Waste is very much part of the modern food production system. It doesn’t have to be. Here’s an infographic that shows how we can close the loop and reduce the waste when it comes to our food.
Even we don’t stick to a completely closed system (if we buy fruit and vegetables as well as grow them for instance – and then there’s the little question of, erm, human waste product), by using the cycle outlined below as much as is possible within the restraints of our individual circumstances, we reduce the waste that is inherent in our modern food system.

If you think my first attempt at an infographic isn’t too disastrous and would like to share it on your own site, you can embed it on your website using the following code:
