The Best in the World, Changing the World
Chris MacAulay, VP Operations, for Too Good To Go North America: "It goes to show that the best apps in the world are the apps actually changing the world."
According to Project Drawdown (2020), reducing food waste is the number one action people can take to help tackle climate change, by limiting the temperature rise to 2°C by 2100. Globally, 40% of all food produced is wasted, which accounts for 10% of all human-caused greenhouse gas emissions worldwide (WWF, 2021). This is happening in a world where 828 million people are affected by hunger every day (WHO, 2021).
