KENYA-FOOD-ENVIRONMENT-UNEP

A waiter serves rejected green salad, grown by Kenyan farmers but rejected by UK supermarkets due to cosmetic imperfections, on February 19, 2013 during the Governing Council of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) at the UN headquarters in Nairobi. The campaign aims to promote actions by consumers and food retailers to dramatically cut the 1.3 billion tonnes of food lost or wasted each year -- which, aside from the cost implications and environmental impacts, increases pressure on the already straining global food system -- and help shape a sustainable future.
