How to Feed the World

The UN Environment Programme (UNEP) has released a plan to feed the world without contaminating it further by making better use of resources and cutting down on massive waste. UNEP Executive Director Achim Steiner noted that massive amounts of cereal are fed to farmed animals while people go hungry, that 30 million tons of fish are discarded at sea annually, that almost one-third of all food purchased in the United Kingdom each year is not eaten and that in the US losses and food waste could be as high as 40-50 percent.

Currently, 1/3 of the world's grains are fed to farmed animals and in the US the figure is 2/3. There is no room for greed and waste in God's Earth. As stewards, we need to make sure that our planet and its inhabitants live in harmony while using resources mindfully, taking into consideration our health, animals and the environment.
