Help! My living room is overflowing with pizzas!!!! 🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕
Another week, another one of those #BonusHauls.
I seriously can’t believe how often I’m able to share these with you! 40 pizzas just sitting at the top of my local dumpster!
Remember, the #BonusHauls
are the perfect symbol of the modern, globalised, industrialised Food System. This is a system that unbelievably wastes between a THIRD and a HALF of all food produced on this planet!!
This project is extreme in that I’m documenting my year on living on society’s excess, but, in a way, this is definitely not the most important aspect of this project.
It’s the #BonusHauls that are fundamentally crucial. This is my way of providing you tangible, visual evidence to the MONUMENTALLY large levels of waste that is being produced every single day across the richer cities of this world. Almost nothing is being done about this. Massive companies continue doing the same old rubbish, trying to greenwash us all into buying our way to sustainability.
I shared with you yesterday via a Story that I’ve downloaded a series of reports from leading UK food waste not-for-profit WRAP. The devil is in the detail with all these environmental academic reports. From experience, I know there’s always some dubious, crappy definition that an academic has conjured up to make sense of the complex world we inhabit. Once that definition is agreed upon, it’s extremely difficult to alter it, as it becomes the norm across these powerful institutions. Hence, you get global food waste taking places for decades on end. What I can promise is that I will try my best to unearth that definition, which is rigging the system in companies favour. I will report my investigations with you in April.
If you have any friends, partners & family who care about the environment, society, nature & the planet, please do tag them in any of my posts to help spread the word about the ridiculous food waste that is occurring, so that we can put an end to this madness!
