Nowadays, in different countries people throw away a huge amount of unused food, but at the same time a lot of people are starving and craving for food and water.
Firstly, in metropolitan cities people tend to buy more and more food, but they simply don’t have time to cook it or just don’t know what to do with it.
Strongly persuasive advertisement makes people buy and consume more. They see a lot of billboards with perfectly made dishes, exquisitely served and eaten with great appetite. Of course, most people want to enjoy the same meals at home. However, coming home, they just forget about it or put it off till better days. Unfortunately, each food product has a shelf-life and can go bad. To solve this problem, food producers should add cooking instructions to the nutrition facts stuck to every food item. This way cooking might become much faster and easier for busy consumers.
Another reason is that as the living standard is getting higher, grocery shops can afford to glut the market with a huge variety of groceries that exceed the demand to a large extent. What’s more, as the quality of people’s lives is growing higher, the value of simple and basic things is gradually being lost. People have stopped about wasted foods. On the contrary, they are ready to dump good food. As a result, trash containers get filled with leftovers which are still comestible. To prevent it, a charity campaign should be launched to collect nearly-expired food from households and food joints and donate it to those who are in need.
Solution: I believe that the problem of wasted food can be solved. The government should encourage a more disciplined approach to food consumption. Besides, it should issue laws for supermarkets and restaurants to utilize the food excess more rationally.
Every day, millions of tons of food are wasted all over the world. Why do you think this is happening? And how can we solve this problem?
It’s better you put this in an essay form with intro – body and conlusion 😀
I just put “problem, opinion, solution” in a essay to post here) To figure out if the introduction, body and conclusion match them.
