Consumption is a reoccurring theme for us (and on this blog!) as it relates to what we consume, how it is produced, who produces it and the impacts it has locally and globally. We are pleased to continue sharing projects that explore the causes as well as some solutions to the state of consumption in the world today.
GOOD and Oxfam give some background to the infographic:
Around the world every night, one in seven people go to bed hungry—that’s almost one billion people. People are hungry not because there isn’t enough food produced but because our food system is broken. In fact, 80% of the world’s hungry are directly involved in food production. We can address this hunger if we support small-scale food producers, tackle climate change, and reduce food waste.
