IT'S TIME TO... Reduce Waste

Published on 2 November 2023

We are Carla and Laetitia, the team who can help you reduce your waste.

A survey conducted by Eurostat in 2020 revealed that each inhabitant of Luxembourg produced an average of 147 kg of food waste per year, 91 kg of which came from households. The year 2020, marked by the Covid-19 pandemic, was characterised by considerable food waste.   
Food waste has a significant environmental impact, contributing 16 % of total greenhouse gas emissions. At the same time, the production of our food requires a significant amount of water, so food waste is a waste of this resource. By wasting almost 30 % of food production, it is estimated that our food system and our consumption habits contribute to the waste of around 500 litres of water per person per day. (Source: D.
