Our Work is divided into several sections:
When we think about waste, most people think about the bins we put out to be collected each week or the litter on our roads and scattered in the countryside. We don’t worry about where it goes, as long as it is taken away. As they say, out of sight, out of mind.
Globally, we throw away 1.3 billion tonnes of food annually…ironically, there are around 1.3 billion people going hungry every day. At home, Ireland households and businesses waste one million tonnes of food each year…that’s 2 ½ times Croke Park, filled to the top. Meanwhile, the world is growing exponentially with population levels expected to reach over 9.5 billion in 2050 and we won’t have enough food to feed them unless we do something now.
With Ireland’s famous amount rain, many of us think we shouldn’t have to worry about water or pay for it as if falls freely from the sky. However, as the debate continues about Irish Water, there is no disagreement that water is a precious resource. We are very fortunate that Ireland does receive the amount of rainfall that it does, but often it falls where it is not needed.
