the nutrients are recycled and made available to support the growth of more food reducing the need for environmentally costly fertilisers.
In Australia, 7.6 million tonnes of food is wasted every year. This food waste generates substantial carbon emissions and is costing the economy $37 Billion each year.
