Some of you may have seen "The Earthshot Prize: Repairing Our Planet" on BBC 1 last night.
The Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge established the @earthshotprize to unite people to tackle some of today’s biggest challenges, delivering impact on a range of issues that matter to Their Royal Highnesses and to society.
One of the categories was "Build a Waste Free World".
"The global food system generates between 25-30% of the world’s total greenhouse gas emissions. Meanwhile, hundreds of millions suffer from food insecurity.
The award was won by the city of Milan for their Food Waste Hubs initiative which tackle two problems in one. Launched in 2019 with the aim of halving waste by 2030, each hub recovers food mainly from supermarkets and companies’ canteens and gives it to NGOs who distribute it to the neediest citizens."
The award will enable Milan to share their learning with towns and cities throughout the world.
We've been doing out bit here in Surrey the last few years and going from strength to strength.
