How to Feed a Growing Planet

This month's National Geographic has a fantastic feature entitled "How to Feed a Growing Planet." Apparently, lots of us are doing a good job of multiplying and replenishing the earth and our population of our planet should increase from 7 billion to 9 billion by the time I qualify for senior citizen discounts. Can we have that many people? Yes, we can, but we might need to change the way we do some things to make the world more accommodating for those who come along in the next few decades. Read more about it and think about what you are wasting. Amazing. 

Makes me want to shop at places like this new zero-packaging grocery that is opening in Austin, Texas. We could all stand to waste a less, and I would love buy my groceries this way. 

How about you? Any thoughts?


  1. Wow! That's incredible to think how much we waste...and really sad. Thanks for sharing!

  2. What a waste? I guess we should start with our selves and reduce food waste in our daily life as much as possible.
