If everyone could walk or bike to the grocery store, bring our cloth bags, and eat all the food you buy well… that would be great! But it’s not reality. I think packaging waste is a problem beyond just the impacts of sending it to the landfill but let’s zoom out and look more broadly at our relationship with food.
In Canada we discard billions of dollars of food every year… if food waste were a country it would rank third largest in the world for greenhouse gas emissions only behind US & China.
When looking at waste vs footprint we can use meal kits for example (known for their heavy packaging), studies are showing the emissions are lower from the kits than purchasing the same groceries to cook at home. This is a result of lowered waste from farm to fork and reduced transportation i.e. better predicting consumption to avoid waste, delivery with multiple stops and locality of produce.
While waste is its own issue, I challenge you to zoom out and consider are you here for a war on waste or a war on emissions?
