There are many similarities between the food and fashion industries. Both are hugely important industries that meet basic needs whilst providing much enjoyment. Both industries also have a huge problem with waste.
What is exciting is that in both food and fashion there are innovators seeking to come up with creative solutions to the problem of waste. Winnow is one such project which aims to make it quick and easy to record exactly how food is being wasted through smart meter technology attached to professional chefs food waste bins. The hope is that this will help chefs identify areas for reducing their food waste.
It is time for a wasteless revolution in both food and fashion.
