Food

21.95 Points

Food is one of the most poorly managed resources on the planet. Agricultural food processing and distribution contribute enormously to the concentration of carbon dioxide and its equivalents in the atmosphere.

Nearly one-third of all food produced is thrown away. Production and yield are valued above nutrition, environmental safety, and sustainability. In an effort to make informed conscious decisions Carnevino food purchases include:
