 The United Kingdom’s Waste Resources Action Program (WRAP) released results finding that 40% of all household rubbish comes from food gone to waste, amounting to 15 million tons of CO2 emissions.  Over 4 million apples are thrown away each day, 5.1 million potatoes, 2.8 million tomatoes, and 1.6 million bananas.  Industry experts suggested buying smaller quantities and refrigerated storage. 

You have our thanks, WRAP, for helping us to remember to be frugal and conservative in our purchases.  We pray that all people will embrace more prudent shopping practices.
