1.3 billion tonnes of food waste every year. That’s what our current systems, activities, and behaviours are allowing on this planet. We can and we must change this.
A circular economy approach will allow us to break away from the traditional linear model of make-use-dispose that enables the unprecedented amount of waste that we are generating today.
SeedFuel is helping to enable a circular economy approach by providing value-added goods made from edible byproducts – such as mango seeds and peels – that would have otherwise gone to landfill. Not only is the potential value of the seeds and peels lost when they are sent to landfill, but so too are the resources that went into producing them, including water, energy, and labour.
