Recent news stories have centered on how to produce more food and allocate scarce water. Forward thinkers are focused on ways to better use what we already have. For instance, WRAP (Waste & Resources Action Programme) is working with manufacturers and retailers to reinvent everything from storage systems, to package sizes, to labeling to reduce waste.
Now those headlines and articles about “money shortages?” I’ll let you decide if they could be resolved by reducing “wastage” too.
We should think about...
- Can we save resources and money by focusing on reducing all types of resource waste in our operation?
- Should we consider partnering with WRAP or similar organizations to brainstorm ways to reduce waste?
- Have we done a water audit of our operation?
- How can we encourage our consumers to waste less?
