Live wasted food in tonnes:
                  Food Waste In one portion of the world we witness starving societies and on the other, "throwaway" civilisations exist. Each year, approximately 1.3 billion tonnes of food is destined for trash can. This equates to 41 tonnes each second. A portion is discarded immediately after harvest due to the fact that it does not meet the required standards. However, the majority of waste is caused by the home consumer. We should note here that not only is the food itself wasted. Other concerns are the energy and raw materials (such as fertiliser) utilised to harvest the crops along with the process of transporting food over long distances. The ultimate cost of disposal also needs to be taken into account. This is the reason why it is estimated that $750 billion dollars are spent on an annual basis. This equates to $23,782 dollars each second. Even Bill Gates would be bankrupt after only a few weeks! Bill Gates Money Counter
