CIRCULAR ECONOMY: USING FOOD WASTE AS A RESOURCE THROUGH REFEED’S CIRCULAR NUTRITION
Although world hunger is on the rise, food production is still going strong- ignoring a variety of environmental effects such as rising CO2 emissions, pollution and loss of productivity, energy, and natural resources. Current waste management methods, which are built on a linear consumption model, are obviously unfit to satisfy the longer-term needs of current populations. Therefore, the need for a shift to a circular design for handling food waste that will include more regenerative practices and will restructure the food economy is apparent.
SOIL REGENERATION: BOOSTING SOIL HEALTH THROUGH REGENERATIVE AGRICULTURE
Regenerative agriculture is an expanding, evolving movement with enormous climate reversal potential. This approach aims to restore degraded soil structure and encourage healthier ecosystems by regenerating organic matter in the soil through holistic farming practices such as cover crops, conservation tillage or no-till, new crops or rotations, diversified production systems, reduction or elimination of synthetic chemicals and planned grazing.
