IT'S ALL ABOUT CONNECTIONS
The greatest joy about sharing is giving and receiving. Spare Harvest brings people together by connecting them through our marketplace and it just goes from there.
WE HAVE A CONSUMPTION & WASTE PROBLEM
We are consuming more than we need and wasting more than we use. We are consuming through our planets resources at a lightning pace at the same time as wasting finite resources and it’s not sustainable.
1/3 of food produced globally is wasted
34% of all food wasted is from households, compared to 31% from primary products and 25% from manufacturing
By 2050 we will need 3 planets to feed our growing population
If food waste were a country it would be the 3rd largest emitter of greenhouse gases
When food ends up in landfill it producers methane gas which is 25X more potent than CO2 for the environment
Globally 43 million people can’t afford a quality meal every other day
We exist to connect people to share, swap, sell and source spare, idle and unwanted food and garden items. Together we can be part of the solution not just part of the problem.
We need to change the way we think about our relationship with food, so we value it more and stop wasting so much of it.
