“Biodiversity” — This is a hidden but real cost of food waste: it decimates biodiversity in a number of ways:
🌄Deforestation, especially in tropical areas, destroys natural flora and fauna, in the name of creating more land for food production. 🐿🐇🌳🌲
🐂🐄🐎 To increase production of livestock, natural land is turned into pastures. The more livestock graze and range on an area, the less natural and diverse the area becomes.
🐡🐠🐟 Fish are caught with little thought given to how the rapid depletion of population will impact their environments. These fish then get thrown out by the consumer, or rejected by stores for not meeting certain standards, or rot in the truck because of lack of modern refrigeration.
