Hallo zusammen,habe einen Vortrag in englischer Sprache über die Thematik Food Waste zu halten. Ist der Text richtig, was muss ich verbessern?
What Angi and Vicky explained, raises the following question: What would be the consequences of Food Waste? On the picture we have a fridge, which is nearly empty. In this situation, of course, we are going to buy some food. But not all people can do this. Because the rising demand of food waste has also an effect on the world market prices for food stuff: The result is, a broad level of the population has to hunger. Nowadays 1 billion People suffer from hunger. That shows us: The unnecessary production of food burdened/charged not only our moneybag but also the environment and finally the society. In terms of the environment, this means for one thing: Unnecessary waste of resources: water, power, fertilizer and land for the cultivation of products are consumed unneeded. And on the other hand, it causes 31 % from the environmental pollution. Because 31 % from the environmental pollution results from the nutrition.
The disposal of the food corresponds to C02 emissions from 1.5 million cars. (In Switzerland, it means 36 % of all cars we drive). At the social level (Gesellschaftsebene), if we have a look at the curves of supply and demand (Angebots- und Nachfragekurve), we have as mentioned a rising demand and that is the cause why we have a high world market price for basic foodstuffs. For the economy, this means mainly: A lot of costs. Per household and per year we spend 500 – 1000 CHF on Food Waste. The costs for de losses have also an impact on the market price. The company must produce more to be able to supply the demand (because the consumer lives wastefully). The company has to pass on costs to products. (Kosten auf Produkte umlegen) And the farmer needs also more agricultural direct payments . Because he has to ensure that the fast, cheap and big production is save.
