Cutting food waste by justone bowl would prevent 855,600 kg of food waste, which is equal to the weight of 5 trains from the Circle Line! Rice, noodles and bread are the most commonly wasted food items in Singapore.
Food waste is also a large contributor to carbon emissions. If food waste were a country, it would rank third (after the United States and China) in terms of emissions.
