How can we achieve circularity with our food and food scraps? Nearly 70% of surplus food is wasted, but composting offers a vital solution. Explore the economic opportunities of composting, including cost savings and job creation. We'll analyze policy frameworks and the power of cross-sector collaboration for systemic change. You’ll discover innovations in food waste tracking and composting technologies and learn about the role of community engagement in driving sustainability.
