Thou shalt not waste!

Due to the crisis, the fight against waste is a global trend.

According to the FAO (the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organization), food waste accounts for between 95 and 115 kg per person per year in Europe and North America, while it reached 6–11 kg in Africa and Asia. In France, households throw away the equivalent of € 400–1,000 of food per year. So every French household works the equivalent of 15 days to purchase food that will go directly in the trash!

Global awareness has been late in coming, and especially regarding waste during Ramadan. A growing number of voices are rising against an unworthy over-consumption during this month dedicated to moderation, but there remains much to do.
